    #1 Turn on water
    #2 Wave hands close to the water
    #3 Turn water off

    No need to waste a paper towel, instantly dry!

    No, I suspect that`s just how bad general education is getting. Whoever made it probably thought that quotes are another way to add emphasis. Just today I saw a 5`x7` sign in a store that spelled bargain as "Bargin" (yeah it was capitalized at the end of the sentence too).

    I waited ten minutes. No employees came in, so I washed them myself.

    At my age, I am not agile enough to wash anything else in a sink.

    Reminds me of a sign I saw on someone`s house:
    "Please" "remove" "boots"
    Seriously. I laughed a lot and thought about walking in with my boots on...

    Don`t you have, on that side of the pond "wash your hands" as a euphemism?
    Lady of the manor is in the servants` kitchen as the grimy gardener comes in from a hard morning`s toil:
    "Aren`t you going to wash your hands before lunch?"
    "No, thankee, ma`am, I did that up against a tree `fore I come in."

    A local battery company has the slogan on their trucks: Wanna "start" something. Literal translation: (I) want to so-called start something.
    People are so damn iggerunt.

    Snicker, yea I`ll wash my hands, why what else did you want me to wash.

    Air quotes are evil when they are mistaken for real quotation marks. Need a different symbol.

    I use, "I`m gonna go `wash my hands.`" But have to give a, "you know what I mean!" glare to keep the snarkhounds quiet.
