I do this all the time. Especially when I just came from grocery shopping and my hands are full I’ll take my keys out, use my mouth to get the proper key and then open my door. I’ve thought many times about the cleanliness of the keyhole of my building, but didn’t take it much further past that. I’m not a germaphobe by any stretch of the imagination. I’ll eat something if it falls on the table when I was serving myself, because I just don’t care. As long as it’s solid, I’m not going to wipe up some sauce and eat it off the table because that’s next level gross. With sauce clearly it’s touched more of the table whereas a food item like a vegetable generally doesn’t touch much of the table depending on how it’s cut.

Just yesterday I was calling a friend out on the fact that he didn’t want to touch his phone before eating due to the amount of bacteria that a phone can have on it. My thinking is that if there’s really as much bacteria on the things people are paranoid about then people would be getting sick all the time. Granted it’s not helping to be touching massively infected areas, but neither is leaving the house for that matter. I know people who swear by preventative medicine like echinaea, but each year I still see those same people get sick around the same time everyone else does.
