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:
- 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!)
- Do you not wash your hands a lot more than you do laundry?
- Do you often find yourself scrubbing up to the elbows pre-op style to get the plague off of your arm?
- 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???????
Germaphobes unite! lol I can’t be the only one that is horrified by this!
