Are you terrified of germs?

Germophobe Struggles In 76 Seconds
If you're a germaphobe, day-to-day living can be a struggle, so we won't exacerbate the situation by reminding you how dirty the world is.

We won't, for example, talk about the thin layer of filth dusting your keyboard, or the build up of grease and grime in the crevices of your phone, or how many people have touched your money!

Nope, we're not going to do that. But this video will.

Tips for avoiding germs

Lie: There's always a way to avoid that requisite germy handshake. Lie. Say something like: "I don't want to touch you because I think I'm coming down with something."

Perfect your basketball shot: Bathrooms are notoriously germ-filled, and you still need to touch that germy door handle even after washing your hands. So use a paper towel to grip the door handle, and then crumple it up and shoot it into the trash receptacle.

Air kiss: Even a cheek kiss these days is not the most sanitary thing. So put on your diva self and throw those kisses into the air.

Bring your own pen: All of those check-out counter and bank pens that are attached to metal beaded chains are breeding grounds for germs. So, bring your own pen.
