Satan's Bunny Slippers: From Reddit user"I work on a farm. When they say you should wash your produce thoroughly at home, they're not joking."I've never understood the "OMG!!" behind this....produce generally grows in dirt, is sprayed with chemicals, harvested with machines that depend on oil, grease, are made of metal (metal chips/filings) etc etc., processed on more machines, packed into crates, shipped in trucks that have shipped a whole plethora of different things in that trailer, to a store to sit on a dock, get shoved into a corner that most likely has at least a few hundred roaches, assorted bugs and vermin either currently passing through or will/have already been there. (rats/mice pee as they walk yanno) and unpacked and stocked by a clerk with a cold who doesn't wash his/her hands after using the bathroom.Why the fark would anyone NOT wash produce? And why would this be a surprising thing?
Forsythe P. Jones: I worked in a Methodist church as a handyman for a while after I retired from Corporate Hell.The backstabbing, skullduggery and gossiping there would rival or better any Fortune 500 company head office.
