It's really hard to respond to this within the forum guidelines, but, umm, have you ever heard of oral? Where does it go?

Actually, I regard my hands, relatively speaking, usually the dirtier of the two body parts,and certainly exposded a lot more pathogens. It would make more sense to wash your hands before using the john, instead of after. If you're concerned about drippage, urine is maybe the cleanest, most sterile thing your hands come in contact with all day.

Unless Number Two or menstruation is involved, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to think that before leavihg the bathroom is a time when one ought to wash hands.

If what you say is true, they why is it, in all 50 states I believe, the LAW that employees of various establishments including restaurants, grocery stores etc., REQUIRED to wash their hands BEFORE leaving a restroom and returning to work?

We have a supply of sanitizing hand wipes that we bring along on camping trips and carry in the car.

You're not very old, are you? When people age, their skin dries out and becomes less oily. It makes it very hard for older people to do things like turn pages, deal cards, count money, etc. They are not doing it to irritate you.
Thank you jtur-I myself am a fingerlicker for the very reasons you state.

Nothing wrong with giving your finger a little moisture, but be reasonable! Don't give your thumb a big, spitty swipe and proceed to hand the clerk the money.

My biggest pet peeve when dealing with guests/handling money are the women who pull cash directly out of their bras and hand it to me. Yes, people do this. They're usually very very overweight and sweaty, and the money is always damp.

Default My biggest peeve

My pet peeves are:

1. People who never use their turn signals to let you know where they are headed to. (so you look like an idiot, sitting there waiting for them to do something and then they decide to turn!! SHeeesh!! USE YOUR TURN SIGNALS, IDIOT!!).

2. People who don't put the shopping carts in those cart corrals.

3. (Some) women who you can tell hasn't had a haircut in a few years (YIKES!! at least get a trim or something. Damn!).

4. Lateness (I can understand maybe 15 minutes late, but more, c'mon! give me a break. Why did I ever wait?).

5. People in a shopping aisle and they see you want to come through, but they refuse to move....(Oh!! That pisses me off bad!).

6. Some women who sitll have those God awful long haired permed 1980's hairstyle (I know of a bartender, in the town I live in, who does and I just can't help talking about it sometimes. Sheesh!! lady, get with the today's style and get rid of that ugly ass perm! It's too old!).

I feel quite annoyed when I hear someone use the phrase "back in the day".

People at my building (work) who walk on the "wrong" side of the stairs.

Ugh, I am trying to go up the proper side and they are coming down towards me.

I specifically have my purse, keys etc. in the hand that is not holding the rail...so now in heels I need to scoot over for you?

Ugh.
