I have had strangers tuck my tag. I'll be walking around with a tag sticking out of the neck of my blouse or dress and suddenly feel a hand on the back of my neck. This is not cool. Don't tuck my tag unless you are a friend of mine. Say "Excuse me, your tag is sticking out" and let me tuck my own damn tag.*
It's not like they reached over to zip my fly for me or adjust my bra strap or tuck my underwear back into the back of my jeans*** or picked a bit of salad greens out of my teeth (also gotta go with a big fat No on all these), but still--not appropriate.
Over-sensitive? Maybe. I just think there are things best left to the individual to deal with themselves, especially if we're talking strangers.
On a related note: Years later, the one scene I can remember clearly from the The Newlywed Game****, was, oddly enough, not whoopee related. In it, a woman admitted, and her husband confirmed, that she picked his nose for him. Because she had long fingernails. She wiggled them for the camera. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
Questions du jour: Do you want strangers tucking your tags? Do you want loved ones picking your nose?
* After all, this could be my signature style. Speaking of signature style... little known fact: Tommy Hilfiger had his favorite shirt stolen at summer camp so he decided to write TOMMY HILFIGER in huge letters across the front of all his clothes. And the rest is history.**
** You don't know, it could have happened.
*** Granny panties are still the rage, right?
**** I think Jerry Springer must recruit from the same pool of idiots that The Newlywed Game dredged. Who says "So, let me get this straight... I can go on national television and talk about the details of my sex life and who in my family my spouse hates and which of my friends my spouse wants to sleep with? Sure! That sounds like a great idea! What could go wrong with that?" *****
***** Note to self: I shouldn't really complain about The Jerry Springer Show since they just offered me a free makeover! I'm so excited!!! That sounds like a great idea! What could go wrong with that?
