I think you have got it right brother that, many people who are working at good posts do not how to use English well and the ones who know it well do not get jobs.It is such an irony.Well all that you have written about leave applications was such a hilarious thing that i will mail it to everybody in my list.I think that needs to be circulated to inspire people to learn and use English in right way.I think this will make many people laugh loudly as well.
