You Will Be Chareed

I was in a hotel recently, somewhere in Thailand, I don't remember where just now.  There was a laminated card hanging in the room that said:

Dear Customer

Please do not use heavy items such as iron and hair straightening equipment in the room.  And damage caused or items within the room will be chareed 5000 Baht. 

It's a fair request and a fair amount for liquidated damages (5,000 Baht is  $150 or so).  And the English, they came "this close" to getting it right!  I always think:  they should have asked me to check it.
