Years before Covid arrived on the scene (ever since the early 90’s) I was one who had already adopted a natural habit to frequently wash my hands.
Years after (In 2006 on up) I constantly wore gloves at work in retail department stores.
I was careful where I sat down at in public areas also. Sometimes I wouldn’t even sit down if I didn’t have something to cover a seat with.
In a way, I guess I was a germaphobe. It was all for good reason.
One day I was at work with a client.
She took her bare hand dug down inside her pants to vigorously scratch her pubic area then touched the landline telephone that I had to clock out with.
She didn’t even wash her hands before she used the phone.
This lady had the nerve to get offended because I wore gloves whenever I worked around her.
It is just a fact; everyone is not hygienic. One never knows where someone’s mouth has been (I was never one to let people kiss me either).
And, as I have already mentioned, one never knows where one’s hands have been, and so on.
