AND they shouldn't handle the faucets, doornobs or ANYTHING in there once they've washed them... it disgusts me when I see someone who's just washed vigorously then reach with barehands and touch a fifthy faucet and door. Just USE a paper towel...
I don't touch them because think of all the people who first handle the faucets with dirty hands, or the "just rinsers". This isn't being "unreasonable", this is me not wanting to contract E-coli and the like. (something like 6,000 "bugs" per square inch). This is how these types of bacteria find their way to the kitchen, cellphones, etc... no wonder we are so germaphobic these days.
I was just watching a fun, poplular Chef contest and you'll see them touching their face, nose, hair, licking fingers (no seen hand washing after). Is this standard practice in a resturant?
I realize this is "TV", but aren't they cooking for the judges?
Do these things just slide?
