    OK. Not sure why, but I'm parylized by this problem.

    The 16 year old, overweight, evil, repulsive checkout girl at my supermarket who has to lick her damn thumb before every move she makes.

    Lick her thumb to seperate the bags to pack my groceries, lick her thumb to count the money I hand her, lick her thumb to count my change and then hand it to me with her %$&#$# spit on it! Nobody says anything, and for some freaky reason I can't either. I stand there and watch, literally unable to move. I want to say "quit spitting on my money you fat &%$#!", or "that's the most disgusting thing anyone can do!", or even be thoughtful and say, "do you realize the germs you're ingesting everytime to touch the money and lick your thumb!". but i can't. i can't even bring myself to talk to the manager. i try to avoid her line but sometimes she's the only one there, or the lines make it so I have to go to her or my ice cream will melt.

    Life is so difficult.

    ...listen to me, take a deep breath, count to 10....calm, calm, calm...

    ...feel better yet? :)





    Now, look at the bright side: Maybe if she keeps licking money she will ingest some rare tropical disease that is totally incurable and kills within 8 hours of infection. :smug:


    (...and here I thought this was going to be a thread about Rudy Sarzo....:bag: )

    It's probably her way of getting some action; your manly odours embedded into the dosh may well be the only thing separating this vile sounding beast from a catastrophic rampage for manly fluids.

    Look sharp bub.

    No gig last night Joe?


    I feel ya on the finger licking thing. That's pretty nasty. What if it was a hot 20 year old licking everything in sight?

    Gaaahhhh!!!

    I had a check out guy last night.... eating fists full of trail mix will ringing people up

    As he gave the change (chewing on a wad of seeds and fruit)... I asked "want me to go grab you some more?" without pause or hint of wrongness he replied "no thanks Dude, I got break in half an hour."

    :mad:
     
  6. Next time, before you go shopping, drench your bills in a laxative or some LSD ... :D

    :p That is a good idea.



    I never understood the finger licking thing. I mean, it provides slight lubrication for something most of us can obviously do without.

    It's almost as bad as sniffing coffee pots at convenience stores.

    I don't like shaking hands with people while out at a bar. Guys wash their hands about30% of the time. I shall not have urine on me because I have to stick to society's social morays.

    I really like the LSD idea. Just delete this thread if you ever decide to do it.

    Agreed. I have that problem with the inmates/employees at work. We've made announcments, had doctors come in and do helth presentations, they still don't believe us. I frequently lock the door to my office. I do not want urine soaked hands anywhere near me.

    This is a big annoyance of mine as well. I have a coworker that does not wash her hands after using the bathroom, even if you're standing there washing yours, she just walks by like nothing is wrong. THEN the capper.... she is often meeting facilitator and through the whole 2 hour meeting I have to watch her licking her fingers (yes she does not limit it to her thumb, but adds the index in there and sometimes the middle finger for prosperity :rolleyes: ). It is so disgusting because I can basically SEE the germs she is ingesting and spreading around, ugh, now I know why people develop disorders for this kind of thing.

    The licking thing is one of my pet peeves, too - I have a co-worker that licks all the time.

    I'd talk to her manager - she's a public health risk. Or call your local public health department, and explain that she apparently has OCD so they don't think *you're* the crackpot.

    Maybe she's getting off on the residual cocaine that thay say is on a large percentage of US currency?

    as a big fat guy myself, knowing that Joe is one of the Poster Boys for "Health and Fitness" here at TB, I must ask...

    are we a little sensitive about something ?

    He was just painting a picture of the scene, no harm in the wording (other then the "I'll kill you" bit)
