Wash Your Hands!

Recommended Posts

Roommates use the bathroom and don't wash their hands. Then, the head to the kitchen and rummage through the fridge or whatever... Ugh. Or, they sort of quickly rinse their hands, THEN flush, THEN open the bathroom door and head to the kitchen. Order fail.

 

I'm not much of a germ freak, but that's just nasty. Worse: the friends they invite over don't wash their hands either. Gag.

 

Do Christians not believe in germs? What happened to that cleanliness-godliness connection? We get fruit flies from the leftovers and half-full cups of coffee they leave out for days, too.

 

And what's with leaving dishes in the sink when there is a perfectly good dishwasher less than 6 inches away? You were halfway there! Just turn the water on, rinse, and set it in the dishwasher! WTF???

 

 

 

...That's it. That's all I got.

The belief that germs cause people to get sick is just part of the propaganda put out by the health care and pharmaceutical industries so that you spend money on soap and medications. After all, "germ theory" is just a theory.

In all seriousness, my wife has told me that her father, who is an Assemblies of God pastor, doesn't belief that colds and flu are carried by germs, either. Maybe he thinks it's just demons. I don't know.

 

Even if Christians believe in germs, I think they believe that they're under God's umbrella of protection, and even if they do get sick, they can just pray to God to get better. Most of the ones I've known seem to have an "I don't give a fuck" attitude about it.

I feel your pain, Inorbit, and there's just me here. I needed more liquid soap the other day, so I got dad to take me to the Supermarket, as I'm still not driving after the operation (doctor said I could, but I have one section of the wound that keeps splitting a bit, and the drivers are so terrible around here, I'm concerned about having an accident. Until this particular section of the wound manages to stay together, I'm not driving). Anyway, instead of buying a new 250ml pump bottle, I decided to get a 750ml refill, as it was not much more and I could refill the pump. That after noon, when I used the soap, it fell behind the washing machine :( So until I can get someone over to get that damn soap pump for me, I'm stuck with just the bar of soap, which is forever falling in the sink and getting all scabby and yucky because the sink wasn't set up particularly well and making a mess everywhere.

 

I miss my soap pump :( Hopefully I can get dad around tomorrow to get it out for me.

Hey! They're just being godly. Jesus didn't wash his hands, either.

 

P.S. Have you ever heard that old saying "Cleanliness is next to godliness." Trouble is, godliness is either next to impossible or next to insanity, so it's all a wash.

Leaving the dirty dishes in the sink RIGHT NEXT TO THE DISHWASHER is one of my pet peeves too. I always make sure to empty the dishwasher as soon as it's ready just so there's no excuse in leaving the dirty dishes in the sink. And no, it doesn't help......

I hate that. Especially if someone puts water in them and lets them soak. I hate putting my hands in it and I go out of my way to make sure the dishwasher is empty so they don't have to do it. I can deal with an unmade bed (though my wife can't) but a messy kitchen drives me up the wall. Fortunately my wife is a clean freak and I'm usually the one getting yelled at for being messy.

Oh, me too! I can't handle cold dishwater!! It's like I can almost SEE the germs!!

 

And, as someone who doesn't even have a dishwasher, that's so fucking lazy to leave dishes out!! I think I should confiscate someone's dishwasher for improper use. I'd LOVE to have a dishwasher!

You can count me among the people that don't understand letting dishes pile up in the sink when the dishwasher has room for them.

 

This is one of the things that my wife does that drives me batshit insane, because she has acknowledged that her way of doing it sucks, but she still just keeps doing it that way. The dishes pile up in the sink until there isn't even enough room to rinse anything else out. Then they get put in the dishwasher. Of course, that means the dishwasher has to be run right away, since it's now full, which means that dishes pile up in the sink again until the dishwasher is emptied again.

 

My way works much better. Put dishes in the dishwasher as you go. This leaves room in the sink to pre-rinse dishes that will go in the the dishwasher, as well as wash any pots and pans that get used throughout the day. Pull the dishes out of the dishwasher as soon as the dishes are dry, and then you can put dishes in the dishwasher as you go, which leaves room in the sink to pre-rinse dishes that will go in the dishwasher.

 

If anything will lead to a divorce in my house, it will be this. Well, that and the fact that my wife is a borderline hoarder, but I'll leave that for another thread.

I was at a fast food place the other day, the urinal was out of order, the commode was covered in feces, and there was no soap in the soap dispenser. sad.png

 

I worked for years at a government office. That sounds like the job our cleaning crew did. I'd come into work many days and the restrooms would be vile, obvious they didn't clean them. I made inquiries, apparently it was an older couple with 'disabilities' they had coming in via some program. It hit the fan one day when they apparently found a tissue on the floor by my desk and left me a note chewing me out for 'throwing tissue on the floor'. I left them a note telling them they left the building looking like a Russian troopship so get outta my face. Well they were 'hurt' and filed a complaint on me. It didn't get very far- they were replaced. I think they didn't want to touch anything 'dirty'. Fine but get another job if that's your thing.

 

At the same job there was a guy who NEVER washed his hands after a trip to the restroom. Countless times I saw him exit a stall then go right back out into the office. Once he did so then I saw him digging his hand into a sack of chips someone brought in. I just don't understand people. Do they think they don't have germs? Are they lazy, what?

I want one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Ivory-Refrigerator-Door-Lock-White/dp/B002WCN13W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1347556184&sr=8-2&keywords=refrigerator+lock and a mini-fridge.

 

I have grandparents that routinely have shit on their hands. My dad told a story one day about how he bit into a ham sandwich he made and found something brown and crunchy. I haven't made a sandwich from anything in our family fridge since. I've also watched my grandma try to make a sandwich and eat slices of turkey or ham by sticking her WHOLE HAND IN HER MOUTH, then sticking her hand BACK in the bag for another piece. I could eat and watch an autopsy live, but I cannot STAND the thought of my sandwich meat being covered in dried poop and old people slobber!

 

Ramen is the only food I can trust anymore...bless you hot water, bless you.

Might have to get this little book from Soapy, one of My favourite local superheroes (and world-class Infectious Diseases specialist). Seriously, if they can't grok a Green Eggs and Ham parody, I'd start subdividing the living quarters to create a Level 4 safe zone for you and your stuff.
