Employees must wash hands


So I think I may have uncovered the identity of the germaphobe behind the world’s preachiest toilet signs….

I suspect it might be the woman I witnessed pouring a bucket of bleach over the kitchen sink the other day. And then this morning in the bathroom, she sprayed every handle, door and tap with Glen 20 before proceeding with her business.

Upon further investigation I discovered that this woman also has a dustbuster affixed to the wall next to her desk and a pump-pack of that hospital-grade hand-soap.

Man, it must be exhausting being that pernickety!

I wonder how long it will be before she has the box of surgical gloves on her desk and puts a pair on before handling anything, or touching anyone.

She could also lobby your employer for the sort of things I saw in the US ...paper toilet seat covers, automatic loo roll dispenser, self flushing, taps turn on and paper towels dispense automatically when you put your hands under them.

And don't forget the sanitary napkin disposal bins that open and shut when you wave your hands above them...

Maybe someone should tell her that desk tops have more germs than toilets. Or maybe not...
