I thought I would not have to go here but some people do not understand that etiquette also includes hygiene. Smh (*Translation: Shaking my head). This weekend I heard a disturbing story of a person who was about to attend a work potluck luncheon and discovered one of their coworkers in the restroom rinsing off the lettuce. Now I do not know what comes to mind when you visit your office restroom but I can think of 10 things which do not even belong on a food website. Visions of lettuce commingling with the same space where people wash their hands after doing whatever they do in those stalls (*#1 or #2…), would make me avoid salad for at least a week.
The etiquette lesson here is: food does not belong in the bathroom. They do not mix. End of story. Really, end of story…until next week…le sigh…
