Every time I walk up to a public ATM machine I always wonder about the keypad. Just take a moment and have a good look at one. Most are truly disgusting. Dirty beyond belief. What nastiness is on there? Now a new study shows that quite a bit of nasty is on those keypads, along with many other public items you touch on a daily basis.
Among the gems, 16% of cellphones have poop on them. Also, computer keyboards are 5 times dirtier than a toilet seat. There is no stat for ATM keypads but I can only imagine. Fortunately, we put these things out of our minds for the most part because if you didn’t, you woud be carrying around a large jug of hand sanitizer and rubber gloves everywhere.
