You would probably not be surprised the number of times over the years that I have seen this done. Sewer connections or hoses laid on the picnic table next door.............

I should not be here either I have done everything just about mentioned before.......

The forum is great now I have to wear gloves and do all kinds of cleaning that I never had done for 30 plus years of camping. Even separate hoses can't drink out of the creek with the cows ................... dang..............what next??

Not to mention the endless number of babies that might have been changed on the picnic table with the used diaper merely set aside until clothing re-snapped.

What about the birds that "decorate" the tables from on high?



I'm of the opinion that people who are exposed to germs have stronger immune systems and live longer.

He's an amateur. When I worked on corporate jets one company's CEO used a new toothbrush every single time he brushed. The flight crews knew they had to keep a case of toothbrushes onboard or there'd be heck to pay. One new flight crew let the case go empty and he fired them as soon as they landed. They had to shuttle another jet out with a second crew to pick him up.

Sewer hose

I don't use gloves handling the sewer hose, but I use plenty of soap after. What really gets me is the slobs who go #2 and don't wash hands when they leave the restroom. Recently I was at a buffet when one of these left the washroom without washing their hands and I see him promptly handling the dish serving spoons filling his plate. Where do these slobs come from? They must have failed kindergartner rules. Their behavior puts all of us at risk handling spoons that may slip back into the food tray.

So I had the displeasure of watching a fine gentleman at a dump station. Had his gloves on, helping his buddy dump his tanks, finished up, proceeded to walk back to his truck and pull up to the dump station, yes, still had his gloves on, dumped his tanks, and again, pulled his truck up so the next in line could dump. I'm willing to bet that the little snack he had on the way home had a little "after taste"

Burger King now sells meatless burgers! Well, maybe they never really had any meat, shoot, I don't know WHAT I've eaten.

Sewer hose

I was also at a dump station waiting for the person in front of me hook up his sewer hose and while waiting for the dump to finish start to eat a sandwich.

I bought a pack from HFT a few years back when I was a newbie. 96 of them disintegrated from age before use. Yeah, I just bought another pack, and I have 98 left.

Grown men have a terrible habit of not washing their hands.

We have one of those sinks at work that you pot flowers in......


What do they call it????




Yeah. A dry sink. Thatís what you see in our work rest room all the time. STRANGE

All the different things I have done growing up in the Fifties and I am still here at 70, I don't think that will kill you!

OP's post must be the reason why I saw a disposable glove, disposed of on the ground at the RV park I stayed at last week.
