VERY interesting Email that was forwarded to me


I used to work for an envelope company. Our plant supervisor used to
work in the Chicago plant and told us not to lick the envelopes because they
would often find dead rats at the bottom of the glue barrel (after thousands
of envelopes had been glued and shipped). EEWW!
I work in a factory and we have 2 employees who used to work in an
envelope factory. They told me that when the machine jams up, they use whatever water is handy to thin out the glue. This includes water that they just
mopped the floor with. Since then, I’ve avoided licking envelopes…

    1.) If you lick your envelopes... You won't anymore!!! A woman was
 working in a post office in California. One day she licked the envelopes and
postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day the lady cut her tongue on the envelope. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her> tongue. She went to the doctor, but they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to swell
more, and it began to get so sore, that she could not eat.  She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!! There were roach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva. It was warm and moist... 
~~~~~~~~~~~This is a true story reported on CNN. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

wouldn't believe the things that float around in those gum applicator trays. 
I haven't licked an envelope for years!" 
     3.) To All: I used to work for a print shop (32 years ago) and we were
told  NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why until I had to go
into  storage and pull out 2500 envelops that were already printed for a
customer who  was doing a mailing and saw several squads of roaches roaming around inside a  couple of boxes with eggs everywhere. 

They eat the glue on the envelopes. I  think print shops have a harder time controlling roaches than a restaurant. I always buy the self-sealing type. Or if need be, I use a glue stick to seal one  that has the type of glue that needs to be wet to stick. 

PLEASE PASS THIS ON, if you like TO YOUR FRIENDS. After reading 

this you will never lick another envelope or stamp ever again. 
~~~~Have a nice day, & keep your tongues where they belong!~~~~~~~~~


i’ve read that before… i guess it didn’t scare me becasue i just licked an envelope today… I think its an Urban Legend :smiley:


I can kind of believe the part about the egg hatching though be cause I see roaches nearly every day and some of the conditions they live in and it just seems like a mouth or a tongue would be like a 5 star roach motel.


:o Damn! That’s a trip. We started using the self stick kind about a year ago. I use to lick envalopes all the time, but not anymore…yet I still eat fast food, go figure. :wtf
