Random Observation

I sometimes see hospital workers who head to work in their scrubs, riding the subway, walking the [dirty, dingy] streets of New York, buying their morning coffee, etc.

Call me crazy, but aren't scrubs supposed to offer a sanitary sartorial presence? How does wearing your scrubs from your apartment, sitting on gum on the subway, stepping your Crocs into some dog crap on the sidewalk, and letting the 8,000 different smells, noxious chemicals, and who-knows-what-else-you-encounter-in-transit permeate your threads aid any way in a hygienic workplace?
