I’ve always been a little bit of a germaphobe. Don’t get me wrong, I love dirt and animals, but people don’t realize how unsanitary the world is. To the people that don’t wash your hands after going to the bathroom, I hope it’s ok with you that the chef preparing your food doesn’t either. If you are part of the minority that wash their hands after using the restroom, you should take the next step into washing hands before eating. Consider the money you just touched while paying for the handheld burrito you’re eating. That dollar is what, seven years old? Imagine the number of hands the money you’ve touched must have passed through before reaching yours. You may have showered this morning, but the homeless man who used the same dollar to buy booze the other day probably did not. The money you handle carries a ton of bacteria and is often dirtier than a public toilet seat. Point is, wash your hands, preferably with soap.
