EEEeeewwww....

Tonight I went grocery shopping. I discovered, much to my dismay, after it was too late, that the cart I selected had some mysterious gross sticky stuff on the handle. Ew. Ewww. I don't know what that was, and I probably don't want to know.
When I got back outside, I noticed that some fresh snow had fallen, so I reached over and rinsed my hands off in the snow. I'm sure it didn't kill ALL the little bacterial creatures, but at least my hand wasn't sticky any more.

So did you get some Garden Salsa Sun Chips at the store?

I think shopping cart handles and mens room door handles are the two grossest germiest places ever.
I mean, think of the revolving door of nasty hands that touched that cart handle before you: the overnight stock guy that doesn't wash his hands after visiting the loo, the kid with the runny nose who clutched the handle with his boogery fingers, the mom with pinkeye who just came from the nursery school and who doesn't know she's a carrier, the little old man who just had an explosive bowel movement in the dirty bathroom and got runny fecal matter on his hands and didn't use soap at the sink, the cart attendant who scratches himself down there when he thinks no one is watching... do I need to go on?

It sometimes cracked me up at Target when self-proclaimed "germ freaks" would wipe off the phone in their office ten times a day with Lysol wipes, but thought nothing of grabbing a shopping cart handle with their bare hands...

Now that I've sufficiently grossed you out, I return you to your regularly scheduled Jannaverse...

Morgen: Ew. Thanks for the information... I think. :)

Mimi: I'm beginning to agree!

Bee: At least money isn't usually sticky. :)

Turnbaby: I know. I'm not a neat freak either, but I sure would have liked to wipe that handle off.

Stak: No, trust me, the sticky handle was far grosser than any gimpy wheel could ever be!
