3. Skipping Hand Washing
Refraining from washing your hands after using the toilet can spread a variety of germs and diseases. It is bad enough to privately skip washing your hands. Brazenly exiting a bathroom stall and leaving the restroom without washing your hands in front of fellow patrons is a whole other disgusting can of worms. As part of the Clean Hands Save Lives initiative, the CDC recommends washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Wash your hands when preparing food, after using the restroom or changing a diaper, after handling trash, and before and after tending to a sick person.
2. Trimming Your Nails
Whipping out a nail trimmer and setting in to trim your nails is an activity best performed in private. Keeping an emery board on hand for quick, discreet repairs to rough or torn nails is acceptable. However, clipping away and accumulating a little pile of discarded fingernails is not acceptable. Worse yet is the individual on the airplane who pulls off his socks and begins trimming his toenails. Don’t be that guy! Stick to trimming your nails in the privacy of your home or hotel room.
1. Trying on Clothes
When shopping for clothing, it is helpful to try on garments you are considering purchasing. It should go without saying that a fitting room is an appropriate place to try on your selections. Meanwhile, the middle of the clothing aisle is not an appropriate place to pull off your clothes and try on your favorite picks. However, there is always an individual who either finds heading to the fitting room too time consuming or inconvenient. While pulling on a jacket to test the fit is agreeable, never remove articles of clothing in public spaces to try on other options.
