Public Service Announcement #33

Do you lick your fingers to flip the pages of books, magazines or newspapers?...


[via]

Stop it. Stop it, right NOW.

We do not want your germs.

Unless it's your own personal property and you don't plan on lending it to someone else, do NOT lick your fingers to turn the pages.

Same goes when you're at the office and handing out pages of a report to your colleagues. No finger licking to separate one page from another.

You work in retail and you're counting money into the customer's hand? No finger licking to separate the bills.

If you really need to get a grip, there are products on the market such as rubber finger tips...



Or finger cots...



The Mistress has spoken.

This has been an Infomaniac Public Service Announcement.

  1. What about in the supermarket when attempting to get one of those extremely thin plastic bags out of the dispenser to pop one's choice of apples/bread rolls/shrunken heads in?

    Yay! First!

    2. MR. DeVICE: You lick your fingers to open the bag and then you handle all the fruit and veg so that others may catch whatever parasitic disease you may have at the moment.

      I don’t think so!

      DAMIEN: Is there a head tax involved?

  2. I remember when bank tellers used to have a little round sponge in a dish dampened with water that they could dip a finger or two into before counting out money. Now they seem to have an auto teller behind the counter that precounts your withdrawal and they just hand you the filthy lucre in a wad...

    1. PRINNY: I’m certain we’re the only ones who remember the little sponge cup at the bank teller’s counter to moisten your fingers.

      Yes, the bills now come out of an auto teller but the human teller stills manually counts the bills into my hand. And yes, I’m the only person I know who prefers the teller to the ATM machine.

  5. Once felt a bit seasick when I saw someone licking his fingers in the reading room of an archive. He studied files from late 17th century concerning diseases.

  8. I use the blow method instead.

    I'm thinking about getting one of these to use on my gentlemen callers.

    What are your view on the five second rule

    1. MITZI: My friend packed a UV-C portable wand whenever she stayed in a hotel.

      The five second rule makes no sense, as once a food item hits the floor, it’s in contact with whatever dirt and grime is there. One might make an exception for a cookie whereas a Brussels sprout would be washed or tossed into the compost.

    1. PEENEE: Your husband was impossibly handsome and therefore you had to live with any and all bad habits.

      Such is the path of love.

    1. MISS SCARLET: What you do in the privacy of your own home is none of our business but keep your finger away from the masses.

      It will be our little secret.

    2. I meant to say "finger licking" but "keep your finger away" is good advice too.
