What burn my button more than anything is people at dump stations that don't use their sewer hose. Just pull the valve, and let it go.

X2 I saw on toy hauler coming back from a place near the Yuma Proving Grounds that was going down the road with his tanks open, glad I wasn't behind him. He was turning south on Hwy 95.

Doubtful, but each time I go to dump the tanks I have flash backs to my first EMT class and how they drilled body substance isolation in to us.

If you catch something from your own, or spouses, waste, there's something wrong with your marriage

Agreed, but we have friends who subscribe to the theory "it's better to know someone who owns an RV than to own one yourself" It's ok though they own the boat and snow machines.

Do you wipe yourself with your bare hand or do you use TP? Aha. Thought so.

In my opinion, gloving up is essential. It's not so much your own germs, but handling the faucet, and the hose itself dragging through other people's black water, and splashes. Every contact leaves a trace.

While I know we are trying to be serious, the bare hand comment takes me back to Navy boot camp, where our company commander taught us how to use a single sheet of TP 4 times. Seems the technique required you to poke your finger through the center of the square, wipe with your finger then clean your finger with one of the corners, repeat up to 3 more times as needed. Never tried it and not sure I believe he had either.

As my fellow sailors in here will tell you the difference between a sea story and a fairy tale is, a fairy tale starts out once upon a time and a sea story starts out this ain't no s&%t. No pun intended.

Today I sat and watched the guy across the road packing up. He undid his water hose (green) and lay it on the ground. Then he hooked up his sewer hose - no gloves - and drained the tanks. Next he undid the sewer hose and stuck the green hose into it and turned the water on. I heard him telling his neighbour - a friend- that he was back washing the tank so he wouldn't have to do it at home. I guess when he had water in the tank as he was holding the sewer hose up over his head, he put it back in the ground receptacle and let it drain. The put both hoses away and washed his hands off at the tap.

Must be nice to be able to do that. I have known people who claim they have never been sick a day in their life. I am not one of those people. I don't take chances on obvious health hazard critical control points like sewage.

The problem with gloves is how to clean them and store so they will be steril the next time you use them. I wash my hands well after using them.Just avoid biting your nails before washing.

X-Large Nitrile Gloves - Pack of 100

They fit nicely in the garbage can after use.

Have you ever had so-called "stomach flu"?

If you have, you need to realize it wasn't a flu bug you had, but a poo bug...

Just sayin'.
