Tiếng Anh của IT Reporter thuộc loại “miền núi”. Khi hắn cất tiếng thì ở dưới đã cười vẻ khinh bỉ, sao lại có loại như thế này mà vào làm ở WB. Vốn điếc không sợ súng, y sang HQ và thử thi viết báo tiếng Anh. Vì tiếng kém nên hắn chọn loại cực ngắn “25 từ”. Không ngờ thằng cha Mường Mán lại được giải 25$, mỗi từ 01 USD.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the World Bank … six decades of development work carried out by thousands of staff around the world. Each staff member, in a unique way, makes a difference to the success of development. We’d like to know how.
The Internal Communications unit of the Bank Group, in collaboration with the Staff Association, the World Bank Family Network (WBFN), the 1818 Society, and the Bank Group Archives, is sponsoring a contest, open to all staff, retirees, and immediate family members.
The theme of the contest is “Making a Difference — One by One.” Please take a minute to tell us in 25 words or less how you contribute (or have contributed) to the Bank Group’s mission — for example, through your work with clients, by assisting a colleague, or supporting a family member, or anything else you can think of. To enter the contest, simply reply to this message. We’ll be sending prizes (Amazon.com gift certificates) to the best responses: the most original, the most moving, the most amusing, the most effective.
PS: If you think you need more than 25 words to tell your story, you can also enter a longer essay or even a photo. Tell us — with words or a picture — what you do, what you’ve done, or what you’ve seen that makes a difference. All entrants will receive a 60th anniversary souvenir. For more details on the contest, including prizes, go here. The contest closes April 30.

Tạm dịch: “Ô tô đang đi hả con. Vâng, cha ạ. Đường này ngày xưa xấu lắm. WB nâng cấp đó”. Cha tôi lòa nhưng vẫn cảm nhận được con đường.
(PS. Cha tôi cuối đời bị lòa và tai nghe rất kém Chuyện viết dựa trên một lần IT Reporter đưa cụ ra Hà nội chữa bệnh bằng ôtô. Mới hay, sự phát triển tốt đẹp thì người mù cũng “nhìn” thấy).
