A Rewe sign from Hesse is once again causing a stir and shaking the head. Was that really necessary? Apparently so.
Taunusstein – There are always bizarre signs to be discovered in the supermarket, even handwritten ones. For example, the note on a number of Aldi shopping carts once caused a stir – for which there was probably quite a justification. For months now, a handwritten note in a transparent sleeve has been gaining greater fame. It is said to be hanging in a Rewe store in Taunusstein (Hesse), although this has not been officially confirmed.
As early as December 2022, a photo was posted on the Instagram page "Notes Of Germany" and has since received more than 1,400 likes and numerous astonished comments. Something similar is now happening on Reddit. Another picture has landed there, it is apparently the same sign, but a different shot. It is possible that another Rewe customer also discovered the note and also picked up his mobile phone.

The note reads: "Dear customers, for hygienic reasons, we ask you not to put the empties in your mouth. Thank you!" The Rewe team probably didn't know how to help themselves in any other way to take action against sloppy slips of paper. And indeed, it is not the first sign of this kind to cause a stir.
Reddit users are also scratching their heads. "There's a story behind every sign. Honestly, I don't know if I want to hear this story," writes one. Another thinks he has to enlighten: "The story is quite simple. People have their hands full, pieces of paper are put between their lips and then packed up again when their hands are free. I've seen it more than once." This also answers the question of whether the sign is really necessary.

Rewe sign on Reddit: Alleged ex-supermarket employee also speaks out
There are also several users who, according to their own statements, work in a supermarket or have once been, such as this: "I also worked in the supermarket once and can confirm that. I also always found the people who licked their thumbs, took a bill out of their wallets and pressed it into my hand were super disgusting." Another is fundamentally suspicious of the vending machines: "With these deposit machines, I always have the feeling of getting herpes if I'm standing too close to them."

Another consumer feels a bit caught: "To be fair, when my hands are too full to pack things away properly, I often put things like receipts or my bank card between my lips. I just don't want to put it down at the checkout ... But with things that someone else has to touch again? Ugh." Speaking of deposit machines: What does the "50 Euro Beer" ad at Rewe actually mean?
