For Goodness Sake WASH YOUR HANDS!
As anyone who reads this blog knows, I am CONSTANTLY asking the boys "Did you Flush? Did you wash your hands?" I assumed that this was the case with all mothers and that at some point the good lessons would sink in and they would begin to do these things on their own. That is until I was listening to talk radio on the way home from dropping the kids off. The radio personality admitted on the air that he only washes his hands if someone is watching. Now I am a huge fan of this personality but I will NEVER shake his hand after hearing that. I am so shocked and disgusted by this that I will now assume that ALL men do NOT wash their hands after going to the restroom.
What is wrong with people? DO they not know that they can get REALLY sick from not washing and then eating? Or touching their own face? Am I the only mother out there insisting on the hand washing thing? Or have I gone over to the OCD side on this issue? I seriously do not wash my hands 25 times a day. but I do wash them EVERYTIME I use the restroom, or cook with chicken, or sneeze into them. I think I will start asking random people whom I see leaving the restroom, " Did you wash your hands?" Maybe I can start a movement. The CLEAN HANDS Society. If your hands aren't clean how can we trust the rest of you is? What other body parts are you not washing? If you only wash your hands when someone is watching, then what other not so savory things are you doing in private when you think no one is looking?
