We all have our quirks, but some are harder to look past than others. It’s been a running joke in society that guys are bigger pigs than girls (though some women can give guys a run for their money), but it seems that this may not just be a joke anymore.
A new study from Michigan State University found that guys only wash their hands 75% of the time after using the restroom, and would only wash their hands if there was a sign reminding them to do so. Um, ew?
Michigan State officials put up signs in bathrooms that said “4 out of 5 Males Wash Their Hands,” along with photos demonstrating the proper way to wash. As a result, eighty-six percent of guys reported only washing their hands after seeing the sign.
This still leaves 14% of guys with germ-infested palms, and I’m not prepared to find out which guys are the dirty ones.
