To Wash Or Not To Wash...

This has been bothering me for at least 3 of the 4 years that I have worked here....

We work with a lady that doesn't wash her hands after she uses the bathroom...yeeeck!

She seems like a perfectly normal person..except for that.

Everybody notices it but doesn't say anything.
I guess they make their opinion known by not eating the food she brings to potlucks....she usually makes sausage balls..don't they involve KNEADING ingredients WITH YOUR HANDS??...eww.

Anyway, I know that a lot of the time you "technically" don't actually touch yourself when wiping down there, but just knowing that you COULD accidentally touch yourself should make you want to wash your damn hands...

maybe it's just me

Nope, I wouldn't eat her food, either. If your local health department gives out flyers for the public about handwashing, I'd post one in your bathroom at work.

That's a great way to spread Hepatitis A. Most restrooms in our neck of the woods (especially in food establishments) have bilingual signs so people realize they need to do this.

If you do want to eat her food, I'd recommend getting a hepatitis A shot from that same health department.

The only time I don't wash my hands is sometimes... SOMEtimes in crowded airport ladies rooms where I'm convinced that I'd get germier by touching anything.

I keep disinfectant wipes in my purse and use them where the other women in the restroom can see me so that nobody will point at me later and call me a skank. I worry about such things.
