On my last trips to Walmart and the grocery I have noticed that some of our cashiers are wearing gloves like doctors etc... wear. A man in front of me in line brought my attention to this by making some rude comments about the cashier being Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) about germs. He was shocked when I told him that studies have shown that money, esp paper money, has more germs than the inside of a public toilet. He had just handed the cashier some bills from his front pocket and stuck his hand into a bag of chips that he was munching on. The look on his face was priceless, lol! I think it is an excellent idea for people who handle $$ to wear gloves. Do you? Having worked at a convenience store in the summer, where we sold fried chicken and had TONS of construction workers who came in for lunch, I have encountered some truly disgusting money in the past. It really gripes me to have the cashier at a fast food place fix my drink or grab my fries with her hand, but you can only do so much, Know what I mean?? I do avoid certain fast food places where the cashier handle the food more than at others though. One of the cashiers who was wearing gloves is a lady I have gotten to know a little bit, to say hi to or chat a few mins. She said that her doctor recommended it because she caught everything that went around last year. At first the store tried to tell her she couldn't wear them, that it would send a bad message to the customers, but her dr sent in a letter with some info about how germy money really is and the mgr changed that rule. I don't see a lot of the cashiers wearing gloves, but it seems one or two more each week are wearing them. Would you avoid a store where the cashiers wore gloves? Or seek it out? If you handle money in your job, would you consider wearing gloves to handle the $$?
