Hello all,

I need to put up a sign in the break room of my office. Could you tell me which sentence is more polite and formal one? And if you know better one, please let me know.

1. You may cause disturbance to someone resting
1. You may disturb your co-workers' resting

Thank you,

    Welcome to the forum, molmoli!

    Please tell us what you want the sentence to mean. I presume you are asking people to be quiet, but, taken literally, the sentences appear to give people permission to disturb others. Who is supposed to be quiet, and where are the co-workers who are resting?

    Thanks Florentia52,

    Actually, employees who wants to use this room should make a reservation in outlook first, but some people just go in and it may disturb the people that the people that really deserve to rest.
