Default Are you a "finger licker"?

This is one of those things that drives me INSANE!

I was at Target a few days ago, and the cashier was a major finger licker. She licked her fingers to count my money, THEN licked her fingers to count my change, and finally licked her fingers to separate the bags apart. I kept thinking about how this poor woman was going to get herself sick. ICK.

Also, it really grosses me out when people lick their fingers after eating stuff. Watching people finish up a bag of chips and go to town on their fingers is just... It's one thing if you're in your own home and your hands are clean, but to do it after touching who knows what just bothers me!

So... answer the poll and post about it. LOL.

My brother just goes to town, it's really nasty.

Oh and he also sits there and licks the flavourings off the chips sopping it in spit before eating it. Though he used to lick the flavouring then put the chip back in the bag for others, so at least it's not that, I guess

The story about the cashier totally grosses me out, I have to immediately wash my hands after handling money, just so many disgusting things that can be found on the stuff. I get a little weird about it when people lick their fingers and then handle paper, I can't help but stare at that little thumb smudge and absolutely avoid touching that area.

None of your options suit me. LOL!

I know I occasionally lick my finger to turn pages of sheet music (if I've forgotten to dog-ear the corner first). WHERE IS THE SHEET MUSIC ONLY OPTION???

So I chose Dorito Cheese, even though I don't like Doritos.

Where is the "I don't need to, I have a dog for that" option?


If somebody was licking my fingers, they never would have made it to husband status

Technically I only lick my fingers if I've taste-testing a meal/sauce/batter/whatever. I use my fingers because I know they are clean and I hate licking the spoon because I know I'll be re-using it. HATE chefs that use the spoon, then put it back in the pot. Ew? I also run my hands under water every time I test, though. Thus why it takes me forever to cook some things. I'm constantly cleaning as I go.

I don't really eat chips. I've actually never thought to lick my fingers to separate money or papers. Actually, I RARELY handle paper or money. Most of my work is online..soo...yeah. And I don't eat messy food while typing. Greasy, nasty keyboard is nasty.
