I do speak up on occasion if a person dealing with the public (i.e. cashier) is eating nuts on the job . . . I don't all the time, but sometimes I do.
I have approached people eating peanuts and/or nuts and or donuts in study areas in the library where no food is allowed. I leave carrot-stick munchers and coffee drinkers be, however [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I [i]hate[/i] people who chew ice. I give them the [i]evil eye[/i].
It's the single most repulsive thing I've ever encountered.

awwwwwwwwwww. [i]we love you[/i]. Seriously. I grab that little mini cup of joe from the machine in our store too. (it's free). I just don't use the creamer and sugar (gross--gross-gross). I only grab a bakery sample if my cubs aren't with me, and it's [i]new and fresh[/i].
But never, never, NEVER chew ice around me.
Seriously. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

All the better to bring the groceries home in, my dear.

Guilty.
But can't be the [i][b]single most[/i][/b] respulsive thing. I can think of lots more. Like smacking bubble gum is [i]much, much worse.[/i]

I'm going to go with Corvallis Mom on this one (as if I didn't for so many things). As a society we [b]have[/b] pushed the limits way too far out there for eating in public. Way.
I have said and will continue to say something to people who are affecting my DS. These situations are typically in theatres where we've paid dearly for our seats, and people really, really, really should not be snacking. Goodness. DS had an airborne reaction at a ballet performance, and I turned around and gave the peanut M&M mucher the evil eye. I also tried to buy up all the peanut M&Ms before the next performance (DS was in the 1st act of this performance).
When people are really not supposed to be eating and there are signs asking them not to and their eating peanut products interferes with our intended purpose, there eating get trumped. Sorry.
Now, at places like the rodeo or the circus when we try to go, we just expect to move. We don't expect people to not eat peanuts because we're there. We wipe off the seats (and the backs, too--they're yucky with peanut), take a cover for the seat, dose DS up, he wears long sleeves--and we know we'll have to move a few times. But we tend to pick nosebleed seats for those occasions so we have more freedom.
At Target I probably wouldn't say something. But if the cashier in my line were snacking on peanuts, you better bet I'd move to another line, and I'd say why. They need to be aware of these things, and folks aren't going to think of it on their own.

no, [i]cracking[/i] gum is. It's just so [i]deliberate[/i].
Anywhoo. People aught learn that if it's moist, and entering or leaving a body cavity, it should be done in [i]private[/i], or at least not audible. don't get me started on people who snap their fingernails.

Ew, ew, ew. Yes. And people who [i]clip their fingernails[/i] in public. That's horrendous. When I hear that little [i]clip[/i] sound, I almost throw up. I knew someone who did it in (yes) meetings (wasn't in one I called). The limits are too far out there indeed.
