I'm a f*cking foodservice professional, and oddly enough, I've had UV dye put on my hands at various times to simulate the mess that can transfer onto your hands, and have passed with flying colors.

The rest of the public: there's a reason that I throw ANY damn plate you send back to us into the garbage and just cook you something new: y'all are some dirty motherf*ckers, and I don't trust a damn thing you touch to get anywhere NEAR my line. Seriously. I have better things to do than pass hepatitis or other sh*t on to other customers. If it hits the table and comes back to us, we just start fresh, because I don't trust any of you.

Just gotta say, thank you for that. Not food service, but used to handle people's cellphones for a living. Nobody understood why I washed my hands 40 times a day. I'm in agreement. People are disgusting.

I had a serious turnaround about handwashing after owning a restaurant. Used to be that I'd piss and shiat, no hand wash required. But after being in the restaurant biz I'm now paranoid about hand hygiene. Wash my hands EVERY TIME I use the can. If I'm in a public toilet I use the towel that I've just dried my hands with to open the door and if there's only air drying I use my shirt and the smallest amount of surface area possible.

One of my favorite restaurant stories was when CA passed some bill that made wearing gloves mandatory for all food service workers. Talk about unclear on the concept. Not only would it produce vast amounts of waste gloves (which are also freakin' expensive) but it would probably result in worse health outcomes. Those gloves are instantly just as unsanitary as your hands the second you put them on. Having gloves on would lead to a false sense of security, you'd be less likely to change your gloves after they'd been contaminated than wash your hands making cross contamination more likely. Happily someone listened to the uproar from restaurants and a new law was passed.

I'd sooner bring poorly prepared food home to my dog for her enjoyment than I would send it back to the line for improvement.

If it was farked up on the first attempt, the positive dining experience has largely been lost anyway.

I fixed computers in hotels and hostels for a living for a few years

There was one hostel that had them hidden in a dark space in the basement that had two terminals set up so nobody but the viewer could see the screen.  We called them the spankstations after I started looking at the logs of what sites people visited.

My employer bought gloves for me.  People are gross.

Not if I'm abstaining entirely!

My method: wet hands, get a good lather up with soap, scrub hands, wrists and forearms including backs of hands, between fingers and tips of fingers emulating doctors scrubbing up in the movies while counting "one thousand one, one thousand two" all the way to "one thousand twenty", scrub for a moment or three longer just to be on the safe side, rinse thoroughly, dry off. I dislike catching colds or getting intestinal woes.

As a former chef at a very, very low end strip club, this went double for my patrons - and quadruple for the girls working there.

I saw one guy happily munching on a schnitzel while a girl rode the table two inches from his face - and plate.

If he wanted fish sauce instead of Napoli, he should have just asked me.

On topic, wash your hands like they wash them prepping for surgery.

This has been the recommended hand washing procedure for the past 15 years I have been working at my job.

Also a food service veteran (though its in the rear-view mirror after 19 years of it) and its always stayed with me how disgusting people are.  And the number of people I've seen walk out of the men's room without washing has meant that even now, 7 years later, I still open the bathroom door with a paper towel (or, if not available, my shirt, or just my pinky finger) so I don't have to touch the same thing those people have.

/once watched my wife walk out of the bathroom without washing and come straight to the dinner table.  I'm not saying its why we divorced, but it didn't help.

Wash your hands like your actually trying to get them clean, rather than just passing them under the water, Mmmmkay?

Who honestly doesn't know this shiat? This can't have been written by a doctoral candidate, it reads like a middle school report. Also, you don't need to wash your hands after you sneeze or cough if you don't cover your mouth with your hands. You're supposed to use the inside of your elbow, at least in public.

One more thing. All of you that won't touch the door handle/knob/plate after washing your hands, it's okay to if it's brass. Brass is naturally antibacterial, like silver. Themoreyouknow.jpg
