Boobs are not pockets!

Have you ever worked a cash register somewhere, and had a woman reach down into her cleavage and pull out a wad of bills wet with boob sweat and hand them to you? That happens to me a lot where I work, and I find it DISGUSTING. Money is dirty to start with, but money wet with some womans boob sweat in the middle of a southern summer is even more disgusting. Then you're stuck at the register and not allowed to go wash your hands. That is why I carry hand sanitizer in my apron pocket at work now. But, why do women use their boobs as a place to store money, and goodness knows what else? Why not just put it in the monster purses they carry, or in a pants pocket like I do?

Yes, I work at a store also and have seen this. Worse is when the kids come in and pull money out of their smelly sweaty sox! The money literally does smell like a dirty locker room!!

Its funny, but sock money doesn't gross me out as much as boob money.

Have you never smelled it?

Nope. Touching money is gross enough, I've never had the urge to sniff it.

People put money in a lot of weird places. I was in line at the cash register once and saw a man take off his shoe and pull out some money inside his socks and hand it to the cashier. I think people have a right to put their money where ever they want to. Money is supposed to be dirty anyways. Homeless people could have touched it, it could have been on the ground, it could have been anywhere basically. I've seen some cashiers wear gloves so they don't have to touch the money they handle. I think that's pretty smart.

Sock money doesn't bother me as much as wet boob money for some reason. Money really is very filthy. I've tried weaing gloves at work, but a lot of stuff we sell will snag on the gloves so it didn't work out.

hinonersays ugh ugh. oh my I would hate to be a cashier and have wet money from book sweat handed to me. good thing you carry hand sanitizer for sure. I wonder that too as it would get so gross and also I would think would be most uncomfortable. I carry a bill fold in my purse, and my money is nice and dry. he he he.

I think that they are afraid of it being stolen? I do think that its gross as well. I personally be embarrassed to pull wet money out from anyplace. Maybe they cant find there money when they place it in their purse and as for the pockets, it might come out as they walk. I think that if a woman has to put it in a bra then they should at least put it in a plastic baggie so as to not soak it with their boob sweat.

Sadly, if someone REALLY wanted their money I doubt boobs would stop them. In fact, it might just be an added incentive for some robbers.

Ewwwwww! I don't envy you. The only time I put anything there is when I'm getting gas and I don't have any pockets, I will put my credit card there. I don't have enough "there" to trust it to hold anything, besides I quit wearing a bra (I wear camisol bras instead, at my age I quit trying to impress anyone), everything is sliding southwards. Yeah, I'd keep hand wipes with me if I were you. Ewwwww! Now I can't get that picture out of my head!

I know what you mean it's pretty gross.. but I must admit that when I am drunk I for some reason wake up the next morning with money falling out of my bra... but I think it's just cause I need a place to store it and ain't think straight... but I never go to a register or anything with it there.. it's only when I am drunk.. Sad but true

Hmmm, maybe if you're drunk you'd been dancing on the table and people were stuffing the money in your bra for you. lol....as long as you're not handing money from your bra to sales people I won't hold it aganst you.

I haven't seen the women in my country to do with money before. I don't think it would be very sanitory for someone to do. Because you don't know what kind of oils the person can get from the sweat of being inside the cleavage of the woman. I am lucky to not have to deal with it on a regular basis.

Hhaha, yeah. I see this all the time. I know some girls who use that place for bus tickets and cell phones and the such alike! I will admit that I have done it my share in life. I didnt always have a pant pocket or purses or anything like that so that's where Id put it when I biked ot school or something so I wouldnt lose it. I dont find it neccessary however when the woman HAS a purse with her and still pulls the cash out of her bra. Unnesseccary but whatever. Some people just do it anyways, whether for attention or use or some other weird reason. Its really gross that those are the conditions you have to work under and I feel for you, but in reality you just have to push through the gross stuff and get the job done. Good idea with the hand sanitizer in your apron pocket! Especially good if you work at a grocery store or anywhere where food or soemthing similar is being handled for both your health, the customers health and anyone else who may wander through the germs.

Thankfully I don't work with food, if so I might have to have more than hand sanitizer!

Its nice to know you don't use your boobs for storage. I know a lot of women who keep their cell phone there. Thats not quite as icky to me, I guess since I'm not going to be handling their cell phones.

I also wondered about this many times. Uneducated women in my country do that. They alsways keep their small purse, money, and sometimes their mobile in that place. It is dangerous to keep the mobile there. According to them it is a very safe place and no pick-pocket person will take their money away. These women don't find it disgusting to take the money out from there in public. It is disgusting.

i see old women (as in grannies) do that. i guess it's a way of keeping it more secure from thieves and in the past they are use to wear skirt with no pockets, i mean maybe in our country. i respect their choice of doing that but now in the present it's kinda disgusting to see

I've never had older women do it. It always seems to be the middle aged women.
