Yea, I'm sure the 5 seconds you saved really helped out your score.

Talk about over-reaction.
You know how dead or sick you'd be if you REALLY knew how dirty people's habits can be?
Exactly the same as you are now. You are alive and well today because your body is strong enough to resist all the germs you're supposedly getting on a daily basis. (For now.)

When I was in college I read an article that indicated that most people end up with more bacteria on their hands after washing than before (unless you wash like surgons with very hot water and antibiotic soap and scrub hard with a brush from the elbows down and especially hard under the fingernails).
And then another article indicated that you will likely get more germs from touching the bathroom door handle on the way out than if you had not washed. So when you are leaving they suggested that you take a papertowel to open the door with.

I think it's true that you get a lot of germs from touching the door going out. I like places where there is no door, it's propped open, or uou can open it with your elbow or by leaning on it.
I worked for a boss that would only wash his hands outside the restroom at a shop sink because he did not want to get his hands dirty touching the doorknob after washing.
Realistically, I think the health danger from a dirty doorknob is fairly small, since most germs do not live long at room temperature. Still, I think it would be better if we could have arrangements where we don't have to handle doors and stuff after washing our hands, especially before eating.

that's disgusting! there is no excuse for not washing your hands. honestly though, I had a friend who was working on her PhD and did a research project on the cleanliness of bathrooms (specifically toilet lids) vs. the cleanliness of coke cans from vaious coke machines. The bathrooms were much cleaner, and had far fewer deadly bacteria! Drink up everyone!

I have always thought they should put a trash can just outside the bathroom door so you can put your towel in it after you use it to open the door.
And thanks alot for the info about the coke cans. Kimi suggested putting a container of bleach in your mailbox to kill any anthrax on your mail, maybe that would work it a coke machine as well.
