Dirty Old Man Means What It Says

We’re all having to remember personal hygiene far more than ever before.  I used to think I washed my hands frequently enough before the pandemic arrived but when I analyse just how many times I need to touch food or my face and hair for example, it just shows that I have had to step up my hand washing far more.   I just wonder how many out there have stopped this and gone back to their old habits – having seen the resistance some older men put up to being asked to wash their hands, when away on a cruise ship last year.  I was astounded how offensive some of the old guys were when refusing to obey a perfectly acceptable and very nicely put request.  I am seriously ashamed of being an older British citizen at times – especially when older British men show me up by refusing to wash their hands when entering the restaurant areas on a cruise ship – for heave’s sake!
