I would be very confused about what to do. My education is all in my big head, but I think with my little one. Since this is in a bathroom, that’s the one that would be showing.

A gentle reminder: Non-educated persons are not so gently reminded to p*** off.

Actually that’s a Spanish quote that means “Demonstrate that you are an polite and social people” but instead to translate the idea they translate the words.

Case of Engrish common. XD

‘educación’ usually does refer to education. Here, it is used in the sense of ‘manners’ or ‘etiquette’. Not the most common usage of the two, so it’s easy to see what went wrong.

por favor = please

Demeustre = inflected form of the verb demostrar.

demostrar = to prove

su = your

educacion = education, manners (taste)

(Please don’t pee on the seat)

Or maybe:

PLEASE FLUSH AFTER USE

I don’t really see a problem here. It’s a fairly subtle message, but it could be taken as “show your education [by flushing the toilet before you leave]”. Similar to “act your age”.

In portuguese and spanish we say “educado” to “gentleman”. So, “mostre sua educação”, mean “show that you is a gentleman” (mostre que você é educado). Is another way to see the world, there are nothing funny in this. One gentleman is one person with good education.

It’s just that in English [education] lost much of its original meaning.
In Romance languages the word encompasses the meaning of upbringing,manners etc.
