Mind you, I used to be able to brag that we never bought bottled water, but Baja water and coffee or tea just didn't make a drinkable combination so bottled water it was.

No surge protector though.

while shopping in the grocery store with DW, we were looking for some salad ingredients when I notice a man looking at the bundles of shallots, picking up a bunch at a time and putting them to his noise(against it) for a good sniff. He did this two different times and put each of those back (guess they didn't have the proper shallot aroma) and finally picked another bunch and put in his buggy. Ain't no wonder we come down with all kinds of weird stomach bugs and worse....

of course we always give veggies a good washing anyway, but you never know...

+1 I just shake the hose while the gray drains to make sure it no solid matter is clinging inside the hose.

I have disposable gloves, but they get used to keep grease off my hands while hooking/unhooking. It takes a lot more effort wash off grease than fecal matter. I'm also not paranoid about my own fecal matter, as studies have shown its probably on my toothbrush anyways.

I figure that it came from inside me and didn't kill me, so getting a little on the outside of me won't either. I still wear gloves just to be fashionable like everyone else.

Silly things I've seen

Original post was about silly things seen, but all have been about sanitary issues.
How about the people who take the dog for a walk in a baby stroller. Now that's some silly fecal matter.

I was taught by my Mom to wash all vegetables we were going to eat. That came from my grandmother who was born in Poland.

The silliest thing I experienced was a nice group of folks that did not know how to start a fire after a real good rain. I watched them for a bit and then a bit more. Finally I went over with my axe. Split a piece of wood and showed them how to start a fire on the dry wood surface I had split.

One of them was good on the guitar and we had a wonderful time singing songs. A truly great memory.

Maybe he's a newbie and no one has shown him proper technique..... I would be out there asking him if I could assist him instead of writing about him... just saying. If he didn't accept it then well I at least tried. We all have to start somewhere.

I keep a box of the Harbor Freight vinyl gloves outside. They're very inexpensive and I can just throw them in the trash before going inside.
I use the same type of vinyl gloves, I cut the fingers off the gloves before using them,makes it easier to work on sewer hose,etc,but I never touch anything after using them,like door handle,water faucet etc because I'm too busy cooking burgers........

I have tried several types of rubber gloves, or whatever their made of, and as of yet have not found any that I can even about get on my hands. If eventually I ACCIDENTALLY get a pair on the first thing I touch they EXPLODE!!!! Guess I will have to start shopping somewhere else, I just figured the Dollar General Store brand would do the trick.....Seems I would have learned my lesson by now after going through $12 worth....
This Thread has learned me a lot, buy good ins' to begin with.. Thanks!!

Wow, I'm new and I knew enough to not flush my slinky with my white water hose. Kind of don't know what to think about that other than Wow!

Anyone who uses vinyl gloves needs to learn how to take them off without contaminating the hands inside. If you take a hazardous bodily fluids class in a first aid or education setting, you learn to take the first glove off by pinching the outside of it, pulling it inside out as you remove it. Then you clean, recently gloved hand reaches inside the other glove and pulls it off from the inside. Both gloves end up inside out, and your hands stay contaminate free. (We were foster parents and were required to get this training. Very helpful in lots of situations.)
