Another pet peeve - people picking their nose in public. Nothing is worse. Small picks are bad enough, but the folks that go digging for gold are n-a-s-t-y! For obvious reasons, again, I have no photo for this post.
Monday morning on the way to work - small, petite older woman sits down in front of us. She proceeds to "go digging" - she is really working hard to get something out of her nose. I couldn't watch, therefore I don't know the outcome. But she was pushing 60 and should know better. EWWW!!!!!
This is why I wash my hands as soon as I get to work every morning and as soon as I get home. You don't know who digged their nose, sneezed into their hand, or picked something out of their ear - and then proceeded to put their tainted hand on a subway pole or a stairway handrail that you just touched.
Yeah, I try not to think about it. But then someone always reminds me when they "go digging."
Subway snot digger -
residual ends up on
pole and my hand, too.
