the michigan difference.
I like how "you have reserved" is in italics, but "it" isn't.Like yesterday's post, this post is best read imagining someone saying it aloud
That reminds me how a long time ago on "The Weakest Link," the lady would say "you ARE the weakest link, goodbye" but then all the ripoff t-shirts said "you are THE weakest link" - maybe to avoid getting sued or something.
I love signs that capitalize every word except a few. I saw one the other day along the lines of "Please be Considerate of Others Who may be Waiting"
The emphasis on "prevented" is the weirdest.
"This equipment" becomes "the equipment." You've prevented them from using THIS equipment, not any equipment.
you can almost imagine some uptight faculty member / equipment guard screaming at you for touching the projector (I went to a psycho private school, so I don't know about anyone else, but we had this one teacher that would always scream at EVERYONE and I can totally hear her saying this)..."HOW *dare* you TOUCH the equipment. Have you reSERVED IT!?"
haha...i just saw this very sign today. what a small world.
Also:May Have Prevented a Faculty MemberFrom Using the Equipment for His or HerClass.
