Wisdom Lesson from a Laugh 2

Broken English
Three immigrants in America were trying to learn the English language. One was trying to tell his two friends about the difficulty he and his wife were having in their effort to have children. “I think my poor wife must be impregnable,” he said.
The second immigrant remarked, “That’s not the right word. She is inconceivable.”
The third immigrant confidently said, “Both of you are using the wrong words. She is unbearable.”

How often have we tried to correct the mistakes of others when in actual fact, we are just as ignorant and no better?
