I laughed when they called me hypergermophobic

Since September 2013, I have refused to talk on customers' cell phones.  When the guy at the parts counter waves a grime-covered rectanguloid toward me and says, "Here, the boss wants to talk to you," my response is to place one of my business cards on the counter and answer, "Then he can call this number and I will talk to him on a land line." 

I just don't talk on somebody else's phone. 

Science backs me up.  Because, SCIENCE!

From the New York Times, no less:  ' "That devices can be a source of disease transmission is not a subject of debate anymore,” said Dr. Dubert Guerrero, an infectious disease specialist at Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D., and co-author of a study about the persistence of bacteria on iPads published in November in The American Journal of Infection Control. '

Now I just have to find a way to clean off that slimy feeling from having referenced a New York Times article.  Eeew.
