I've come to think that I'm the only one who finds this inappropriate. There's this fellow in the same office as me, and every now and again I'm delighted with the melodic sound of mucus forcefully coming out of his nostrils. Lovely.

I've also noticed that people sometimes do it in restaurants too, while sitting near people who are eating. What the hell? Go to the bathroom, asshole/bitch! Why is this acceptable? Why not wipe our asses in public as well, while we're at it?

Opinions?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

You know what sounds even worse than blowing your nose?


Bitching.

Everyone blows their nose from time to time, and I don't see why hearing someone else do something you do yourself is such a big deal.
It doesn't even produce a smell or anything, like farting does.

In public it's ok but I'd rather you didn't at the dinnertable.

Whine, whine, whine. And more whining.

Blowing your nose is natural, and although the sound of it isn't pleasant, only a spoiled and faint-hearted kid could compare it to wiping your ass in public. I see nothing wrong with blowing your nose in public unless it's five times per minute. Do you really think people should hide? Most of the time, you can't even control it.

Quit bitching, bro.

It's only acceptable in a washroom. I don't want to hear you blowing your nose, and neither does any one else.

Agreed.

Also the farmer's blow is the most offensive way to blow your nose.

I just find it rude and disruptive when I'm concentrating on work and someone does it 3 meters away from me.

Oh please. From a social etiquette point of view I don't think the comparison is so far-fetched.

well, have you told him that it bothers you?

EDIT: of course, it also depends on the kind of blow.

If it's a soft "pfffft" into a tissue, I don't see the problem.

However, when it sounds like this:



I can see your problem if it's done constantly.

Let's see... no smell, no nudity involved, hard to refrain, often linked to a sickness like the flu, or allergies.

Yet, it is far-fetched.

The what now?

Is that where you press one nostril with the finger, and blast the mucus out the other with a sharp snort?



Yup. Highly disgusting when aimed.

Yeah it's like a vuvuzela, but with the added bonus of gross mucus.

Anatomically there is a difference, but socially, not that much.

And if it's hard to refrain, go to the goddamn bathroom.

You wouldn't fart in public, you wouldn't burp in public, you wouldn't pick wax out of your ears in public, blowing your nose is in the same zip code (or was it "in the same ballpark"?).

Well, grow a pair then.

J/k, I'm only messing with you.

I don't agree, but it can definitely be annoying, I'll give you that. I'm blowing my nose right now, by the way.

What are they supposed to do? Wipe drips on their sleeves? Keep loudly sniffing it back up there? Quit whining.

Do you really expect him to go to the bathroom every time he needs to blow his nose? If one had a cold, one would have to spend at least 50% of the time in the bathroom.

TS, that's ridonkulous.

I've nothing against it, although I can't help but get either irritated or amused when this one bloke in my History course does it. I use to sit behind him, and once he managed to block out every sound in the room, including the teacher's voice, for a full ten seconds with his foghorn-like blowing.

Took me a good minute to be able to follow the conversation again, both because I was stifling a hysteric laughing fit and also because I hadn't the foggiest what the teacher had said in that span of time.
If I took this cigarette and put it out on you...


...would you love me?

It's better than having to listen to them sit there sniffing constantly.

Quit yo' bitchin', foo'.

None of which will work.
