Gloves... Is it just me?

Got in the van this morning and realised I have three types of gloves with me on the seat all the time.. From left to right cold weather, wet weather, dry weather 不不不

Does anyone else do this?

No we never use gloves ,we do carry nitrile gloves for gutter work if we have to empty by hand but thats it .

Do you not get carbon dust on your hands whilst you work day to day? It's the main reason I started wearing them!

Same. I go through gloves like my nan went through slippers. That's a lot! I have no idea why my nan went through slippers a lot

I do something similar. I carry three types in the van.

Waterproof rubberised for gutter emptying.

Short fingered, lightweight Crewsaver sailing gloves for when it's very cold

Site (Screwfix) working gloves for when it's even colder

I very rarely wear gloves. It has to be bitterly cold. I don't worry too much about wet hands. I'd rather them be wet than sweaty, clammy and smelly. My hands usually only get a little damp anyway as I don't do any wiping down with cloths and they're dry again in moments.

I have several pairs of gloves for winter I have waterproof soft touch. Thick nitrile for chilly weather and ordinary nitrile for ok weather. I dont want my hands in dog pee on hose etc

Those that dont wear gloves at all do you get arthritis in your hand and fingers ?I never use to wear gloves but do now as wet hands were causing me to lose movement in my fingers.

wet hands dont cause arthritis....wear and tear or an autoimmune disorder causes it......

i use hot water so hands are warm due to warm hose all year round and dont get too wet during the day

I think the fact that we hold a pole for several hours a day which is not what our hands are intended for guarantees that we will get problems as we get older.

My hands are not wet most of the time.

Ive not got hot water but whatever is going on with my hands and fingers wearing gloves is certainly helping. Good point re the pole and the grip needed as its not a natural routine for most people.

I can't really answer that. I know it's not good to be damp for long periods but I've worked outdoors and kayaked for most of the last forty years, winter and summer, good weather to violent storm force 10 and minus 10c (worked in that, didnt kayak in it). Very rarely wore gloves.

Up to now, no problems of rheumatism or arthritis other than the very rare few minutes slight ache in a hand. I'm not trivialising the conditions. I know how lucky I am not to have aches and pains. My sympathy goes out to the good folks who do suffer from either condition. It must be horrible to have aches and pains over a long term. Hopefully the researchers will find a remedy in the next few years.

I have arthritis in both my knees the doctor said its due to laying under cars when I worked in the garage for 16 years , but when you are a teenager older age seems a long way off but it soon catches up with you .
