How Gross Are you?


Tonight on blogthings.com (a link I got from Priscilla's now deleted post) I took the "How Gross Are You?" test. I got a score of 20% gross, but then I retook the test and was a little more honest, I got a score of 28% gross. My husband took the test and got a score of 32 % gross, and proceeded to tell me that I am grosser than he is and that my score was really higher than his. Of coarse I begged to differ, we were actually arguing over who was grosser than who! He says that I don't replace HIS bath towel until it smells funky, (but I say he should replace his own bath towel before it smells...I do my own!)therefore I needed to check that question. It was actually pretty funny and we were laughing, so nothing serious...just a little fun. So how gross are you?

Now wait a minute. I answered the questions the way they were asked, but she translated the questions so that she could "justify" not checking them. When I retook the test checking the ones that she should have checked she got a 40%. That's pretty gross, but I love her anyway.

Priscilla said...

I am 32% gross.

Martha said...

Well, I have to admit that I came up slightly grosser than Rachel. But, if I am the one who vacuums the floor after I drop the fingernails, do I still get gross points for that? And, look, I've had seven kids and sometimes I just don't have time to carefully place a cover on the toilet seat. When I gotta go, I gotta go!

T said...

I got a 36%
I am with martha on this one I do the mopping and the vacuming, thus I don't think that nail question should count, and the same goes for the toilet thing too.
not to mention in the winter time here the parks close the bathrooms and they have just porta potties.

Martha said...

Yeah, and after all, what are those potties for?
And what happened to...
1. Do you pick your nose?
2. Do you pass gas in public?
or
3. Do you spit on the sidewalk?

I'm glad they didn't ask things like "Do you go in the yard or drink out of toilets"!

Rachel said...

The porta potty thing was one that Dave made me check. I HATE to use them, but HAD to when we went to Nick's Lake a couple of years ago because that's ALL there was. I told hime that wasn't fair because my other choices were to go outside or in my pants (which is much grosser) so I didn't have a choice. He said "Too bad, it says have you used one, and you have.

Dave said...

OK, this sounds like you are all making excuses for being gross. Yes, Martha, you get gross points for dropping the fingernails (I thought it was toenails). With that kind of logic you shouldn't get gross points if you are the one that dropped the food that you are eating off the floor. I don't think so, but nice try. Now for the porta-pottie...I don't think it should count if you don't actually sit down in there.

Martha said...

Ok, so I turned out 40% gross on the test. But I dropped those clothes on the floor already knowing I would put them back on again. (Is that gross?) Also, I think hand sanitizer is for people who who are either overly paranoid or don't bother to take the time to actually WASH their hands.

Anonymous said...

This test is biased in favor of males who don't need to sit on public toilets or use porta potties when a tree is available.

kristina said...

I thought I was 28% but really I am 32% gross. I used my friend's lipstick and hairbrush the night I locked my keys in the car. I thought she was gross for letting me, but I did it anyway.

Rachel said...

Martha- I'm with you on the hand sanitizer, and the clothes on the floor. Also, what's wrong with wearing a new sweater or jeans before you wash them?

Bethany said...

I was 44% gross... But only because I've used a friends brush before and HAD to use a porta potty... and okay, so I don't change the towels till they smell like they need to be, but isn't that okay? I mean, how much laundry can a girl do in a week?

Shelly said...

So.... is it better to wear a pair of used underwear 'in a pinch' or to go without underwear altogether????

Rachel said...

yikes!

T said...

well that boosts me up a notch on gross if you count the clothes that you know you are gonna were again...;D . and hand sanitizer.... wellllll God made germs for a reason no?

sydney said...

yah jazzy
not to mention I'm glad we didn't take the test.... or we could....
we would pass.
there is no burping on it. and humans never use our brushes and I don't share with the cat. there is also no cat poo eating on it either... see we would pass.

Sherman said...

I threw up on the carpet last night and tried eating it again ...am I gross?

Rachel said...

Sherman, you're disgusting!

Kim said...

I'm 32%gross. If you gotta go, you gotta go, it doesn't matter where. Even if you have to squat in the desert or woods. And people ask why I always carry tissues with me.

Tracy said...

I am not telling how gross I am! I agree with all of you. There are much grosser things than were on that list. And you gotta be a little gross to be a nurse. (don't ask me why or I'll tell you... )
