Overquoted signage

I’ve never understood why people use quotation marks instead of just bolding or italicizing important text.  Do they learn this from their “parents”?  Is it taught in some “school” districts?  Or is it just plain “genetic”?

In this instance, I couldn’t help but leave a snarky Post-It.  I really wanted to add periods, too, but didn’t.  If you want to see somebody who’s also annoyed by such mistakes, please visit the The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotations.
