Same here. The disposable gloves are cheap and using a technique I got from my daughter (a nurse) they are easy to take off and dispose of without touching anything. That being said, I only use them when I know I am going to get some of "it". Some of our current germo phobias have actually caused more problems than they prevent. If the immune system is never exposed to many of these "germs" it never develops the properties to deal with them. We have kids now days that get VERY sick from simple germ exposure often due to the fact that when younger their mothers washed the house down with Lysol every day.. Some of those germs are good for you in the longer run...

Laughed way too hard at this, but the pipefitters I work with can attest to it!

Back on topic, I also like meeting new folks when camping and a quick wave is fine when someone has dirty hands!

(I, also, use an old pair of rubber gloves for my sewer hoses and store it all in big plastic bin and the gloves are on the top of everything...I keep a container of baby wipes in the truck door that I use to clean up afterwards.)

Two types of people I love messing with...OCD'ers and germophobes...just too easy!
