Sewing machine for sale

These four classified advertisements appeared in a newspaper on four consecutive days: the last three trying to correct the mistake of the first day.

MONDAY
For sale - SK Sharath has a sewing machine for sale. Phone 255-0707 after 7PM and ask for Mrs Mani who lives with him cheap.

TUESDAY
Notice: We regret having erred in SK Sharath's ad yesterday. It should have read, "One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 255-0707 and ask for Mrs Mani, who lives with him after 7PM."

WEDNESDAY
Notice: SK Sharath has informed us that he has received several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the classified ad yesterday. The ad stands correct as follows: "For sale - SK Sharath has a sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 255-0707 after 7PM and ask for Mrs Mani who loves with him."

THURSDAY
Notice: I, SK Sharath, have no sewing machine for sale. I smashed it. Don't call 255-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I have not been carrying on with Mrs Mani. Until yesterday, she was my housekeeper but she quit.
