A: Bills, Credit Card Offers, and Germs

May 5, 2009
Q: Name three things that always come in an envelope!

As I was licking an envelope just moments ago to send off in the mail, it got me thinking: that is really, really gross! How terrible is it that, after all this time, with all we know about germs now, we still lick envelopes? And then people put their fingers inside, right on the part we’ve licked, to open it. Disgusting!

Don’t do it, Johnny! You’ll get germs all over your pretty hat!
Maybe I’m just a germaphobe, but I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who is bothered by this. In a perfect world, everyone would use the envelopes like the ones Netflix movies get sent back in. They have a sticky strip, covered by a piece of paper. When you’re ready to seal the envelope, you just peel off the paper strip, and stick! What could be easier? I wish people would stand up and say, “Hey! I will do the responsible thing and not send my germs through the United States Postal Service.” *Sigh* Someday. But until then, I guess I’ll just have to be sure to use a letter opener…and then dissinfect that letter opener after each use.
