Stop Finger Lickers

Buffalo, NY

What can be done to stop all the area cashiers from licking their fingers and getting saliva all over our groceries?

It is so disgusting but happens all the time. Why don't they just spit on our stuff.

I talk to so many people who are disgusted and bothered by this. Everyone needs to start speaking up to the store managers each time it happens.

If you are going to blow your nose or lick your fingers, don't touch my food!

I'm glad that I am not the only one this bothers. It isn't like there is no other way to open the plastic bags.

Saliva is a body fluid. Lubricate your fingers with a sticky pad, water in a cup, or get some finger grips.

Some cashiers say that finger licking is a habit and they just can't stop. If that is the case, they should work in a department that doesn't require separating bags.

You wouldn't stick your hand in blood, urine, mucus, or sweat before handling a customers groceries, would you? Saliva is a body fluid! Use some hand sanitizer if you do something dirty and keep your hands clean if you are working with the public.

Actually, when a cashier has a cold & is coughing & blowing a lot, I'd rather just not even check out. I have a lung disease & any cold germs or whatever go STRAIGHT to my lungs. YUCK!

I'm in a weekly card club, this one woman (in her 60's), always has to lick her fingers just before she deals, gags me everytime...and she works in a hospital! I'm forever using the hand sanitizer..

I love to lick my fingers following a violent "sausage slammin'" session.
I adore the taste of knuckle gravy.

Cashiers don't make enough money to care about hygiene and habits. They care about punching in and out so they can afford to buy $1 Burger King Double Cheeseburgers daily and pay their cable bill.

Stop complaining and speak up. I have no problem telling a clerk to stop right there. If their finger goes in there mouth, I open mine. I'll ask them to use hand sanitizer or wash there hands. Not open for debate. Gross people don't intimidate me. Enough said.

What life coach? Did it make you mad that this was posted by KT before you could? I read the post and felt sure it was your reply. Sounds just like something you would post.

What about fast food finger-lickers? Other day the girl licked her fingers to get the fry papers apart. Do you want some spit with those fries? Yuck!

I don't see what the big deal is. If the worst thing that happens you today is that your cashier licked their finger, you need to reevaluate your priorities.

I do this all the time. I HAVE to because the bag are STICKY! Typical shift = THOUSAND Lics. Big deal. No one minds EVER. Sometimes I lic two or three fingers many times if the bag is really stuck.
Oh and to the poster Shut up and Say something. YOU SHUT UP. I won't use sanitizer to make you happy. I touch your money and don't make you use sanitizer first. ZING!!!!!!

I think Newfane Jimmy may have been my cashier the other night. LOL Nothing like spending 200 bucks on groceries only to have a slob cash you out. Self-checkout is the way to go
