If I had a dime for every time some stranger touched my son's hand, I'd be rich! I hate when people do this. Hands carry so much germs and I don't know you! Please, quit touching my toddler! I'm especially incensed today because yesterday this woman on the subway was talking to him and suddenly grabbed his hand. Underneath her nails were so dirty, I was horrified. I put my hand over his to give her a hint, and she still persisted! I had to pull him up out of her reach. Sometimes I say things to people with this happens, but some people look so crazy nowadays that it seems the best idea is to try and move or leave. I carry sanitizer for these occasions, as well. My grandmother laughed at me and said I was overreacting. Does this happen to any of you? How do you handle it?
