Enough already!

Dear Germaphobe,

Just because I work in a health club doesn't mean I'm full of germs. Just because it's a gym doesn't we don't clean it within an inch of it's life all. day. long. Just because you work in a hospital that has had a swine flu death doesn't mean you can come preach to me every day about keeping things germ-free. It's a gym. We're going to have germs. Even if we disinfect every surface with gin, vodka, and fire, we're still going to have germs.

I get it. I really, really do. But I do not need daily reminders from you about how contagious swine flu is. Oh excuse me, Mrs. CDC, H1N1. But guess what? If you're going to get swine flu, you're probably going to get it while at work at the hospital, not necessarily at the gym. And guess what else? There are usually way more scary germs than swine flu floating around most gyms. Want me to elaborate? No? I didn't think so.

So please. I beg you. Stop harassing me about the damn swine flu or I'll go out, kiss a sick pig, get it on purpose, and then sneeze on you.

Much thanks,
Your Friendly Neighborhood Gym Manager

you could probably pick up just as many if not more germs on the handles of the local shopping cart. germs ARE everywhere..we just need to be smarter about not spreading them. keep cleaning and it is all you can go.

Totally sick of the swine flu (get it, ha ha). There are a lot of worse things in the world. Entitled people piss me off. If you want to stay clear of germs stay home. Otherwise, oversanitize the world yourself.
