Yeah, I couldn't imagine having my fingers licked by anyone except for the dogs. That would really creep me out.

The idea of licking food particles and god only knows what off SOMEONE ELSES fingers is nauseating. I won't even lick my own fingers.

I'll only lick my own finger if it's got chocolate on it and I'm at home. Otherwise, eeewww.

I don't lick my fingers normally. I do chew on my fingernails though. I'm trying to get out of that habit. What grosses me out more is people who stick their finger up their nose or pick their nose.

No. No no no. If I were to get a little ketchup on my fingers - at home - then maybe. But I don't do it to handle things and I especially wouldn't do it AFTER handling things!

Especially this!! Working with children for so many years has made me into a compulsive hand washer and the idea of licking my hand after touching stuff... bleah.

That's the only reason I'd like my finger when eating chocolate, because I know my hand is sterile if I'm eating something.

Yup! At least when I'm eating, although usually I only do it in public if I know the people I'm with really well. I mean, why let all the yummy stuff go to waste? The chip flavoring gets on your fingers, and that is the best part!

Oh, and also when I read books and I can't get the page to turn. I'm really unsqueamish though. I didn't realize it grossed so many people out.

For plastic bags when I'm bagging my own stuff, something sweet and powdery or goopy and I'm all alone...money? Gah!!!! Money is mad filthy, when I was a cashier I had sanitizer under the counter and washed my hands every break.

Somebody else licking my fingers? Live in a house full of critters, somethings always licking me...
...wait that didn't come out right

I will occasionally, if I am trying to split the pages of magazines. I would never do it with money or food though, yuck, and not in front of people! I'm also a bit of a hand sanitizer freak, so I do that all the time.

Yes I am lol. all the time... everywhere. I don't lick to separate money or anything like that but I always lick my fingers when I eat. I can't help it lol. I just do it. I mean I'm not all "tongue wagging licking my fingers like an ice cream cone" lol

Maybe that's why I rarely get "for real" sick

Ew, gross. Nope, I'm not a finger licker. I won't say I never have, because I'm sure at some point in time I've had to, but it's something I try not to do.
