American culture is that of cleanliness. I’m rather proud of my germaphobic culture.
However, there is a point of crossing the line.
I was fine with automatic toilets, auto-dryers, auto-soap-dispensers… To me, it was more of a convenience rather than something freeing me from “germs.”
However, I saw a product with the tagline, “Never touch a germy soap pump again.”
I was immediately reminded of one of those Nationwide commercials, “Guys, I just gagged!”
Seriously? Never touch a germy soap pump again? Really? How in the world have I gotten through my 28 years without such a product?
So why is our intelligence being insulted because of this product? What happens after you touch a germy soap pump? You *gasp* wash your hands.
What happens if you use the “touch-free” soap pump? You *long pause* wash your hands.
Am I missing something here?
