I just don’t understand


Have you experienced a smell that was so foul you felt like you could see it? It is as if there is a visible Pepe Le Pew fog is lingering…and that, my friends is what the DART was like this morning! In all seriousness, it burned my nose.

Furthermore… I don’t care if the entire medical community and every doctor on the planet endorses coughing into the crook of your arm instead of covering your mouth with your hand. This is by far the most asinine hygiene habit EVER. Don’t worry, as with all things, I have reasons:

  1. Have you EVER in your life seen someone break out the Germ-x to thoroughly de-germ their freshly coughed on elbow??????? (Bonus points for all who break out the Germ-X after covering their cough with their hands!)
  2. Do you not wash your hands a lot more than you do laundry?
  3. Do you often find yourself scrubbing up to the elbows pre-op style to get the plague off of your arm?
  4. When someone bumps up against you in the elevator- it is their germified, coughed-on shirt sleeve that bumps up against you.

Here is a copy of the flyer from the CDC… cough into your elbow and wash your hands… what the hell???????

cdc eww


Germaphobes unite! lol I can’t be the only one that is horrified by this!



About Andi

This chapter in my life is called, "Managing Millennials". People always say that I have a way with words, and that I am great at managing Millennials. The secret truth to my success? I worked at a public high school. I was an educator that specialized in behavior and building relationships. So what happens when the sweet little kids that inspired me to sponsor clubs, put in extra hours and spend my own money all enter the workforce???? They drive you crazy! I can help! I understand why these participation trophy earning young adults are driving you crazy in the work place. I understand that the fact that we are inheriting a technology talented pool of workers that sit at their desk with ear buds in their ears and celebrate medicocricy in the name if effort. I understand that you are not used to emojis and GIFs in business communication, and that you don't want to stand around on a break discussing memes, vines, YouTube epic fail videos and what you binge watched on Netflix. I once told my students that they would learn to follow my rules because I refused to be miserable for the next 1488 hours of my life. Ninety percent of the time... They did. Now, I tell my millennials that same thing, "Welcome to the workforce. There are policies and procedures in place that will help us get along for the next 2080 hours of our lives." Welcome to my blog, "Let The Managers Say Amen."
