Far from perfect: Google Translate


A Picture of you
I was utterly pissed when I received a photo of a trash can with the note "A picture of you."

Paced around most of the day angrily thinking out loud "HOW DARE HE"

After I simmered for hours I returned  to GOOGLE TRANSLATE
I found the alternate translation:
"A picture for you."

It's a computer generated message notifying me that a Thai friend had posted a picture on his home page, neither of me, nor for me.

Of course I'm, glad I didn't stomp over to my friend's house and give him a lesson in vulgar English.  I had considered doing just that.

Thanks Google Translate!
Obviously my blood pressure needed churning.
