Talking Dictionary320. Human Or Plastic?


320. They were at a deli in lower Manhattan. They ordered a ham sandwich with the works. The worker behind the counter was wearing plastic gloves. They watched him put ham, onion, tomato, and lettuce on each roll. He put the rolls on paper plates. He handed them their plates. Then he wiped his gloved hands on his apron. They went to the cashier to pay. The cashier was also wearing plastic gloves. She took their money. She gave them their receipts and change. They found an empty table. He asked, "Do you think they wear the same gloves all day long?" She said, "I hope not. They probably put on new ones after they take breaks or use the bathroom." He said, "I bet plastic gloves are as germy as ordinary skin. The only thing good about gloves is that people can't pick their ears or noses with gloves on." 2.9
