She Hid WHAT in her Sock?
On what planet do people think it's okay to keep their loose change and dollar bills hidden inside of a sock?
That's normally okay if the sock is located in your sock drawer.
What's not okay is when said sock is actually on your foot and you have to pull it off to retrieve your money!
I had this happen (yet again) to me yesterday.
"That'll be $3.31 please," I said sleepily.
"Sure, no problem," the woman said as she bent down. I figured she had placed her purse on the ground or something and was bending down to pull money out of it. No so. "Let me just get the money out of my sock," she stated.
I watched as she peeled the sock off of her sweaty foot and put a bunch of equally sweaty change on the counter. Then she looked up at me. Apparently it was my job to sort through her smelly change and count it all out.
I don't know if she got offended or not, but I ended up walking in the back room really quick to grab some latex gloves.
I put those on and started counting her change. She didn't say anything to me and ended up walking out after I completed her purchase.
I wasn't trying to be a smart-ass or anything by putting the gloves on. I WAS however, trying to prevent athlete's foot or some other possible fungus from attaching to my face.
I just honestly don't get how people think doing this is okay. Why should a cashier have to touch foot money??
Please tell me no one reading this has ever done such a thing.
