sorry people, but i don`t wash after a bathroom visit.
not only is it a waste of time, but its certain to be an activity where you are most likely to come into contact with the surface contaminants of the hands of others.
And besides, the bathrooms are cleaned every night at starbucks where i frequent, which is more than can be said for handles on doors, handrails in malls, money, items at the grocery....
the problem we have in a germophobic society is that our immune systems are being weakened by the simple fact that there aren`t enough microbes in sterilised environments to allow our systems to "work out".
and now drunks are beginning to drink the hand clenser provided in public places.
and don`t get me started on peanut allergies.
i went to post a package last week and i was eating mixed nuts from a bag.
the clerk jumped back as if she`d been shot from a cannon.
"i have a peanut allergy" she said from a safe distance.
she then took the package, weighed it and took my money from my hand with any further ado.
i felt like offering her a nut.
we are convinced to behave in more and more illogical ways all the time.
pay attention people, and think things through...unless you want to be like the peanut girl....
