View Full Version : "If I sneeze right now, would you push me away?"

Whenever you sneeze around your friends, classmates, etc., do you turn the other way?
That being said, do you say "bless you" whenever someone else is sneezing?

Well, when its with someone I know well, I just cover my mouth/nose. When its with a family member (especialy my younger bro) I cover my mouth/nose and turn away so they don't catch anything. If I sneeze infront of my dad, he goes "Bless ye!"... lol. If someone else sneezes infront of me. I just pretend I didn't notice.

When I sneeze I cover my mouth nose area and wash my hands, that's about it. If I don't have an area to wash my hands in, I usually use a tissue, or think "Ewww" if I don't have one. XD As for if someone else sneezes, I usually say "Bless you".

When I sneeze, I just turn away sneeze into the inside of my elbow, that way, if I'm doing something with my hands, I won't get it contaminated =p People say bless you, but not all the time. I say it whenever I get the chance =p

Naw, I pull one of my arms over my face, to the extent that I sneeze onto my elbow or thereabouts; of course, because the (previously?) advised practice sneezing onto one's hands is unhygienic. I only fully turn away if I'm preparing food.
Given the comeabouts for the phrase 'bless you', I've no reason to say it so don't.

I sneeze into my armpit regardless.
I turn/lean to fart, though.

I sneeze in my shirt.
And I look up before I sneeze, so people are prepared. ;D

Yes, when I sneeze I turn away. And yes I say bless you when someone else sneezes.

I sneeze into my elbow and turn away.. I try to warn people though because I sound funny when I sneeze.

I always turn away/cover myself when I or another person sneezes. I don't want to get sneezed on and no one else does either so it's just polite.
Sometimes I say gesundheit to people when they sneeze, but not often.

I just say bless you. XD
My friend though... well, it was a one time thing, but this is what he did:
This white kid sneezes. My friend just goes like "Yo!" and grabs a random milk carton. Then he puts it on the floor and stomps on it. It blows up on some other kids bookbag, and that kid hits my friend on the head. Hilarious. xD

Typically I turn away from what I'm doing, especially at work. I'm trying to at least aim for my shoulder instead of the middle of nowhere. ^^;; I have some awfully bad habits.
99% of the time I'll say "bless you", it's just a habit these days. I'll yell it if someone in another room sneezes and I hear it.

Because I'm such a formal and polite person, I will almost always(well usually always) say "bless you" when someone sneezes. It's proper etiquette, y'know. :(
And yes, I definitely turn the other way. Adding on to that, I find people who don't cover their mouths while sneezes really nasty. >>;

I always sneeze into my upper sleeve. The fabric dries the germs out quickly so they can't spread.
I always say 'Bless You'. Just that nice. n________________n

I just sneezed after reading the topic title. .____.;
I always cover my mouth/ nose, unless I'm holding something. When I can't, I turn away and control the sneeze so it comes out as lots of small ones rather than one big one. + I always say 'bless you'. :3

I say "bless you" automatically when someone sneezes. When I sneeze I turn and cover my mouth.

I cover my mouth when sneezing sometimes. I normally say "bless you" when someone sneezes.
