Wash your Hands

So maybe I made up the number in the title, but I do have pet peeves and I have a lot of them.  So many I’ve often thought of replacing my Twitter Bio with “I snark therefore I am.”  Would that be off putting?  I often wonder if my snark actually holds people at arms length sometimes.  I mean if you get too close I may just make fun of the smell of your deodorant (honey, we’ll chat about that later mmmmmm K?)

So one of my pet peeves is hand washing.  Especially with a toddler in the house I wash my hands a lot.  Before I eat, before I make dinner, after I eat, after I make dinner, after using the restroom . . . you get the point right?  Wash your hands people.  It’s just common sense.

Along the same line, the signs in store bathrooms seriously peeve me off.  99.9% of the time they read “Employees Must Wash Hands.”  That’s great.  Just great.  It’s sad that they have to REMIND their employees to follow the rules of basic hygiene (does their employment application also read must shower and brush teeth before coming to work?) but what about the rest of us?  If these same stores can have signs out front like “No Shirt No Service” or “No Pets” can’t they also request we as customers follow the same simple hygiene rules as their employees?

That’s why I was thrilled to come across the above sign in the ladies restaurant at lunch a month ago.  It’s fabulous.  Simply fabulous.  So fabulous I risked looking like a crazy person to snap a quick I-Phone picture of it.

Don’t worry though, I made it look like I was just taking a selfie in the mirror so I’d blend in with the rest of the people in the world.

Ahhhhh selfies.  That’s pet peeve number 1279.  We’ll talk about that later.

Question of the Day: Do you like me BECAUSE of my snark, or in SPITE of it???? 


  1. Because of. Blogs can be very boring without snark, even if it’s understated and/or implied. Now I’m consumed with wondering how my deodorant smells, though, thanks

  2. obviously I enjoy a good snark.

  3. Definitely a fan of the snark. 🙂 I think it was a pleasant addition to your other lovable qualities, and not something I noticed immediately.
