You never know what happened to it before you got it. Maybe someone licked it. A friend of mine worked at chili’s and a co-worker cut the tip of his thumb. He hurried him back to clean up the blood. They didn’t think to remove the food. A server took it to the customer. Someone at the tip of a thumb that night. Shudder.

In response to a confession. I honestly don't get the point of this confession other than that the OP thinks people in those countries are somehow inferior to Americans because of their country's sanitary infrastructure. I'm learning how to design septic systems, mound systems, and wastewater treatment facilities. I guarantee you that if your city didn't have a wastewater facility, you'd either have to figure out how to build your own personal septic system by yourself or poop in a ditch. I guarantee you that any one of us would pick option #2 especially if that's all anyone in that culture has ever known. Sorry,but that is NOT a good reason to hate people. But bigots will be bigots, I suppose.

I dated a French guy for a while and yes he thought it was nasty that Americans kissed their dog's faces and slept with them. I thought he was very uptight about the whole thing, but there you have it....a cultural difference. He was also very grossed out about other aspects of typical American hygiene. I found it very strange to feel so....well...judged by someone from another country and culture. It simply never happened to me before and it was startling to think that Americans could be viewed as unsanitary? Oh, and we didn't date long.

In response to a confession. Sure the produce thing is gross, but I wash my produce anyway at home before I eat it so not really a big deal. No different than going out to eat, you don't know what the people preparing your food have touched/done with their hands before handling your meal... *shrug*

Many countries think American are disgusting for not using plastic gloves to pick their produce. When you think about how many people rummage through produce finding the piece they want, it is pretty disgusting. Americans don't think about this until it is pointed out and even then they don't care. Think about who hasn't washed their hands after going to the bathroom or changing a diaper, who sneezed in their hand or picked their nose prior to sorting through and touching most of the produce. Then there are many people that either don't wash or properly wash their produce after being touched by lots of people. Countries that have bidets think that people who don't use bidets are gross. Every country has something that isn't up to standards by another country.

You realize that there are other countries that think the US has some sanitation issues as well, right? A lot of cultures think it's disgusting that we allow dog to live in houses with us - even sleep with us. They carry disease, fleas, etc. But Americans don't see anything wrong with it. And as someone said in a reply to another post about this, Google Flint, MI or Appalacia. Heck, in parts of Kentucky, nearly half the population doesn't even have running water.

In response to a confession. Wtf are you even talking about? This is some extreme ethnocentrism, right here. I've been to China, the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, and Singapore. Yes, the culture is different, but maggot filled diapers in the gutter and trenches of shit different? No. Makes me think you either A) have never actually been to the places you named, or B) just enjoy being an ethnocentric, "America First" bigot. I'm gonna go with B. You want to talk poor quality of life, try Googling Flint, Michigan.

I think the younger generations are going to whip this country into shape and clean up the messes left behind by the baby boomers.

"Thoughts and prayers"...the most useless phrase every choked out by every person who wants to look good but intends to do nothing. "Thoughts and prayers" are not comfort to a mother whose child was gunned down in cold blood in a school.

In response to a confession. The only reason they "don't see anything wrong with it" is because they don't have better. Only about 50 years ago in this country, we used to discharge raw human sewage into rivers. Turds and everything. It really has only been recently that we have thought enough about our own environment to do anything. Trust me, most countries that get upgraded facilities do use them and gladly. I remember visiting a tiny town in Honduras where they had finally gotten a plumbed toilet in their village. They were so proud of it and even though there was always a line, they were extremely thankful for it.
