Unhygenic restaurant practices

At one of my favorite local greasy spoons this morning and I notice the cook didnt wear gloves. I noticed the same a few weeks ago at a local pizzaria I have been going to since I was a child. In fact I saw the same towel being used to wipe hands, pull pans out of the pizza oven, and wipe the pizza knife/cutting board. it hasnt killed me yet right? Having worked in the industry for awhile, and being serv-safe certified, I know these arent safe food handling procedures. However, both occasions I made the conscious decision to not worry about it.

Anyone else ever grapple with these types of situations?
