“Actually I was a germaphobe before the pandemic. I took hand sanitizer with me everywhere and used it every time I touched communal objects such as door handles, restaurant menus, condiments, money, you name it.”
(Bold because my quoter wasn’t cooperating.)
Same here, for well over a decade! People sometimes mocked me, but still accepted it if I offered! And menus, for some reason, were the worst to me! In some ways, I think my pre-COVID germphobe ways (and, oddly, my OCD) helped me when this all went down. In other ways and on other days, though, yikes—it was the exact opposite.
