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:
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.
