In boarding school In the 90s one of our fellow students lost his bucket and went crying to the school sergeant. The conversation went like this:

Student: Excuse me sir I lost my bucket.

Sergeant: Every time you lost ya bucket. If I find it will you "resemble" it?

Mine was a long time ago in secondary school. . .Lol. I can't forget it though. We complained that our home economics teacher was eating our practical food. In anger she called all of us and started ranting:

"What is wrong with all of you? Why are you talking as if you did not ate out of it? Won't I give the teachers?? Did Mr. Cambridge not ate out of it? Did the Principal not ate out of it??"

At that point nobody was angry anymore lol. We were all cracking up

The one that made me go crazy was this statement. "If you have not gotten your materials, go and got yours". Please, don't ask who made that statement.

Everything is correct except using the "and" in come "and" get yours instead of come get yours

Addicted2Women:

Americans commit the most grammatical blunders you would ever imagine.

Non Americans do think that Americans are all educated and can write and speak good English, millions of them don't know the states in their country, their city mayor, the cities in their state, their continent, the countries in their continent and the worst is that 90% of them thinks that Africa is a country

Nigeria is a multilingual community and the major problem with expressing oneself in another language that isn't your LI(that is first language) is the problem of transference of lang.structures from the L1 to L2 which is the norm for most Nigerians.
Transference of structures from Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa etc to English.
