There are altogether 7 characters here meaning: Please (1) – not (2) – over(3) – here (4) – wash (5) –clothes (6+7). Apparently the translator knew enough English to put “please” at the end of the sentence, but the 2nd Chinese character must have given the poor guy a lot of trouble, as it shared the same pronunciation as “thing” or “matter”(物) (though different characters).Thus, the tragic result.
