Wash your hands before returning to work.
 
So there I was in Taipei last week getting such a kick out of this sign in the airport. Then came the chills and fever of a flu bug that ate my flu shot vaccine for lunch. Will whoever sneezed all over the cockpit please stop it.

Wash your hands folks, it's a dirty dirty world out there.

This is a public service announcement from APC .... Now let's return to our originally scheduled programming.

P.S. I couldn't resist!:D

"It's just allergies, I've never called in sick my whole airline career"

kind of surprising to me how frequently I've caught someone's allergies.

My all time favorite was flying an 8ish block hour trip to/from San Diego with a Capt who was coughing = sneezing the whole way.....but, as he said, all he needed was to get some rest on the layover. Wasn't quite true because he was worse the whole way back. And yes, in 15 years at the company he had never been "sick".

The amazing thing is that after our "discussion", he seemed surprised that I wouldn't shake hands with him. Even though he'd been coughing and sneezing into his hands for hours.

Silly me, I thought it was the clean kind of bird poop.

I have a friend (no, not the MD-80 guy ;)) from Taiwan who says that not only will they eat anything including duck bills, chicken lips and pig penii, they don't really wash their hands first because it adds to the taste and variety. Could well be an urban legend.
