Did you even know there was a part 1?
One of my friends from graduate school occasionally reminds me that the world is a very scary place. Because it is. I recently shared a hotel with her for a wedding and found out the following things.
Bed bugs are everywhere. When finding a hotel it is important to check bedbugregistry to make sure that the hotel hasn’t had a problem with bedbugs. Most hotels have.
This one we already knew: Door handles are carriers for diseases. Use a paper towel or kleenex that you then throw away anytime you have to touch one. If you don’t have one, well, do your best with whatever cloth you have available that you’re unlikely to touch. (After surviving the job market without a single illness using this advice, compared to the way I got sick every time I got on a plane before, I actually am a believer on this one.)
Glasses in hotel rooms… trust me, you don’t even want to know what she said about this. In fact, I’ve blocked it out of my mind. LALALALALA. Not thinking about it!
Your dryer can set your house on fire. You should never leave them unattended.
MRSA … I may have to email her about this one…. Or maybe not because I probably blocked it out for a reason.
airborne mutant viruses on airplanes … I also seem to have mentally blocked this one…
Sitting down a lot. It’s bad for you! But we do it.
What things are you paranoid about?
