I’ve been seeing this a lot lately and it just really irks my nerves. I can’t stand it when people cough directly into their hands. I call them hand coughers. And they are, by far, the most irritating people I’ve ever been around in my entire life.
I feel like coughing in your arm or under your shirt is something we all need to learn in kindergarten. It’s ridiculous how many people cough directly onto their hand and then walk over to you and try to touch you in some way. Disgusting.
Personally, I wash my hands 20 times a day. And I’m not sure if that has something to do with the fact that I went to school for healthcare or the fact that I’m just competent. Probably the fact that I’m just competent and it’s common sense that you don’t cough in your hand.
If you’re reading this and you are a person who coughs in your hand, get up right now and go wash your hands. That’s gross, and no one around you should have to deal with that. Do you know what that’s like? It’s like tasting food while you cook and putting the same utensil that you put in your mouth back into the pot for other people to eat.
Just in case you didn’t know (even though everyone should know this) your hands are the dirtiest place on your body. No one wants your germs in their mouth or on their body. So do yourself and everyone a favor and don’t be a hand cougher. Just don’t do it. Buy some hand sanitizer if you need to.
