I think it tastes worse that way, honestly.

Germs are good for you.

Vaccines only work because they mimic the natural process of exposing yourself to low amounts of germs at all times, training your immune system on how to recognize and repel specific invaders. Touching that doorknob keeps you healthy.

There is certainly a balance to be had.  You do want to wash your hands several times a day, but at the same time you don't want to flush public toilets with your foot or sanitize shopping cart handles at the grocery store and such.

You don't want to actively avoid germs, just practice good hygeine.

Still no cure for the busboy who wipes the seats and then the table top with the same dirty rag.

ZOMG! Did you know that ______________ is/are actually dirtier than a toilet seat?!?1!?

I used to like Modelo in the bottle with a lime. I once watched the cocktail waitress use her lee press-ons to poke the lime into the bottle. NEVER again! No fruit ! I can barely even drink Modela any more.

When i turned 18 i bussed at a fancy Italian restaurant. One night some guy took one bite out of his huge porterhouse and left the rest. I snatched it while clearing the table and placed it in the front pocket of my white apron. Every fifteen minutes or so i would walk in the back and take a bite of said steak, put it back and return to working despite the fact that i had a huge blood stain on my apron. There is little doubt that i was getting meat juices all the clean silver wear i was setting the tables with.

/end CSB
//its the hostess's job to sanitize the menues and many do. Be more concerned about stoner busboys.

I almost never eat out. I like making food myself from scratch so I know how much salt, etc is in everything and I know it's healthy. But on the rare occasions I eat out all I can order is pancakes. I just really like pancakes.

Just start making toilet seats out of restaurant menus and then make new menus out of the toilet seat materials. Problem solved.

ancient roman proverb: "be not too dirty, nor too clean."

or so ive heard.

this is why we have immune systems

Some chick at work has started using a paper towel to open the bathroom door when she's leaving. That's well and good except she leaves the damn thing there afterwards, just hanging out on the handle.

Just use your naked hands, imbecile. Regrettably for the world, you'll survive.
 
2014-03-29 12:40:04 AM  
The menus don't skeeze me out but the cockroaches that exist in every restaurant do.
If you think your favorite restaurant doesn't have them then I have a bridge in Airizona or something to sell you.
 
2014-03-29 12:42:29 AM  
and how about those doctor's office magazines?

I was eating at a certain well-known american restaurant and was honestly a bit grossed out by the condition of the menus. You could just see smears all over it. Ick.
 
2014-03-29 01:05:08 AM  
No, you're supposed to wipe the menu on a toilet seat before you choose your food.
 
2014-03-29 01:10:57 AM  
that's why those disposable toilet seat covers are silly.  How many things does your ass touch in a day and how often do you use your ass to put things in your mouth?  On second thought, don't answer that.
 
2014-03-29 01:16:44 AM  
Not this shiat again. Every farking year we get a farking story about this.

EVERYTHING is basically dirtier than a toilet seat because toilet seats are (hopefully) cleaned often. Water fountains, your mothers coont, car seats are all dirtier than a toilet seat. OKAY!? Stop with this shiat.

/Please
//Thank you, sir or madam.

Your smart phone is covered in fecal bacteria.  Stop worrying about it.

Plant Rights Activist: that's why those disposable toilet seat covers are silly.


That, and unless the toilet seat is visibly covered in bodily fluids AND you have open sores on your thighs/ass...you have zero chance of catching anything from a toilet seat.

Maybe ringworm. Athlete's ass. I suppose it's possible, but doesn't seem very likely.

As someone who's general reaction to people obsessed with sanitizing everything is to take coins out of my pocket and lick them, I laugh at the idea of dirty menus.

this is why i stick my finger in my ass before bed, and then rub my eyes. not only is the smell pleasant to sleep too, but my eyes are always nice and red. uh.,..pinkish.

I just take the menu to rhe bathroom with me, there is never any good reading material in there

I've never read an article about how many wipes you can get with a cleaning rag and antibacterial solution before it's no longer effective. Every time I see a restaurant employee cleaning something with a rag I get the feeling that they're just spreading germs around.

Same here.
I have also always wondered about those old-style mops as well, grabbing it out of the bucket it's been sitting in, meticulously going over the floor area, then sticking it back in the water until the next spill or whatever needs attention.

I am not a germaphobe by any stretch of the imagination -- I've just always found that whole process to be kind of silly to me.

Are you under the impression that the seat is somehow "dirtier" than the table? Because it's not. The dirtiest spots are where people put their hands.

After I order and the menu is taken away from me, I wash my hands.

You might have undiagnosed mental issues if that's normal to you.

And then the servers, who have been playing grab ass with eachother and playing on their fecal bacteria phones handle your food and plates, lol. Seriously - you can't escape germs at a restaurant. But don't worry, our mouths are already teaming with germs (unless you've just killed them all with Scope. Or vodka).

This.

Exposure to germs is what keeps your immune system healthy. These people who go around spraying everything with Lysol or bleach are doing their bodies more harm than good.

I have some slight paranoia.
I really hate the laminated menu's.  I think restaurants expect germs to slide off.

No comments that the "article" was effectively an ad?
 
2014-03-29 01:36:45 PM  
and money is dirtier than everything else known to man, yet that's the one thing most of us touch on a daily basis creating some sort of infinite germ loop cycle.

Why?  For licking coins?  Nope.  I'm not saying that licking coins should be considered healthy or something you should do as a habit, but there's no reason to call occasionally doing something harmless a mental issue.

For enjoying grossing people out?  Ok, you might have a point there.

Ask your doctor to remove his tie and wash his hands afterwards.
