Wash Your Hands PLEASE!

A friend sent me this short article:

The “hand washing police” say more guys need to step up to the sink.

The researchers who spy on people in public restrooms report one-third of men didn’t bother to wash after using the bathroom, compared with 12 percent of women.

The latest study was based on observations last month of more than 6,000 people in four cities.

Atlanta’s Turner Field baseball stadium was the worst, as only 57 percent of guys there washed up. At Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium and Museum of Science and Industry, 81 percent of men and women combined washed their hands, compared to 79 percent in New York’s Penn and Grand Central train stations.

Experts recommend people carry sanitizer gels and wipes — just in case they can’t wash.

I see this happen regularly and it really annoys me! Especially when you’re in a restaurant and the people working there do it!

    In complete agreement with you on that.. It is highly unhygienic & uncivilized to say the least! Though I’m not sure I like the idea of being spied on in the bathroom .. hmmm..
