This is actually hilarious. At work, I get teased for always cleaning my keyboard, because I share with others who feel it necessary to sit in my seat before I get to work.

I've worked in the computer biz for a while...and I've seen some pretty nasty keyboards...to the point where we (the techs) would rather remote into your computer from ours, than walk to your desk and touch or sit in your filthy area! Hygeine people!!!

Heh...what about the monitor screens with the specs of spit. I'll sit at someone's PC to work on it, notice the "spit" on the monitor, then look at the keyboard at an angle so the reflection of the light hit's it just right. And bam! Specs of spit on the keyboard!

When I did tech support in office settings, I used to hate working on keyboards belonging to coworkers who were chronic users of hand lotion. The lotion gets all over the keys and all kinds of grime sticks to it.
