The other day I was at the hardware store and a woman with very long manicured nails was helping her husband load soil into the back of their SUV when one of the bags apparently had a small hole and some of the soil spilled out on to her hands. She dusted it off, then examined her nails, and began to lick each nail individually to clean them off. I could not believe what I was seeing. Then later that day we went to a store and got some nice glass containers for my wife's terrariums, and the cashier licked her finger everytime she got a bag, or a sheet of wrapping paper to wrap the items. She had a cold. Needless to say, when we got home, we sprayed the bags with Lysol, and then each item in the bag. Then whiped off each glass item with anti bacterial wipes. And people wonder why they get sick. Try practicing proper hygiene people. Gross!
