Apparently venting on a blog about pet peeves can have an impact somehow, someway.
Almost buried and overlooked in my work email inbox I discovered a farewell email that was addressed to the entire firm from germy-hand girl - today is her last day! I will no longer have to live in paranoia that she has used the same copy machine or touched the handle on the fridge in the pantry. I will probably still use a paper towel to exit the bathroom, but the garbage can right outside the ladies room can attest that I'm not alone in that precaution. It will be interesting to see if people adjust the habit after germ girl is gone.
What a nice little Friday gift for me and my co-horts on the 18th floor.
