Sanitize Me

Posted on Fri, May 13, 2011 at 1:44 PM

I recently went into a walk in clinic that happens to be one of the busiest locations in HRM. I was just going to get a prescription filled so I went in feeling pretty healthy. As I sat there, I looked around me at people looking like death, but mostly sick children coughing and sneezing, walking around to get the books from the wall, playing with the toys, NOT covering their mouths, just spreading their germs. Obviously I know that it's a doctor's office and that there will be sick people but I think parents should teach their kids to cough and sneeze appropriately by covering their faces with their inner elbows. But, I know how kids are, some may know better but they don't realize that they are spreading their sicknesses. Where my problem lies, is that this being one of the busiest locations for walk ins there was no hand sanitizer. Sick people coming in and out full of sickness and no where for me to sanitize myself. Guess what, now I am sick. —TLC Me
