What do you say .... ?

Colonisation of a third world country by Germany, Britain and France had brought confusion to its people; especially in English conversion:

F = Foreign Manager N = Native worker

N : Patron, me no coming tomorrow.
F : Why?
N : My mother died.
F : Last week you told me your mother died. Now died again?! How many mothers do you have?
N : One, Sir. Last week died, now died finish.

[Native interpretation : "died" = sick & "died finish" = dead]
