Many make a big mistake when shopping unnoticed. Cashiers and other customers have been annoyed by this for a long time. Apparently, a Rewe team has had enough.
Taunusstein/Berlin - An absolute bad habit of many customers has been annoying not only since the beginning of the Corona crisis: Putting deposit vouchers in your mouth is an absolute no-go! Apart from a possible risk of infection - even beyond Corona - it's just disgusting! That's why supermarkets also hang up signs again and again.
In December 2022, a corresponding photo caused a stir, posted on the Instagram page "Notes of Germany". According to the information, it was built in Taunusstein near Wiesbaden. Most likely in a Rewe store, that's what the optics indicate.
A handwritten sign hangs on the deposit machine: "Dear customers, for hygienic reasons, we ask you not to put the empties vouchers in your mouth. Thank you!" Obviously, the Rewe team had had enough, and the employees were fed up with constantly picking up customers' receipts.
Reactions were mixed. Some felt caught. "Unfortunately, I always do", "I've been doing this for years" and "Ok, I'll stick to it now. Sorry," they wrote. Another said: "Come on, if you have never resorted to this holding method in desperation with your hands full, throw the first deposit receipt."
Supermarket mistake "deposit receipt in the mouth" always causes trouble
A comparable sign ended up photographed on the Instagram page "Notes Of Berlin" as early as 2020. It reads: "For hygienic reasons, please do not put the deposit vouchers in your mouth. Thank you for your understanding."
In 2020, too, many felt addressed. "Oh Misto, I did that really often so as not to forget them," wrote one user. "Haha I thought I was alone," said another. And someone else explained: "Me too, but I've only now become aware of that."

The photo in 2020 always earned a few jokes: "The freedom to eat is endangered!" it said. "Don't touch the touchscreen with your tongue either?" quipped another. And then one noticed the "problem" with the matter: Anyone who entered a supermarket properly - as is well known, still a requirement in 2020 - with a face mask was not tempted to clamp the deposit slip between their lips anyway. "It's also difficult with the mask in front of your mouth."
Supermarket mistake "deposit receipt in the mouth" - Many still commit it
Editor's note: This text has already been published in the past. He has particularly interested many readers. That's why we're offering it again.
"I'm screaming ... Every sign is a story," one Twitter user captioned another, similar photo. And promptly, a person spoke up who, according to his own statements, had worked longer as a cashier. "I spent several years in Berlin at Kaiser's, among other things. Yes: The deposit receipt is often put in the mouth; especially when the two hands are needed to rummage in the wallet. And, of course, the classic: licking your fingers to take out individual banknotes." A supermarket customer said: "I know, I've always been disgusted when I've seen something like that." A shopping list discovered in a Kaufland causes widespread astonishment. (lin)
