Just to prepare everyone, this is a rant post. A rant that I just really really really want to RANT ABOUT! It's nothing major, but it kinda got to me today.
As some of you might know from my Facebook, I recently (this Monday) started a new job at post office. It's just temporary for holidays, and I'm pretty happy with it. I like people I work with a lot, so I was thinking of bringing in something.... maybe cookies sometimes. Well today at least 3 people there were talking about how they NEVER EVER EAT ANYTHING THAT WAS PREPARED AT HOME AND BROUGHT IN FOR EVERYONE because you never know if the person preparing it washes their hands, or follows any sanitary/cleanliness standards. So they would only eat something that was prepared commercially....... There goes my idea with bringing something.
All I could think was SERIOUSLY? Do Americans (most of the people there are Americans, the people talking were definitely Americans) are really that spoiled? Grossed out? Narrow minded? I really don't know what else I can categorize it as. I try to respect everyone's little quirks, I sure have a lot of my own, but I think this is going a little overboard. (Just for the disclaimer, I've heard the same thing said before but never with more than one person at a time)
I really wanted to ask them what they do if they go over to someone's house for dinner? Not eat because the host dared to prepare food her/himself? Or watch them prepare it to make sure the sanitary standards were upheld?
