Pigs and Lawyers

Today while at the lawyers, a clerk waiting on GG and me, lacking the Health Canada recommended sleeve or tissue H1N1 defensive, sneezed and coughed instead into her open hand. She also was missing about four inches to the front of her blouse but it didn't matter much because we were busy straining to see her computer screen while she sniffled through reading some documents. Anyway, she reached to her empty Purell bottle, banged it upside down on her desk, unscrewed the container, removed the pumper smearing a remaining bit onto her hands and then squeezed each hand individually - the way a hungry infant does when he watches you fix his pablum. She replaced the top, tossed the bottle back onto her desk, rubbed her nose and twirled around handing me forms and a pen, the tip of which a few moments before had been in her mouth. I have upped my vitamins.

You would think her work colleges would have sent her home. There do seem to be more and more of these viruses, spreading like wildfire!

Take care x Vicky x

NOOOOOOOO!!!!

Took my son to the doctor two weeks ago and couldn't believe what I was seeing as the doctor continally used his hands to wipe his nose. At one point, a finger was up there, too.

Stay healthy, Decadent.

So funny!

Purell isn't effective against viruses...so, no, sister, don't bother with the banging of the bottle.

Groooossssss.....

I assume the missing blouse inches weren't from the sleeves.

AngelMc,
No, I didn't say a word - but your long-nail nurse sounds worse though. I just shuddered.
