Don't you people have any natural immunities? Your immune systems gone haywire? I WILL NOT make myself look like a fool by using paper towels to touch doorknobs in public places. Please!
Pride goeth before a fall.
When I look around at the general population, and what they deem appropriate behavior in public, I couldn't care less what anyone else thinks of me for taking precautions that I personally decided to take.
Hold on, even without looking at the general population, I still couldn't care less of what anyone thinks of me for taking precautions that I personally decided to take.
Why in the world would are you concerned about other people thinking you look like a fool?
If you saw me and thought I looked foolish for anything I chose to do, that's your problem, not mine.
Getting sick is not karma. Sometimes you dodge a bullet, but usually in order not to become ill you avoid contaminents.
I guess you think if you bluster enough, and proclaim loudly, you may sway people who might have a problem with even potentially looking foolish. You'll convince them that they shouldn't do something, even if it goes against their personal judgement.
I'll make my own decisions regarding my health, thank you very much.
Also, I've been sick enough in my life that I don't feel I need to embrace illness, but rather, embrace the fact I'm intelligent enough to avoid it.
Since I now avoid such situations, I've rarely become ill, and feel pretty damn good about that. Enough to embrace it even.
