    sorry you had to witness that...that's just NASTY!
    Come on! Would you just make an impulse sauce buy without knowing how the label tastes? That would be like buying a book without taking it into the bathroom first.

    Wait, wait....let me try another.
    I wonder how she decides on what brand of toilet paper to buy?

    This was a clear, full-on tongue slurp up the length of the label. She then held the bottle out to look at it again for a couple seconds, apparently decided it was worth purchasing, and dropped it in her cart

    Okay, here I am trying to come up with some "logical" reason she would do this.

    You know, from getting them wet or trying to remove them, some labels are nearly transparent when wet? Or some come right off and others don't? I'm a jar saver so know about this and how they clog the dish washer if they come off in there. Also some jars are just unusable because you can't get the hardened clobs of glue off.

    Perhaps she has a super sense of taste and can taste the sauce on the label? I mean the molecules in the air do sink into paper. Like keep your mouth shut in a stinky bathroom... I know too much information... but that's what I do.

    Okay... what other reasons could she have had?

    I am rendered speechless.

    I can't come up with any good reason for why she might do that short of her somehow getting the label dirty and she wants to clean it? But even then why would you lick it?

    Based on urges I've had in the past, I'd say that the edge of the label on the bottle had started to peel and she was licking it to try to smooth it out. Maybe it's some kind of OCD thing.

    It reminds me of the egg people in Clerks. Heh.

    I'm curious as to why you have only just realized that some people are wackos? Truthfully nothing much surprises me anymore.

    Really? Why?

    You seem to have a weird knife/cutting thing, so why can't this woman lick a sauce bottle?

    Please don't cut me

    Wow, that's funny. And really weird (well, obviously).

    ...and thanks to this story, I can congratulate myself on being totally normal!! ha.

    I just can't stop wondering how often she does this sort of thing and if there are others like her, what if there are hundreds of label lickers roaming the aisles just......licking things and putting them back? Oh the horror! I shop, I touch the things I intend to buy, what if they have been licked and then I have to rub my eye? They could have cooties! You don't know!
    What if I decide to innocently lick a label and it has been prelicked already? Does that make me a lesbian?

    The mind just reels with questions and possibilities.

    Also, I can't promise not to cut you, but I can promise to try.
