Daily Rant&Rave: Don’t spread germs in the cream and sugar

RAVE To the young lady who took off her gloves and gave them to a very cold gentleman sitting on the sidewalk in downtown Seattle.
RANT To coffee-shop patrons who sneeze and cough into their hands or blow their noses, then handle the milk, sugar, cinnamon and powdered-chocolate containers put out for customers to use. I’ve watched this happen several times recently. Gross! Please sneeze into your elbow and/or wash your hands before spreading your germs. Cold and flu season is upon us.
