Do you ever take your wedding ring off?

I have talked about this with my friends and my husband, and some people can't understand why I take my wedding ring and engagement ring off to shower, when I put lotion on, and sometimes when I am cooking. They say they never take theirs off because they are afraid of losing them. Some people even have said to me-'Why would you take them off? They are so precious. Don't they mean a lot to you?' Those comments make me mad. Yes, my rings are important to me. So important, in fact, that I take them off so I won't lose them down the drain, or get them all gunked up with lotion, or (Yuck!) gunked up with meat when I am making meatballs. Am I the only one who thinks it's not a big deal to take my rings off once in a while? It's not like I take it off to go clubbing with my friends.
