I can’t possibly be the only one who has this. Am I? You know the samples in the grocery store that are just sitting there with no attendee? I’ve personally seen people put their hand in and handle several pieces before pulling out the one they want to try. Ok, ask yourself, where have those hands been? Not only that, people sneeze and cough into those things. Yuck! Seriously, those samples have to be the germiest (yes, it’s a word) pieces of food EVER! Why would anybody want to test his or her immune system to that extreme?
Another one that gets me is the candy bins in the middle of the mall. They are eye level to children and you can bet that every 5 year old that can reach it, has stuck their hands into those bins. They love to roll their hands around in there feeling all of the candy. EWWWWWW! I have 2 kids and I know exactly where those little hands have been. Trust me, you don’t want those germs in your mouth.
Speaking of the mall, what about the guys in the food court that block your way trying to get you to take a sample? I see people grabbing these all the time but I also see them picking one up, looking at it, breathing on it, putting it back and getting another. Or perhaps offer it to someone who takes it but then decides they don’t want it and put it back. It’s changed hands twice at that point and still gets put back up for the offering. Uhhhh, no thanks!
I’m not a germophobe! Really! I’m ok with a little dirt but it makes my stomach hurt at the mere thought of putting any of that food into my mouth. I am not a fan of what I like to call “the quick weight loss diet”. Need I say more?
