"Didn't You Notice?" - Jennyanykind, 1998

I just found this note posted by the front door of our Oxford office building...



Do you suppose the writer even noticed the humor here?

Due to?
I'm never sure about this - should it be "owing to" or "because of"? or indeed, it might be correct!

I can never figure it out :)

It's due to/owing to/bacuse of my lack of grammatical education :)

Noz, in the States we would generally say "because of" or "as the/a result of". The other two choices sound awkward to my ears...but so do quite a few expressions over here! ;)

Ha! Pretty bad when the medical center closes because everyone's sick...doesn't give you a lot of faith in their services, does it?

Gnightgirl,

You thought exactly the same thing I did. Funny, isn't it?
