Thanks guy , for emailing me Rules that guys wish girls followed! .
Ok, it's your turn.

  1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.
  2. Learn to work the toilet seat. If it's up, put it down.
  3. Don't cut your hair. Ever.Long hair is always more attractive than short hair. One of the big reasons guys fear getting married is that married women always cut their hair, and by that time you're stuck with her.
  4. If it itches, It will be scratched.
  5. Sometimes, we'renot thinking about you. Live with it.
  6. If you ask a question you don't really want an answer to, expect an answer you didn't want to hear.
  7. Crying is blackmail.
  8. Ask for what you want. Let's be clear on this one: Subtle hints don't work. Strong hints don't work. Really obvious hints don't work. Just say it!
  9. No, we don't know what day it is. We never will. Mark anniversaries on a calendar you know we check.
  10. We're not mind readers and we never will be. Our lack of mind-reading ability is not proof of how little we care about you.
  11. Yes and no are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
  12. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
  13. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.
  14. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done, not both.
  15. Our relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out.
  16. If we ask what's wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you're lying, but it's just not worth the hassle.

Wash Your Hands


The most important thing you can do to prevent the spread of illness is to wash your hands and the children's hands thoroughly and often.


This is how you should wash your hands:

  • Rub your hands together vigorously for at least 20 seconds using warm running water and soap. Make sure you have lots of bubbles.
  • Wash under fingernails, between fingers, back of hands and wrists.
  • Rinse your hands well under running water.
  • In public bathrooms: Dry your hands with a single-use paper towel (or hot air blow dryer).
  • If your towel dispenser has q handle, be sure to roll the paper down before you wash your hands. This helps to insure that you will not pick up new germs from the handle.
  • For hand-held faucets, turn off water using a paper towel instead of bare hands so you will not pick up new germs on your clean hands. You may want to open the bathroom door with the same paper towel and then throw it away.
  • Open the bathroom door with the same paper towel.
  • In the home. change handwashing towels often.
  • These are times when you should wash your hands:
    • After you use the bathroom or help a child use the bathroom.
    • After you change a diaper.
    • After you handle items soiled with body fluids or wastes such as blood, drool, urine steel ;' discharge from nose or eyes.
    • After you clean up messes.
    • After you handle a sick child.
    • Before you prepare or .serve food.
    • Before you eat or drink.
  • Teach and show children how to wash hands correctly. They should wash when:
    • They arrive home from day care, a friend's home, an outing or school.
    • They use the toilet or have their diapers changed. ˇ
    • They have touched a child who may be sick or have handled soiled items.
    • They eat or drink.
