(in-CON-vee-ence) n. A situation, for which the "Mgmt" apologizes, that occurs when something is either no longer available, no longer accepted, currently out of service, or has become more trouble than it was before. It is usually found on handwritten or computer-printed signs in places of business, but rarely on professionally-made signs, and is probably the result of poor spelling or short attention span.
We no longer accept personal checks. Sorry for the inconvience. - Mgmt
