People Amaze Me...

Just got back from the restroom where I watched a woman who works in my building quickly run her hands under the water sans soap after using the facilities. She is well~known for her lack of hygiene (we often hear her from the stalls wash her hands much too quickly to properly clean them) but I hadn't ever actually seen her failure to use soap with my own eyes. This grosses me out to no end, especially considering that I get to touch the same door handle with my CLEAN hands that she just touched with her DIRTY ones. I almost said something ~ "Whoops! I think you forgot the soap there!" but stopped myself, unsure of how my comment would be taken.

What do you think? Should I have commented on her "hand~washing" technique?

***UPDATE***
I ran into Miss I~Don't~Need~To~Use~Soap again in the bathroom this afternoon, and she actually used soap when she quickly cleaned her hands! Perhaps she noticed my look of disgust at her failure to use soap this morning? Let's hope this wasn't a one~time thing and she realizes how much better clean hands feel than dirty ones!

I would have said something along the lines of "Oh, is your dispenser out of soap? Here. Mine has some..."

Of course, that's also why we carry Purell, right? Ew.

I ALWAYS use a paper towel from the dispenser to open the door.

Germs...ewwww!

Double eeeewww! Maybe you need to get a bottle of hand sanitizer, tie a bow on it and leave it anonymously on her desk.
