Another trick of our trade is to address the reader: "You are
responsible for such and such"; "To start the engine, turn the key on
the front of the computer." (Forgive my capitalization!)

Whatever you do, don't make the mistake that a local restaurant chain
made on the back of its checks, where they ask, "Did your server
introduce his/herself?" Then again, it's a country-sausage
restaurant, and a waiter there might introduce hisself.
