Here is my RANT, it’s about my pet peeves.
Have this ever happened to you? Imagine this; you are sitting beside your friend who sneezed on their hand, and for what ever reason they patted you or touched you before washing their hands? I know I have, and let me tell you, it is disgusting, it is bad manner and it is bad for your health. My worst pet peeve will be this: “When people sneeze into their hands and don’t even wash their hands and touch you.”
To begin with, not washing your hand is bad for peoples’ health. Fist of all sneezing spreads the most germs, which cause flu or other sicknesses; it even can spread the ones that are life-threatening and dangerous. Second of all, even though some people might think their hands look clean, it can pick up germs. Even though you can’t see it, there are millions of germs on the hand alone. At last, we have most bacteria in our bodies that are non-harmful or harmful, so we are already a germ factory. Gross, right?
Generally speaking, it is really a nasty habit! Think about it, people sneezing into their hands, and be like “hey! What’s up man! Nice to see you,” and shake your hand. It just grosses me out by thinking about it! What’s worse is that some people don’t cover their mouth and they sneeze in front of you, which has higher risk of transporting germs to other people than any other method! Funny thing is, when people have some bad habit, they don’t notice it, and be like, “ugh, dude that’s disgusting!” to other people. It is so frustrating that people thinks they are not doing anything wrong. That would just want to make me wrestle with a crocodile, like in a movie!
As can be seen, it is not fun to watch other people do it, and it is obvious that it is not polite to do it in a public places, am I right? Yes I am; it would be preferred polite if they have at least a handkerchief or sneeze into their elbows. In many countries, for example, in Argentina, it is considered impolite to sneeze with hands or without handkerchief. Some of you think it is not that big of a deal, maybe not to you, but many people all over the world hates it. It is almost as impolite as cursing in the public!
To conclude, I must say that it is really gross and people should actually stop doing it in the public. If you are one of those guys then, just stop. Don’t do thing to others that you hate, or you could just care less about these things, and just go on with your life, like a honey badger. It is your choice.
