Mind Your English....

Some of you may recognize this notice. It is found in some of the rooms rented to students...

1. Apparently, the person who put up this notice, does not want to have anything to do with pillow and bedsheet so badly until he put this notice. The word 'Disclaimer' defined by Random House Dictionary as:

1. the act of disclaiming; the renouncing, repudiating, or denying of a claim; disavowal.
2. a person who disclaims.
3. a statement, document, or assertion that disclaims responsibility, affiliation, etc.; disavowal; denial.

A disclaimer notice is normally used to disclaim affiliation (like for example, 'this is not an official website of ABC company' or 'We provide software for educational proposes only and we are not responsible for any damage caused by software on this page!')

2. 'Pillow and bedsheet are not included and supplied by XXXXX'? It should be written at 'Pillow and bedsheets are not included or supplied by XXXXX'. It should be 'either...or' and NOT 'either...and'. Correct me if I am wrong.
