Missing the Point

Missing the Point

 

By Elton Camp

 

Cracker Barrel is where I like to eat

Their great breakfast just can’t be beat

And, to eat in there I will also try

Since their health rating is so high

 

The place has an established routine

To assure that everything stays clean

The waitstaff are courteous as can be

And not a soiled uniform do you see

 

The restroom gets regular attention

There is no fault that I can mention

I sign attached just above each sink

Causes all their employees to think

 

“Employees this duty must not shirk

Wash hands before returning to work.”

But a waiter was about to pass it by

To clean up his hands he didn’t try

 

Then he saw my disapproving stare

“About that sign I certainly have care.

I’m not going back to work, but to take

My own breakfast on my early break.”

Hey Timmy, I'm sure you have noticed that a certain number of men come directly from the urinal and out the door without washing their hands. I've read that hidden cameras show that the percentage who do that is even higher when nobody else is in the bathroom. Imagine touching what those guys touch or shaking hands with them! Yuck! Elton
