In front of me was this little girl, and she had to be around 10-12 years old. Well when she turned to look around she was sucking on her thumb. I felt sick to my stomach(don't know why but I think that is disgusting) I think after a certain age sucking your thumb is not cute anymore. Then she started to rub on her dad's ears while she did that, I was like WTF. 

Why was I looking at her you might ask? she was right in front of me and I can't keep looking up at the ceiling for a whole hour. lol

She might have an issue and sucking her thumb helps.

I knew a girl in HS who sucked her thumb until 15, then her parents made her get these special braces that had something on them that poked her everytime she tried to suck her thumb.

I had a friend in HIGH SCHOOL who did that, that is definitely not a good look.

A thumb is a lot harder to break then a binky. You can take a binky away, but you can't cut off their thumb. Also she might have been younger then you thought she was. Either way she was too old to be sucking in her thumb. She also could have had some problems that you just can't tell by looking at her. To each their own.

Thankfully my kids were never thumbsuckers. It's disgusting to me too. Probably because I had two close cousins (brother and sister) that sucked their thumbs well into their teenaged years.

And no, they don't have "issues."
