A Diseased Understanding Of Infection

Customer: “I’ll have a large americano for here.”

Me: “Sure thing.” *reaches for a china cup*

Customer: “Oh, no, no, no! I’ll have it in a paper cup.”

Me: “Oh, okay.” *makes his drink in a paper cup*

Customer: “I don’t want to drink out of something other people have been drinking out of. Swine flu, you know.”

Me: “Fair enough, but you know, health regulations require that all reusable dishes be run through a sanitizer that uses boiling water and a chemical disinfectant. The dishes come out basically sterile.”

Customer: “Nah, I’d still rather not chance it. Have a great day!”

(This gentleman paid cash, and when he left, put his hand on the doorknob that is cleaned maybe once a week with a basic glass cleaner, and went on his merry way.)
