I will admit I don't like shaking hands and when I'm in a
situation where I must I wash my hands as soon as posible.

I have far too many times see people use the bathroom and not wash their
hands and have seen them sneeze into their hands than shake hands.

Yes maybe I'm a little OCD but I tend to not get sick very often.

I carry a little bottle of hand sanitizer for just such an occasion.

Every time I go to see my oncologist the receptionist either has allergies or is sick with a cold or something worse. As if on cue she will usually wipe her nose with the back of her hand then hand me a pen to check in with. I now carry a pen where ever I go just to avoid other people's cooties.

2-3 knives
pepper spray/mace/wasp spray/oven cleaner
flashlight
paracord
pen (2 is 1, etc.)

People are fucking nasty, I don't blame you one bit.

My peeves:
Not covering coughs/sneezes (or half ass covering them with their hand a foot in front of their face)
Licking their fingers to separate paper. This is vile, disgusting behavior.
Not washing hands after using restroom
Washing hands but grabbing the door handle with bare hands (WTF did you not just see the guy in front of you)

Apparently my desire to practice good hygiene makes me a germophobe. I've stopped protesting and have decided to embrace the label.
Link Posted: 10/5/2014 5:27:32 PM EST
The company I work for sells Purell hand sanitizer. We (occasionally) get surplus products, which through customer errors cannot be sold but are 100% good to go.

So I always have hand sanitizer at my desk, and I use that shit.



Of course, a lot of the really nasty stuff (plus the good ole flu) are air born.

I fucking hate when cashiers do that. What kind of savage puts bodily fluids on everything they touch.

They all claim that germs are everywhere and it builds your immune system. Yeah, no shit... but lets see you lick your fingers after touching an ebola victim. It will boost your immune system won't it?

I have a packet of hand sanitizer wipes stashed in my truck, briefcase, backpack, luggage, etc. I will shake someone's hand, but always feel the need to disinfect afterwards. I tour a lot of construction sites and meet a lot of people which I enjoy. Although, I always get a little sleeved out when I meet someone and they take off their glove to shake my hand. I know it's polite, but I'd honestly rather shake someone's dirty gloved hand then a damp sweaty hand fresh out of a glove.

I can't remember the last time I shook someone's hand or got sick. When I was working, all my co-workers were always shaking my hand, I hated it. I don't know what that hand was doing 5 minutes ago. But then again, I had no problem putting my tongue in some nasty places.

Don't touch door handles/knobs with your bare hands either. Pull your shirt down over your hands if you have something long sleeved, if not use a paper towel or wash you hands right afterwards before you bring your hands to your face.

And you're a grown ass man? I can't believe some men actually carry around hand sanitizer. People pee on the seat so you put toilet paper down? You pussy. What do you do when only a port-a-potty is available? I'm sure those are way too dirty for you.

316,100,000 people in the US, 1 of which has Ebola. I'm OK with those odds.

And It's pretty well documented science that exposure to germs and bacteria make our immune systems stronger in the long run.

False. Recurrent epidemics are one of several factors that held humanity back. Most of those diseases were/are person-to-person transmission either through direct contact with poor personal hygiene being a large contributor (as opposed to vector-borne diseases such as malaria).

Even if the disease doesn't kill you, there is the potential for lifelong, crippling sequelae.

First of all, we're talking about handshakes, not bathing in raw sewage for your entire life.

As far as recurrent epidemics, I read a study that claimed the Black Plague had a net positive affect on humanity as a whole. Those left alive were stronger than the pre-plague population, they had more resources, less competition, and better economic standard as well. Their children had a much higher life expectancy due to increased resources and decreased competition. It "culled the herd" for lack of a better term.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consequences_of_the_Black_Death#Social.2C_environmental.2C_and_economic_effects

Now that's not an argument I'd make, I'm just pointing it out cause it's relevant to the conversation.

If there's visible shit or piss I'll use the other stall. But I've never put toilet paper down. Plenty of times I've sat down and my ass cheeks got wet, I didnt run home and Lysol my ass.

I carry disinfecting wipes to wipe everything I or my clothes might touch. They are only a buck at WM for a travel pack.

After I have wiped everything, including the toilet seat, I put toilet paper down.

If they had ass Lysol I would buy it and use it.

Neckties are good. Like a ready-made nooses for sheeple who are too stupid to use clip-ons. Clip-ons are the mark of a real man.
But handshakes should be replaced with vigorous shin kicking. Separates the men from the people with dry twig leg bones.

I'm the first to admit it sounds like OCD. I've spent days recovering from the shits or a cold or a whatever from being exposed to something that has been somewhere. It sucks. Factor in the extensive travel, airport bathrooms, public anything, at the end of the day I'm a walking Petri dish. Trust me, I've been dirty and done my time in plenty of god awful places. It's likely the reason my guts are in a perpetual state of unease.

So yeah, really, I don't enjoy shaking a filthy fucking hand that hasn't been washed since leaving a portal john that's been in the sun for a week used by 10-20 men. Many of which don't speak English and have god knows what else crawling through them.

Shaking hands isn't the problem.

The problem is what you do with your hands afterwards.

You could shake hands with a hundred people infected with all manner of communicable diseases - without becoming infected yourself - as long as you (1.) kept your hands away from your face, and (2.) washed them before handling anything else that comes in contact with your face.

Hand-to-face contact is the problem.
