A little funny thing I came to when I was in Kandy .. yesterday.
I had to go to the Municipal Council to sort out something and this is what my contact there said to me.
අයියේ කිසි දේකට බය වෙන්න එපා. ඔතන ඉස්සරහා ඉන්නවා සිංහයෙක්.
ඌ ඇරෙන්න ඔතන ඉන්න අනිත් ඔක්කොම එවුන් පගා මරුවෝ.
Funny at first ! .. but that's how low the public service had fallen in the eyes of commoners in Sri Lanka now !
