Based on the way most humans behave, I'd say humans are little more than costumes for a plethora of bacteria and parasites.
Customers should always be served . . . to the nearest great white.

Well, some people make that more obvious than others.

I always find germaphobes to be the least consistent people. Some probably are genuinely concerned about infection whereas with others I think it's just a form of having control over others.

The person I was living with for three years did not like shaking hands. He didn't like opening doors. But he had no problem using a make-up napkin to absorb the pus from his dog's growths and then throwing it on the kitchen floor until they piled up.

He didn't use gloves while doing this, either.

Go figure.

I'll admit that as I've aged I've become more germ-phobic. Growing up on a farm...well there are just lots of nasty and dangerous things you have to do to protect your critters, crops, family and make a living.
On check-out belts I'd be more concerned about meat juices and potential poisonness OTC chemicals leaking, but that's just me. I don't buy supermarket meat and rarely buy fresh veggies/fruits.

I clean my belt as much as I can. Customers have complimented me on how clean the belt looks.

In my brief career as a checkout person, I guess I cleaned the belt every chance I got.

Grapes make me nervous. Every time I walk by the produce, someone has got their hands in the bags, re-arranging, looking at them. You never know how clean their hands are, whether they ever use a tissue or anything. Everyone seems to let their snotty-nosed kids "have a snack" from bags of grapes they're not even putting in their carts.
