I know people get colds. I know people cough and sneeze. What bothers me is when they sneeze or cough up at me when I'm ringing them up. Usually though, I can dodge out of the way.
What I can't stand is when people sneeze into their hands, and then hand me the money that was crumpled into that hand.
I don't want your booger money! But I have no choice but to take it.
It's really hard to cover up that I'm dry heaving. I try really hard, but when my eyes start watering from being so grossed out, I can't stop my natural reflexes.
Most of the time I will pick up the bills by their corners. But it's really hard to do that with coins. Usually I will tell them to set the change on the counters. Then I will spray the hell out of them with Windex.
And then, just like I figured, a few days later I get sick.
So please, if you have to sneeze, sneeze into your arm or something. Not with the hand that has the money in it.
