Reason behind the Courtesy?

Specialist is giving bedside teaching to a group of medical students.

At a patient's bedside,

Specialist: "This patient has very interesting heart murmur. You all can take turn to listen to it," He then put his stethoscope diaphragm at the valve area, and passes the earpiece to one of the students.

So the students took turn to listen to it. The last student, after listening, took out an alcohol swab from his pocket and started to clean the earpiece.

The specialist was impressed, "Among all the group students, you're the only one who has the courtesy to clean it before returning to me."

The student replied, "Oh you're welcome. In fact I'm having otitis media and the pus discharge just can't be stopped. But don't worry, I'll clean it for you."

Specialist: "......"
