What really cracks me up is every company has this glove policy, so people put them on and think they are sanitary as long as they are wearing them.
Hello? What happens the first moment they put them on? They touch something on their person..... clothes, hair, face and then go about their business.
Whenever I was the boss, I insisted on all employees washing hands as often as possible with the hottest water possible and rinse thoroughly before
you put on gloves, then if you contaminate the gloves wash your hand with them on, the same way. Unless, what you contaminated them with is not
washable. Whether or not you handle food, everything you touch has germs on it everywhere in a restaurant and home or public places. Think about this,
when you go to the bathroom what do you do first? Go the bathroom right? Then after you go what do you touch? The faucet right? Then after you wash
what do you touch? The faucet again to turn it off. So you just contaminated your hands again, then you got paper towels then you opened the door,
then you sat at a table if you were a customer, then you touched every thing at that table, etc. If you were a server or a cook you contaminated
everything you touched, it is an endless cycle of germs and this is why people get sick. Fortunately, the body has dealt with most of the germs and
built a resistance for most, this is why younger children and older adults would be affected the most, their immune systems are weakened or they have
not built up the resistance needed to fight those germs. This applies to food born illnesses, also. For the record, I wash my hands before I go to the
bathroom and after, then I use the paper towel to turn off the faucet, then if needed I use the paper towel to open the door. I never handle any doors
with my hands, I always find a way to not touch it. I don't use silverware at restaurants, I use plastic ware. I ask for plastic cups. I don't get
any fruits in my drinks, always on the side if I want them, not only at restaurants but bars too. I will make another post soon detailing my OCD if
that is what you want to call it. I call it being careful. The fact is, it works for me, I don't get sick often, unless I let my guard down at a
restaurant and trust them to not serve me spoiled food.
