Are You A Germ-A-Phobe?
If you avoid shaking hands or, worse yet, flushing a public toilet with your fingers, you might just be a germ-a-phobe.
[And if you watch Glee like I do, Emma — with her adorably color-coordinated outfits! — is a perfect example.]
Germ-a-phobes have always filled our workplaces, but their ranks are growing with concerns about H1N1. Gone are the communal candy dishes; here are the bottles of hand sanitizer.
Anyway, I highly recommend checking out today’s article from the Portland Tribune for a deeper look at germs and the people who hate them. One interesting tidbit? Office desks are 400 times germier than toilet seats.
And now that you’ve read that, I recommend getting busy with some keyboard sanitizing wipes and flu safety tips. Ick.

I am loving Glee. Emma is totally the cutest and most stylish.
BTW, who in their right mind would flush a public toilet with their hand?!?!
I just lathered on the hand sanitizer thanks to this post. But that doesn't mean I don't miss communal candy dishes (I do).
Hand sanitizer + communual candy = really gross tasting candy.
Reminds me of the days when my parents made me put that "no biting your fingernails" stuff on my hands…and then I went and ate a sandwich. Yuck.
I'm not afraid to admit that I have sprayed my keyboard with sanitizer multiple times. I also carry hand sanitizer with me at all times, and REFUSE to touch anything on public transit.
Basically, I'm Emma without the awesome outfits.
Yikes! Reading about germs has literally driven me to sterilize my desk and surrounding area. Steering wheels are also far germier than toilet seats. Yech! http://bit.ly/6oL4d
