If you just stop to think... Sometimes you realize just how absurd some people's fears and actions are.
This isn't going to be really deep, but I hope that it causes you to think.
So, on to the topic at hand: I was listening to Laura Ingraham's show one day and she goes off on a rant about someone who didn't wash her hands after using the restroom. And it starts me thinking...
(Why am I sharing this with you? Well, blame it on the anonymity of the internet, but that's another topic.)
Do you wash your hands after you're done with the facilities?
Do you only wash your hands when someone is in the bathroom with you?
Do you touch the knobs with your dirty hands to turn them on and with your clean hands to turn them off?
Do you use a towel to both turn them on and off?
Would it make more sense to turn them on with the towel (thus cleaning them) and off without - or vice versa?
Do you use a towel to open the door on your way out? Do you throw the towel away in the bathroom while holding the door or dispose of it elsewhere?
Did you realize that, on the way into the stall, you touched some of the same spots that previous users touched on their way out of it? You put your fingers on various parts of your clothing. Your pants lay on the floor. You pick them up and put them back on.
Wouldn't it be much more sanitary to wash your hands before you put your pants (skirt/dress for women (and others))? Wouldn't people think you quite strange if they saw you standing at the sink with your clothes around your ankles?
Do you still care? Thanks for your patience. :^)
