I didn't realize saliva grossed so many people out. Hm.
This.

I will lick my fingers to separate pages of a magazine or something, but not money. I see a lot of cashiers with a little container of this pink stuff that they rub their finger on to count money.

I only lick my fingers when eating at home... and it's usually only if it's something like Cheetos or whatever.

People that lick their fingers when dealing with money, etc, grosses me out too! lol

Yes. I hate to have to admit it, but yes. My fingers never seem to be able to separate papers or money, turn pages of magazines or newspapers. I don't know what else to do when I'm standing there ready to hand over my bills to a cashier. I try to do it fast and not get too much spit on them. I can only hope that everyone has as good an immune system as I do. And that they are glad to get my money. Maybe I should give them a tip.

For me it kind of grosses me out. I get it on things like magazines and I know at work a lot of our faxes kind of get stuck together so we use that sticky finger stuff. But I always kind of cringe when I see someone do it with money. I'm actually kind of ok if the dollars are new because I do know those are difficult to get apart but I'm talking old dollars where I want to grab the person's hand and scream at them they don't know where that dollar was. x.x

When it comes to food I don't really ever get my hands dirty enough to lick them but when I do with chips or BBQ I usually just use a napkin. A lot of my friends do it and I don't have an issue. My issue is where the person's entire hand is the color of whatever food they got on their fingers and they just go to town on them.

I only lick my fingers when a.) something delicious is on it - like icing and b.) when I'm reading a book and I can't freaking grip the page to get it to turn.

I can't stomach licking my fingers after eating something (like chips, chicken, etc.). I will lick off sauce/icing and such, but even that's hit and miss depending on what it is. I don't think I've ever licked my fingers when I count money.

Yes, yes it does. Discovered that quite by accident one day...teach him to poke at me while we're driving...

I totally lick my fingers when I eat, at home, out of polite company. I think licking your fingers and then handling money is just begging to get sick, though. Handling money grosses me out a little.

I lick my fingers at home if it's just us. Ick... Couldn't imagine handling money and licking my fingers... Gross!

Once had a boyfriend who licked my toes as I was sleeping... Creepy. Needless to say, that was that. Lol.
