Yet again, form trumps function

So I'm running errands today. In one place a conversation about the flu arises while I wait.

Hard to imagine me arriving early but I did.

I mentioned that the hand sanitizer stuff was everywhere now. Even at my work, we have those little bottles of Purell.

So what does the proprieter pull out but this huge bottle of generic hand sanitizer.

And apparently they use it.

They thing is that we could just stop and wash our hands to accomplish the same thing at a hundredth the price. The difference seems to be that the gel is new, popular, demonstrative, and more expensive.

Yet again, form trumps function.
