And then they do the polite thing and cover their mouth when they cough or sneeze, and go right back to handling food.

It is possible if they had health insurance and sick leave, they might actually rather stay home in bed, take medicine and get well....not many people enjoy working when they are sick.

I am sure most people would rather stay home. But, they also would like to keep a roof over head and food in the families bellies.

Those are my peeves.

Of course I am annoyed by some others driving skills but in comparison? I try to breathe and be charitable and avoid them.

You, my deah elston, seem to be a wonderful forgiving man. I guess the look of Santa is the only way you are like him.
