Have you ever witnessed someone sneeze and then reach in their back pocket to pull out a dingy old hanky, blow nose (hard) in said hanky, and then return it to their pocket?
I have. And, everytime I am witness to this I instantly cringe.
I somewhat understand the pro(s) to using a hanky. It's environmentally a good choice. It's what generations of people have used before us.
But, the GERMS! The GERMS! Ew. Gross. How can people be OK with reusing something that you blow snot into like that? (I shiver at the thought alone...)
* This post was inspired by a co-worker who lovingly stores his hanky in his back pocket to use only to wipe face, not to blow nose. You know who you are...
