WASH HANDS | What's with the Quotes?

Wash Hands

That law that mandates these signs is silly enough, but what does this restaurant mean by putting quotes around the words "wash hands"? We don't really mean wash hands?


  1. crazy. i was wondering about that one day. i was in a clothing store bathroom and i saw the sane " "'s. MAYBE it means that they have to humor the "law" and just "wet hands"..? i don't know. the quotations might be a code to the employees.. it makes this sign look suspicious, doesn't it?

  2. I wonder if they cover what the code means during employee "orientation." Thanks for your comment.
