These are some idioms and short short fiction.


This happened to me years ago. When I applied to a school in the Middle East, they asked me for an experience certificate. I didn’t know what to do. Then I browsed the webpage of the previous school where I worked, and to my surprise, I saw the principal’s digital signature. I filched it and made an experience letter.
