Getting your priorities right

In the restrooms of French freeway service stations managed by Total, the soap dispensers partake of pressing advice:

Not too much soap please

The message reads:

ONLY ONCE
Press for
clean hands
1X

Total wants to save on costs. Soap is money.

Fine. But on the matter of hand-washing one might (perhaps) think, in the current circumstances, of more urgent advice?

    The instruction doesn’t just show skewed priorities, it makes them look silly to waste money on displaying an instruction that almost no one will follow anyway.

  2. Six months later, Covid entering its “second wave” in France, and those signs are still there! Ridicule does not kill (although Covid does).
