I frequently get questions about PIN Code Hunting.

Do you wear gloves?

No. I do not use gloves, as labels and tabs require fine dexterity. Plus, that’s what soap and water are for. I give my hands a good wash when I get home. If my hands are particularly sticky, I also keep baby wipes in my car.

Does anyone bother you?

My usual answer is, “No.” If spoken to, it’s to ask me what I am doing (of course, they are fascinated) or to tell me they have no bottles and cans. When I respond, I am not looking for them; I am met with confusion. Once in a while, I get confronted.

No spoiler alerts here. Just watch the video below. It’s only five minutes and, I think, hilarious.

Isn’t what you are doing illegal?


Special thanks to Angelina for forwarding me the tweet after she saw the video.

You are braver than I am.


What do you have to lose? (Except for weight! I take 7500-10000 steps in a typical morning, and it’s cheaper than the gym!)

What are you afraid of?

Is it being confronted? I have been, and it’s funny. Not scary at all.

Have you ever been confronted?
