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.
