Oops... :-))
Hi, Denis! Recently you wrote in netmail to Ardith Hinton:

DM> What you mean: Oops... (don't find this word into
DM> dictioonary)?

"Oops!" is an interjection expressing surprise or apology, most often
used when the speaker (or writer) realizes s/he has made an error.

AH> Sign next to a cash register at a local emporium:
AH> Please do not place any items in front of debt machine.

In this case the person who made the sign was referring to a piece of
electronic equipment which reads debit & credit cards. The omission of the "i"
in the word "debit" changed the meaning in such a way that it could remind some
customers of how much money they already owe (e.g.Wink Visa or MasterCard.... ;-)
