    Default Wal-mart: You lick it, you buy it

    The inhabitants of the town where I work are beginning to disturb me much more than I'm comfortable with. You may recall the sock girl incident I relayed earlier. That particular incident transpired in a Subway store located inside Wal-mart.

    Today, I'm in that same Wal-mart to grab something to nuke for lunch. As I'm walking down an aisle, I see a woman with a cart full of groceries, contemplating a bottle of barbecue sauce she's holding in her hand. Very typical looking 40-something woman, there to do her grocery shopping just like everyone else. As she's standing there perusing the label on this bottle of BBQ sauce, she suddenly brings the bottle up to her face, and licks the label. I was only a few feet away, and had a very good view from the side of her and the bottle, and there was absolutely no ambiguity about what I saw. She didn't just sniff the label, and I thought possibly she licked it, or anything like that. 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. Then she continued on down the aisle with her cart.

    I don't even know how to process this. It's just one of those things that has no appropriate place in which to file it in my brain. I'm thinking maybe I just won't.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    Well, at least she purchased it and didn't put it back on the shelf.

    How odd! If she hadn't put it in her cart would you have informed the mgr? I'm one of those who uses the alcohol wipes on my hands and cart handle so seeing that would really upset me. Well, then I would have gone through my usual process and thought about the fact that someone could have wiped their drippy nose with their hand, picked up something on the shelf and put it back.

    Yes, but who knows how many other brands/flavors she licked before deciding on that one.

    Maybe, but can you imagine the conversation with the manager?

    Maybe sock girl was hoping someone would lick her socks? It all makes sense now.
