Are you a germaphobe?

Do you need to use Purell (etc.) to sanitize your hands?  I don't use that stuff much.  I do wipe the handle of the shopping cart at the grocery store.  I fall somewhere between "what doesn't kill you will make you stronger" and  "I don't want that stuff on my hands"    

We had a guy here that came in early to sanitize his keyboard and desk phone before he started work each day.  And one time I saw his reaction after someone else used his phone - 1/2 a can of Lysol.

And how about the 5 10 15 30 second rule......

I wipe the cart handle about 1/10 of the time, maybe.  Sanitizer isn't really a thing for me, unless I am somewhere where I can not wash, have touched really dirty things, and need to eat.  

We did buy a very small container of bleach for the camper, so I can put a dabble on the sponge every day or so. 

It is our goal to stay safe, but not be phobic about it.

I am.  I eat at my desk.  Whenever I have papers on my desk that have been in our lab, I Purell and sanitize my desk, mouse, keyboard, pen...  Don't forget where I work, it's pretty gross here.

I can understand that.  We had that conversation a couple weeks ago remember.  An alternative you could take your lunch down to the cafeteria and share the germs of others from all over the hospital.

I don't touch anything in a doctor' office/waiting room. Diseased people hang out there. I'll eat garden dirt no problem.

I know where they have been, I'm good. :D

I bet he wears pants to stop his genitals from touching anything there.

Not even close.  I'll put it this way, when it comes to food I don't follow the 'five second rule', I go with my own ' five person rule'.  I really don't care how long it has been on the ground, but it is all about how many people are gong to see me pick it up and eat it.  I live with the "You eat a bucket of dirt before you die" mantra.

But I always wash after using the bathroom. Always.
