Yea, well, it's a lot more prevalent than those uneducated people who have a hard time with this fact know. www.thumbsuckingadults.com and lots of other places on the net explain it but, actually, you probably haven't noticed all of them while driving, etc.
Like my say said, get over it. It's not a big deal at all.
An adult who enjoys sucking her thumb....

This is just gross. It is one thing for a child to do it, but adults who suck their thumbs probably dine at Sirloin or Ryan's and share their saliva with the rest of us via buffet handles. They rank right along with people who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom, or picking their nose (also while driving, Karen). It is just nasty.

Apparently, not understanding the spread of disease and bacteria makes you the uneducated one.

Get yourself a pacifier if you think you still need some sort of security blanket.

Hi Seriously,

There are germs everywhere, most of them quite benign, and many of them necessary for life (in your digestive system for example) and, as far as thumb sucking, most of them digest easily, and harmlessly. Shaking another's hands, touching the shopping cart handle, opening a door, and many other everyday behaviors all imply germs. Coming into contact with germs is constant.

The spread of disease and bacteria is something that is very difficult to avoid and a case can be made that totally avoiding it hurts the immune system more than helps it. To single out thumb sucking is absurd. There is no scientifically derived data to indicate that thumb suckers have significantly higher infection rates than the general population.

I suggest your germiphobic opinions are more specious than valid, when it comes to thumb sucking, especially if you compare it with other more "adult" tension relieving behaviors like smoking, overeating and gambling.

Hi, Karen-

No, it is not anywhere near comparable to smoking, overeating, or gambling. It is comparable to spitting in my food, which I think most would find disgusting, and by measure- none would find "tension relieving". There are other "tension relieving" activities discussed in various threads on this board that you probably wouldn't want to come into contact with the aftermath of if one wasn't to wash their hands.

I also suggest you wash your hands after using the restroom, as E.Coli (a natural bacteria you can find in the bathroom) is spread through feces. It's not "germaphobic", it is called "hygiene".

Obviously it's a mental disorder manifested through a security seeking action. The woman needs help!

why do we spend so much time worrying about what another person is doing???? If she was trying to suck YOUR thumb then you would have reason to be concerned....however it is quit funny that with crime rate in the climb in calloway county we still have time to worry about things of this nature....

Yes, there are other tension relieving habits. This one, though, belongs more to "posture", similar to crossing one's legs. It feels comfortable to the thumbsucker. OK, she should wash her hands, and especially her thumb, before indulging. There, now it's better....
