Subject to interpretation
A friend (who happens to own a motorcycle) e-mailed me the following "ad" from the Auto Trader web site for a 2006 Suzuki GSXR 1000. (I specify the details of the make and model out of deference to my friend and other bikers).:
This bike is perfect! Only done 7000 kms and has had its 1500 km dealer service. No falls/scratches. I use it as a cruiser/commuter. I'm selling it because it was purchased without proper consent of a loving wife. Apparently "do whatever the f*!# you want" doesn't mean what I thought. Call me. Steve...
Apocryphal? Likely, but it's a good reminder that no matter how plain the words, communication between humans is rife with the possibility of misinterpretation!
