FriedChicken here again with another 2cents. There have been recent
studies done to conclude that your average ATM keypad is more infested
with germs than a public toilet. If you don't believe this to be true
then listen to this...
Your fingers touch EVERYTHING! They touch doorknobs, handrails, money, other people, etc. Face it, if there is any surface that has bacteria on it then your fingers are more likely than any other body part to touch that surface.
Now, the bacteria found on the ATM keypads will not cause lethal illness but, they can make you sick :-(
Moral is: Wash your hands before you eat, touch your ear, rub your eye or wipe your mouth. Those little bottles of hand sanitizer that you carry with you can come in handy too. Until next time, peace.
