Your View: It’s going around

JOPLIN, Mo. — Can’t figure out how you got the flu?

Maybe it was that good coffee you have in a glass cup at the local cafe.

When a waitress picks up a hot 32-ounce coffee pot and comes to give you a refill and she reaches over to pour your refill, she may rest the mouth of the pot on your cup. She may do this to keep from splashing it or it’s just too heavy for her to hold. Anyway, if she does this, you may just be getting some of the slobbers from that pretty gal at the next table and you didn’t even get a kiss. Also you may have gotten the flu virus.

Tell your waiter/waitress not to touch your cup with the coffee pot.
