"wet" paint

Submitter Elia explains:

While it's true that by the time I got home the paint was merely "wet," I'm not sure if the folks my landlady has painting are really concerned about whether I touch it or not. I'm also not sure if maybe they're referring to the band the Doors, since that looks like a possessive apostrophe after the word. My husband, being generous, suggests that perhaps all those stray marks are actually meant as artistic renderings indicating splattered paint.

I like how it obviously doesn't matter to them if you're careful or not. If you get paint on your new outfit, they're not responsible since you obviously didn't "read" their sign. ;)

maybe the brand name is W.E.T. so they had to put it in quotes. I am always intrigued by the use of paired upper and lower quotes.
