I stepped in gum yesterday and for basic sanitary reasons I wanted to remove it from my shoe.
I used my pocket knife to try and scrape it off the sole. The problem is, I accidentally poked my finger with the knife after having used it to scrape the gum off my shoe. Not only that, my basic impulse, of course, was to put my finger in my mouth.
I searched online for possible diseases that I could have contracted but I don't really even know what the risk actually is... Can anyone provide more information?
PS - Don't spit your gum out on the floor - it's environmentally unfriendly, and rather rude as it could cause something like this to happen.
