you know, "on"


Sean found this in a bathroom. They may or may not want you to leave a light on. Or do something else with it, for which "on" is a euphemism.

Well, thank God for the little light bulb drawing. If it weren't there, I'm afraid I wouldn't know what to do!

They were obviously quoting the light-switch. I think that sign would give me an irresistible urge to turn the light "off"

You can find tons of quoted phrases all over this website, specifically in the marketing tools like this PDF.

Because if the lights are "off"
someone might trip and fall on their "face"

so, since it's in quotes, that means leave it on, only if you want to right?
