A Cashier's Plea

Now that I have re-joined the ranks of cashiers, I would like to make a heartfelt request on behalf of ALL cashiers everywhere:

PLEASE don't give us wet money anymore. Please. That's so gross. And no, we don't want to know why it's wet. We probably won't believe you, anyway. Just stop it. Ew. Ick.

Oh, and put your damn carts and baskets away, too. Thanks.

Oh good lord, yes... wet money. I think my mind had tried to save a little of its sanity by blocking that particular retail-service-memory. But it's all coming back to me now.

Yes, thank you for reminding me of one of the many JOYS I experienced during my years of working in retail and fast food as a teenager and college student. Until now, I had blissfully repressed that one!

Wet money, Tara? That's a new one on me. I'd never encountered wet money--and I agree, it's best not to know details on how it got wet. *shudder*

Ewwww, wet money...........you just made me remember some really nasty wet money from when I was a cashier at a hardware store. This guy actually pulled wet money from inside of his shorts, no lie. I was so grossed out, I sprayed Lysol on the entire cash drawer. Yeah, people can be so disgusting !

Wet money, eeeeeew! I work in retail and that's one of the nastiest things I've dealt with. I'm not sure whether it's worse when you don't know why (but can't help visualizing!) or when you do know why--once, years ago when I was working in a bookstore, this kid pulled a wad of ones out of his SOCK and they was all gross and wet. ::shudder::

I use hand sanitizer after every single customer unless I have a line, then I use it when there's a break in the line. I don't get as many colds and I don't have to worry so much about where that money's been even if it's not visibly nasty...
