What do you think? - 'yuck'/'that noise makes me want to scream', or 'it's utterly normal, get a life'?

Am trying to decide how to handle a situation so input really appreciated - posts saying just YUCK or LIFE will be accepted. Ta

I am not sure I think anything. It it such a normal and inconsequential thing that I rarely notice. Not sure how it makes a noise either.

If its someone you want to stop..get them one of those rubber things you put on your finger.

I do it - I do it when I am handing out sheets in my English lessons, so there.

To wolf - just one of those perfectly-nice but has-a-habit office-mate things - need some ammunition to persuade myself I am being neurotic about it (so artichokes's response exactly what's needed).

(A bit different from a dh with same habit, there I think I'd be entitled to mind.)

Anyway, thank you.

Just think of all the saliva residue on library books!!

cripesalorky Fri 31-Oct-08 20:28:15

you're mad to mind, in my humble opinion

I do it. I especially love doing it with the argos catalogue.

Have you read The Name of The Rose, Bink? Might give you some spurious ammo...

Unless it's a library book, then yuck.

I did once get told off in a library for turning pages too noisily. Go for the poisoned page corner, a la Name of the Rose.

Aimsmum - it makes pages do a sort of officious flicky sound.

cripesalorky Fri 31-Oct-08 20:38:47

weird - that is on the top of my pile for next book to read!

So what are you asking AIBU about? am confused, is this a poll?

TheSmallClanger Fri 31-Oct-08 21:22:36

YANBU, it really does my head in. I couldn't give you a coherent answer as to why, but it does. Why go to the bother of licking fingers!
