Don't share your saliva

The airport car park in Dunedin, New Zealand, has posted a sign at its ticket booth politely asking its customers to refrain from holding their parking chits in their mouths before paying their parking bills.  Makes sense to me: as we all know, that was how the Black Death got started in the 14th century.

I think those people who put their cards in their mouths are just trying to express their anger at airport parking prices by surreptitiously spitting on the parking providers. Having had occasion to use airport parking twice in the last two weeks (with a further airport visit coming up this weekend), I quite understand the feeling.
