Hey guys thanks for trying :)
By the way Emilio Romero had almost guessed it so let me clear it
The answer is that he use to say the same (you're next) to his grandmum when they used to go to funerals. thats why his grandmum stopped saying this.
Funny right? :)

OK guys now let me post something a bit harder ::)
I've two questions for you all any body answer them will get a prize :)
1) One simple short sentence which has got all the 26 alphabets in it?
2) Once there was poor blind old man, God asked him to make one wish and I'll fulfill it for you. the man had three sons, one suggested that he should ask God for his eyes so that he could see the world, the 2nd one suggested that we are poor so he should ask God for wealth, the 3rd one suggested that you don't have any grandchild so he should ask for a grandchild to God.
Now the question is that how can he ask for all the 3 wishes in one sentence (without a punctuation and conjunction in it) so that God'll fulfill it for him?

Jackdaws love my big sphynx of quartz.

There are lots of them in a variety of languages here.

OK, that's your first wish- what are you doing with the next two?
You might have asked for 3 more wishes or for 4 in total.
Of course you might say "I want to see my grandson grow up rich"

The first one is right but unfortunately the 2nd answer is wrong. he is supose to ask for three things in one sentence so think again......

Here's one I saw on Die Hard 3, how do you get exactly 4 gallons of water with a 3 gallon and a 5 gallon bottle?

you put 10 gallons of water into a container by filling the 5 gallon containers twice..then you use your 3 gallon container to remove 6 gallons ie (two three gallon removals) thus leaving you with exactly 4 gallons of water.

Fill the 5 gallon one - pour it into the 3 gallon one - this gives you 2 gallons in the 5 gallon tub.

Pour away the 3 gallons

Pour the 2 gallons into the 3 gallon pot

Fill the 5 gallon one

now top up the 3 gallon one from the 5 gallon one - this will only take one gallon leaving you with 4 left in the 5 gallon pot.
