I wouldn't dream of it

Here is a picture of the "do not disturb" sign from our hotel on Crete. As you can see, a spell checker was not used before they printed them. I meant to post this earlier, but can you believe I actually forgot about it until I was looking through our pictures again. Obviously, this was quite an inducer of merriment for me and my husband, since we are apparently six years old.

For those of you unfamiliar with crude elements of the English language, turd means poop.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world!

I guess I have a low sense of humor too. One of my proudest linguistic moments was teaching Mama the second meaning of "to cut the cheese." :-)

I just LOVE running across those sorts of signs when I go to places where English is not the first language. But I'm easily amused. :)
