I've hit a new low:

A coworker came over to my desk today for some sympathy (I'm really good at that), and in response to their troubles, I offered them some Purell.

This was not appropriate.

It helped, though! There, I've outed myself as the "coworker" in this story.

Was the need for sympathy germ-related?

Marcia said...

No. The need for sympathy was in no way germ-related.

I must say, though, I keep Purell in my purse, and people ask me to borrow it more often than they ask for gum or lipgloss. Of course, the only people I hang out with are med student germaphobes, but still, Purell is like water for us.

I don't know about j-wat, but when I'm feeling down I almost always seek to eliminate 99.99% of the germs that are probably stewing on my hands.
