While Milgrom waited at the airport to board his plane, he noticed a computer scale that would give your weight and a fortune. He dropped a quarter in the slot, and the computer screen displayed: “ you weigh 195 pounds, you are married and you’re on your way to San Diego.” Milgrom stood there dumbfounded.
Another man put in a quarter and the computer read: “ you weigh 184 pounds, you’re divorced and you’re on your way to Chicago.”
Milgrom said to the man: “ are you divorced and on your way to Chicago?”
“Yes,” came the reply.
Milgrom was amazed. Then he rushed to the men’s room, changed his clothes and put on dark glasses. He went to the machine again. The computer read: “ you still weigh 195 pounds, you’re still married. And you just missed your plane to San Diego!”
He has went!
“Where is john? Does anyone know?” the English teacher asked the class.
“I haven’t seen him this morning,” answered Tom.
“He has went to hospital,” answered Peter.
The teacher became angry. “Peter Woodhead,” he said, “I have told you again and again not to say ‘he has went’. Now you have made the same mistake again. Today you must write ‘he has gone’ fifty times after school. Then perhaps you will remember it.”
Soon it was half past four. Lessons were over. The other children all went home, but Peter had to stay behind. While he was doing his punishment, the teacher stood up and left the classroom. When he came back, he found a letter from Peter. It read: “dear sir, I have written ‘he has gone’ fifty times, and now I have went home.
