Would not have believed it .....

.... if I had not seen it. Ms C witnessed this as well, so it was not just me fashing back on some mushrooms I had for lunch. We are in Hiawassee, Ga at a very nice CG. We came in from lunch a few minutes ago and drove by the dump station to get to our site. We noticed a truck and a TT at the station with two guys at the dump valve of the trailer. One of the guys was on the ground and the other was leaning on the trailer. As we got closer, we noticed something in their hands (no gloves!!) As we got beside and drove past them it was very clear each one of them had an ice cream cone. The guy on the ground was pushing on the sewer hose and then changed hands with the ice cream cone and twisted on the hose with the other hand. There was not paper, napkin or anything on the cone!
I almost gagged!
These were two intelligent looking, late 20's early 30's guys. I guess that stupidty comes in all shapes and sizes, not to mention looks.
No more ice cream for me - the lady that ran the CG store asked me to dip my own last night when we got a cone, due to an injury to her hand and arm. Gonna see who is running it now and if it is the same lady I am finished with the ice cream!!

I've got one too...

While waiting in line at our hometown dump after a trip I had ample time to observe the guy in front of me. He hooked up his sewer line and pulled his valves. He then went and got his white water hose and hooked it up to the water inlet to his camper. He then went to the non-potable water that is right next to the sewer and clearly for rinsing your sewer hose. He stuck the end into his white water hose resting the end of his white water hose on the rubber ball that is designed to seal the connection with your sewer hose. After filling his camper he drops his white water hose on the ground right near the sewer dump station to enable it to drain while he begins to wind up the other end up. One end of that white water hose was dragging all over the cement where lots of people have had their sewer hoses dribbling. After he gets it all wound up he puts it away and then disconnects his sewer hose. He then uses the same water that he used to fill his camper to rinse his sewer hose. I just hope they don't use the water in the camper to drink from... Needless to say there were no gloves involved but I don't think it matters at this point.

Additional reality check
So do any of us really think resturant employees follow the rule that state they are to wash their hands when finished handling their cargo?

I worked a convenience store for 5 1/2 years to supplement my pension after retiring and I always washed my hands and used disposable gloves before handling food but, you are correct, most do not.

Shucks, if you are never exposed to any "bugs" how do you expect to build up any immunities ???

Most humans have amazing resistance to an amazing variety of germs. In fact, most of the "super germs", those resistant to all antibiotics, are caused by the overuse of germ killers and antibiotics.

Not that I would dump the tanks and eat anything, but I usually avoid buying antibacterial soaps and cleaners. I believe in good old fashion soap and hot water, vinegar, baking soda and the occassional eco friendly cleaner.

Hiawassee? That would be north Georgia. Suppose they had bit parts in Deliverence (the movie)? Possibly banjo players?

Were the ice cream cones chocolate?

Maybe they were plumbers. You never see them wearing latex gloves when working around sewage pipes.

It's probably not much different than a guy I once knew who did the ladies' hair on stiffs at a funeral home. He told me about how the undertaker would prepare a body while indulging in a coffee and doughnut that was sitting on the table right next to the stiff.

Like anything else, it's all in what your "comfort level" will tolerate.

I'll guarantee the ones at my restaurant did! Most do, where there is ample training. I will agree that you do see all kinds though.

A couple of years ago, my wife and I were leaving Skideaway Island State park in Savannah, Ga. The guy in front of us emptied his holding tanks, took the green cleaning hose and rinsed out his sewer hose. Then filled his water tank with the green hose.

Billy Redden, who played the mentally retarded banjo player in the movie, Deliverance, is from, and as far as I know still lives in, Clayton, Georgia. Clayton is less than 30 miles from Hiawasee. So...

We love the Hiawasee area, beautiful country, but I think I will not eat ice cream at any CG there.
