I know what you mean!  Whenever I see someone leaving the bathroom without washing their hands, I have to hold myself back from screaming WASH YOUR HANDS!!!!!!!  I never touch a door when I have to leave, I usually push it open with my shoulder or I use a towel to pull it open.  That is just the grossest thing ever.

I’m addicted to hand sanitizers.  I wash my hands, dry them, put on hand sanitizer and then put on anti-bacterial hand lotion.  So, I defintely feel ya on this front!

i have seen people IN MY OFFICE do it.  I can’t look at those people in the same way again. They might as well have just went to the bathroom in their cubicle for how I picture them these days.  Across the board dis-gus-ting!

I usually take the sanatizer out of my purse as i leave the stall put some in my hand once i get out of the stall so people know I do clean my hands then i open the restroom door and then use the hand sanatizer. i prefer to wait until I am out of the restroom to use it.  I hate it when people dont wash. Especially in a public setting and more so now with the flu. I had it and dont know if you can get it again, but I do not want to find out the hard way. Plus EWWW!!!

I’m amazed at the people who won’t FLUSH, clearly did a #2 and STILL DIDN’T WASH!!! Ugh! Seriously, I turn off the faucet with a towel, use a different one to dry my hands, then use another one after that to open the door. And then I see those same people touching stuff all over whatever store I’m in. One of these days I’m going to absolutely SNAP on someone, and it won’t be pretty.

I think I take a middle road on this. It is super gross when people don’t wash their hands and I always always do… but beyond that I’m not opening door with my feet or anything. I’ve heard it isn’t good to use too much antibacterial stuff because it can make your body used to it and it won’t work when you really need it to or something? 

I feel like I’m reasonably cautious with the hand washing and I do use antibacterial gel if I’m going to be eating and haven’t had a chance to wash my hands, but other than that I don’t worry about it. And I very very rarely get sick.

I’m pretty much the same way.  I wash my hands a lot and get grossed out by touching stuff in public places.  I can’t stand it when my hands don’t feel clean.

I was at an airport a few weeks ago and same thing happened! I was so shocked I actually said outloud, “GROSS!”  Haha…. I don’t know if she heard me or not, but I just couldn’t believe it!

yeah Corgi, i don’t go nuts about it, but I just really am disturbed when you witness someone not doing the basics. I’m a hand washer, and a sanitizer after the gas pump or before eating type of gal.  But seeing those ladies I know for a fact don’t wash their hands (which is so simple and takes so little time!) going in the candy dish really is icky.

This is timely! This literally just happened.

So there’s a Gross Guy at work. I’ll leave out the details, but from looking at him and observing him, you know hygiene and he have never friended each other on FB, you know?

So someone left a small bag of cookies in the break area. I am walking by and GG is the only person in the break area and is mauling the bag like a rabid racoon hitting a trash can in the middle of the night – touching everything in the bag to extract a single cookie.

GG takes his new snack and goes back to his cube.

I make a beeline for the area, fling the bag into the trash and declare, “YOU ARE WELCOME, EVERYONE!”

Yuck.

Keep in mind that she might have used the hand sanitizer in the stall or as she was kind of walking out.  I do this most of the time.  I think washing your hands in a dirty public restroom is pretty fruitless and hand sanitizer works better.

EWwwww. I can see skimping out once in awhile at home (guilty, i know, shame on me) but never in public. My mom is one of those people who doesn’t always wash her hands. Oh i also pet my cats before i eat at home and don’t wash my hands first. i’m sure it’s icky. Anyways, I always hold out some sanitizer for her and give her a dirty look. She doesn’t think it’s gross! I always use sanitizer in public places….but I get paranoid that someone will think I didn’t use it so I whip it out in plain view, lol. I don’t want people to think i’m gross =]

Yea, I am also guilty of being a bit OCD. i dont touch the door or the stall doors or the faucets. I use either my foot for the doors or a napkin for the faucets.

You could never be too clean. 🙂
