Using Handkerchiefs

Using handkerchiefs is a throwback to a time when men used pocket watches and laid their jackets down over a puddle so his female companion wouldn’t ruin her shoes. Most old habits have gone the way of the dinosaur and with good reason. While some may yearn for a time when men were more chivalrous to women, no one wants to watch a man take out a used handkerchief, use it again, and stuff it right back into his pocket. At what point has the handkerchief had enough? After two uses? Five? Ten? And that same handkerchief cleans the nose and wipes the forehead? While it may be environmentally safe to use one item over and over instead of using a tissue, I’m sure Mother Nature wouldn’t mind if we switched from plastic bags to the reusable grocery bags just so we can use Kleenex and do away with the handkerchiefs once and for all.
