Learner's Mistake Twelve

Lost Luggage?

This was found on a sign in a hotel:
"We take your bags and send them in all directions!"  
Explanation: This sounds as if you will never see your suitcases (also called "luggage") again! (Some people think airlines do this all the time!) The sign should have been something like this: "We can send your bags ahead to any destination" or "We can send your bags wherever you wish". That would be a very convenient service for travelers. Students especially need to be careful of the difference between "any" and "all". If you use "any", it seems there is a choice. If you say "all", it means your bags could go north, south, east AND west. Oh NO! (^_^)
