Hubby is not washing hands.

We had a conversation about this, I had noticted that every so often he did not
wash his hands after being in bathroom. It seems to become more often,or I
have noticed it more lately. I said something to him and my daughter so not to
"point" fingers.
He said I always wash. I could not bite my lip. I called him on it. He debated me
on when he does and does not have to wash.
What do you think? Am I just being too picky, or has he got a point.
I'm just grossed out!

  • I don't wash after everytime either. While wiping if my hand don''t actually touch my junk then I don't wash. I also don't wash when I am about to go wash dishes or something else where my hands will get wet regardless.

  • i think guys are kinda like that in general. i wouldn't mind if they caught you not washing your hands, they would be the first person to say it to you and give you a hard time about it. guys are more lazy and don't think of how gross it is as we woman do.

  • You’re not picky. Hygiene is very important. I tell my family to wash their hands especially if the coming from outside when they are about to eat. The flu season is coming upon is and it become really important. Just tell him please wash after finishing your business.

  • When he comes down with a fat case of e.Coli, he'll change his tune.

  • Not picky, he should do this for hygeine reasons and to set an example to teach his childre to do it. Gross.

  • My son is like that, he claims he washes but we tend to think otherwise. So I make sure to keep a bottle of hand sanitizer on the counter, and when I see him come out of the bathroom I give him a look, he rolls his eyes and makes a big sign noise and then he sanitizes.
    So yes I do think not washing is gross.

  • Sometimes I don't wash my hands when I get done using the bathroom (that's only when I pee, I always wash after going number two), but I am constantly using hand sanitizer. My husband doesn't always wash his hands either (I've called him out on it before), but he also uses hand sanitizer like a maniac as well.
