I'm just glad most supermarkets have these at the door.

You wouldn't get sick all the time if you didn't constantly use those damn wipes.  You don't build immunity by living in a sterile bubble.

But without the wipes and hand sanatiser how are we going to make the next batch of drug resistant impossable to kill flesh earthing bacteria ?

Overuse use of disinfectants may be bad for our immune systems, but I don't think they really have any relation to antibiotic resistant bacteria.

It would be like you trying to build an immunity to being dipped in lava.

Read the bottles over the past few years they have been haveing to increase the active ingredients to make them affective. Purell had 62% alcohol the new purell advanced is at 68% to keep the same 99.9% kill rate.
Wet wipes(target store brand)have gone form .13 benzalkonium chloride to .3% between when I got my nipples priced and got a package to wipe the ring with last year and when I had I gauged out this month and had to buy a new container of them.


Well, how much were they?

I had an idiot coworker who told me she never washed her produced "because I buy organic, so it doesn't need washing."


That is why I don't wipe my man-chicken before I put it in your mouth after slamming it savagely up your backside.  It's organic.

Are you joking?

Not at all. She also peels my grapefruit, even removing the bitter segment walls. I have never asked her to do this. Think is a Chinese thing.


Peeling the grapes just seems utterly time-consuming. I only do it with my M&Ms.

Mabey it did not kill you. Mabey it was the best steak I ever ate. But if I found out that the steak had spent 2 days marinating in loogies and pee I still would not have seconds.


Honestly, the way you misspell maybe is way more upsetting.

So, you ever go into a grocery store & see the floors shining like a mirror?

I used to have a job making the floors look like that. We had about 100 employees. Did many 100's of stores. Lots of different companies. Going into grocery stores in the middle of the night, you notice a couple things.

Every single one pulls all their stock out of the back room (including the frozen & refrigerated stuff) at the beginning of the stockers shift. To sit in the middle of the aisle while they finish unloading the rest of the pallets, then start stocking it. Usually sits there 4-6 hours before it gets put into the freezer.

Delis & meat depts hose down their floors every night. The water from the floor splashes all over everything in the room. Counters, slicers, scales, everything.

We use a high speed buffer to get that nice finish. They make a cloud of dust (Old wax. dust & dirt). All over the produce. And all over those bags of "artisan" bread that have the end open so the loaves can breathe.

Decided I needed benefits, so I got a job as a school custodian. My experience + 4 hours of training. About the 3rd thing the trainer shows me is they use the same scrub brush /  sanitizer bucket to clean the toilets, the urinals, the sinks & the drinking fountains. I won't. I use a spray bottle of sanitizer & paper towels on the sinks & drinking fountains. See all my co-workers do it the "official" way, all the time...

The My Little Pony Killer: The grocery store is okay with this practice.


When I worked in a grocery store we used carts to drag the trash bags around, although we had a special rusted out cart for this task. Meanwhile, the carts in circulation are constantly getting food residue on them, and you don't see those flying through the cart wash at any point in their life. They will get cosmetically wiped if a kid vomits on them.

Remember, anyone can use your store, even smelly homeless people. Sometimes "normal" people will discard some fresh feces on the floor of the restroom, then track it around the store. Old people, who are probably washing at best 50% of the skin on their hands after taking a dump are handling your fresh fruit and veggies. As a cashier and bagger, I got a great look at your grandma and grandpa's dirty finger nails as they scrabbled for the courtesy pen to fill out their checks.

First thing I do when I come home from the market?  Wash my hands.


By the time you wash your hands you have already transferred that poop to your keys, car, home doorhandles, and sink taps.
You can not escape the poop.

Dumpster runs?  You use a grocery cart to take your trash to the dumpster?

Yep.  I've worked at three different supermarkets when I was going to school and EVERY ONE of them did this same thing.

Hell one supermarket used to dump their deli slop and grease this way.  And Buffy never bothered to wipe the card down afterwards.  At the end of the night you could always tell which cart in the cart corral was hers.


I must've worked at the exception. I was at a supermarket deli on Long Island, and, sure, we used a shopping cart to haul around our slop... but it was the same filthy, grungy, festering slop-covered shopping cart every day, dammit. And holy carp, was that thing scary to behold. But we never put it back into the general population.

Also, #3 on that list can vary in terribleness. At my store, we frequently cooked with the meat and cheese ends/leftovers/stuff that didn't sell, and our manager was awesome but was a hardass about keeping the deli clean.

I'm willing to accept we were the outlier, and things could've gone to shiat since I left and/or before I was ever there.
