Is there a nice way to ask a deli clerk to wash their hands?
I watched the clerk at the deli sneeze, blow her nose, and then rinse her hands for seriously 2 seconds before donning plastic gloves and asking what I needed…
I asked her, and I quote: “Hi. Would you mind washing your hands again? I know there is a bug going around, and I would prefer you to use soap.”
She said “Excuse me? Sure.”
Then she traded with another clerk.
Is there a better way to do that, or should I have skipped the sliced meat for the day?
