Do Not Derange

I collect “Do Not Disturb” signs from hotels. I have a favorite from a beautiful hotel in Toronto that says “Do Not Disturb” on one side, and on the flip side of the card is the same phrase in French—“Ne Pas Deranger”. But, as John recently pointed out, the literal translation of this phrase in French is, “Do Not Derange”.  I keep this sign on my office door at home. It is fair warning to everyone in my life.
