Germs, they're everywhere!
I read something yesterday and it got me thinking. Yeah, that happens to me every now and then. I was thinking how germaphobic people are getting any more.
I work in a restaurant. We have public bathrooms, that get cleaned, with sanitizer, several time a day, and again overnight by the cleaning crew. The health department in our county inspects us on a regular basis, and by regular, I mean monthly. And if we have any violations, they're here weekly. We try our damnedest to keep it monthly.
All of our cooks wear disposable gloves all the time when they are cooking. Our dish machine sanitizes everything it washes with a soap product, a bleach product and a rinse product. The servers and bus people wear gloves to wrap the silverwear in the napkins. Everything, and I do mean everything, that is opened and is perishable is date and time labeled and changed within the time period indicated (i.e. iced tea every 4 hours, milk 2 days, cut lemons every 5 hours, sanitizer in buckets every 4 hours, etc.)
Sorry, going off on most likely not the only tangent of this post.
I can bet you at least once a week, one of these germaphobic people who are so afraid to sit on a toilet seat, will squat over the bowl to do their business. Now ladies, squat if you want. Hold your kids over the toilet to pee if you want. But when you pee all over the seat, CLEAN IT UP!!!! It's YOUR pee!! Guess what? Urine is sterile when it leaves your body! It's more sanitary than you are! Look here, I checked. And guess who gets to clean up your piss that are too good to clean up? Most likely, me, because our bus people are too grossed out to do it, even though they are the ones who clean up the bathrooms after you pigs.
Would it kill you to use the trashcan for your paper towels?? One of these days, I'm going to catch the a toilet pisser in the ladies room and I'm going to say something to you. Pig.
New mothers, usually the early 30s models, are the worst offenders. They bring their own sanitizer with them and scrub the table, the chairs, the high chairs down like it's a surgical suite. They bring disposable placemats to stick to the table (even though each table and chair and high chair is cleaned, with sanitizer after each use). Though you should see the mess these wonder moms and their perfect children leave behind for us to clean up! Makes me want to go to their house, and pee all over their toilets.
On Tuesday, I had the couple who took it to the next level. They had me bring several styrofoam cups of water hot enough to brew tea so they could sanitize their precious bundle's eating utensils that they brought from home!!! Frankly, I'm not sure how they managed to have sex to produce this baby. Maybe it was done in a lab. (with no disrespect for anyone who had children via in vitro fertilization)
I feel sorry for these kids who are brought up by parents who are so afraid of germs that, when those kids go to day care and/or school, they pick up every bug that comes down the pike! They have no chance to build up immunities to these germs. And the parents are dumb-founded (good word for them... dumb hehehe) when their kids are always sick!!! AND they are most-likely the same ones who send their kids to school SICK!!
People, we had germs growing up. We survived. Let your kids get dirty. It most likely won't kill them.
OK, I gotta go. I have to wash my hands.
