Do Not Disturb

On my office door I have one of those hanging cards from a hotel that you attach to the doorknob to advise the housekeeping staff of your wishes. This one, from a hotel in Toronto, says “Do Not Disturb” on one side. On the flip side of the card is the same phrase in French—“Ne pas deranger”. But, as my husband pointed out, the literal translation of this phrase in French is, “Do Not Derange”. I love that. It’s fair warning to anyone in my life.
