Wash Your Hands, Both Of Them
Today as I was in the restroom, three other guys walked in did their business and only one of them washed their hands afterward. Really, are we a third world country. Which by the way, India has been putting new plumbing in its rural areas in an effort to upgrade the entire country and cut down on disease. A year later after installing toilets, they found out the people aren’t using them.
Back to our story. The person who did attempt to wash their hands did so in a way that it really didn’t matter. With all the disease and now Ebola entering our country we need to make simple, proper hand washing something everyone does. If not, quit holding out your hand to be shook, the weapon in it may be more deadly than a gun.
Look at it this way, do you just run two seconds of water over your dishes and then put them back in the cupboard (No we let the dogs lick them out)? Why do we wash our hands with a quick dip under the faucet or in the case of two guys this morning, not al all. I wonder if they mine for gold after using the facility.
Now I’m not saying don’t get your hands dirty, that’s not the issue. The issue is, when you should take a moment and use proper hygiene. There is a big difference. 100% of the Norwalk virus wouldn’t happen on ships if people would just wash their hands, how simple is that.
So without using hand sanitizer, here is the simple way to wash your hands. Run water over them while using soap for 10 seconds. Then rinse for another 10-15. Total time to properly wash your hands 25 seconds.
If not for yourselves, teach your children, they are the future and if you’ve given up on yours at least let them have a chance. As for the people who didn’t wash their hands, I won’t say who they are, but you can be danged sure I won’t be shaking hands with them.
