>> I do sometimes blow my nose in public, but only if I really have to and can't avoid going someplace else to do it. For instance, I had quite a cold last week and while in church, I had to blow my nose a few times while sitting in the pews. I was as discreet and quiet about it as possible. If I hadn't, I would of either been sitting there with a running nose, which is totally gross, or I would of been getting up very often, which would of been more disruptive to the people around me than blowing my nose. Otherwise I'll step in a corner or go into another private place to do it. I don't like seeing or hearing it with other people too, but I understand that sometimes, as in my case, it's a necessity to do it in public. <<
Understood. For what it's worth, I blow my nose in public far too much. Is 'in my cubicle at work' in public? Well, I have allergies and asthma, and that adds up to a whole lotta gunk that needs to come out. If I ran to the bathroom every time my nose needed it, I'd be fired. But I try to keep it down, and I never do it in a restaurant at the table.
Who said that their co-worker brushes at the desk? Oh ICK! You've just out-grossed me! LOL
Maybe we should start a new thread. Grossness in public.
