The Fecal Position

Have you noticed that the grocery store provides disinfectant wipes to clean off the handle of your shopping cart? Now we know why.

A recent study found that 72% of carts tested were contaminated by fecal bacteria. Ack! Let me paint you a filthy, dirty picture: you touch the handle, touch your food, touch the handle, touch some more food, and so on.

I’ve only counted one person actually using those wipes to decon their shopping cart. Me.

Meanwhile, here’s something new: one well known local grocery store now has carts equipped with cup holders. This makes it easier to enjoy a beverage while doing your shopping. I don’t know about you, but I like having a cup of coffee while I cruise up and down the aisles. That’s how I roll.

Here’s the part where we get crazy: that cup holder is awfully close to the handle. You don’t suppose… ah, nevermind. Enjoy your coffee.
