"We are looking for a senior Admin person for our software company (5 yrs old)"
This was the opening line for a email ad / request for a job ...
I was wondering ... what the "5 year old" refers to ...
Is it a 5 year old company OR
Do they need a 5 year old "senior admin person" (that would be real fun) OR
Do they need a 'senior admin person' with 5 years experience
This statment reminded me of one of those email forwards where they pick up emglish statements and then do a post mortem on them to bring out the humour due to transferred epithet !!
