    Even In the Grocery Store

    I'm looking at shampoo the other day and the stockboy behind me sneezes.  Without even missing a beat, I say "Bless You".  He turns around, and gives me this look, like I'm some sort of crackpot, and says, "What??". Is this like a dead saying? ...

    I Do Not Even ...

    ... think about it anymore. It is now just a habit which has developed. If I hear someone sneeze, regardless of the venue, I always say bless you. I also say "Excuse me" when I sneeze, even when I am alone. It is just a good habit which has developed.

    Reflex

    I was raised to always say "bless you" to sneezers, so by now it is purely reflexive.  And anyway, who couldn't use an extra bit of blessing???

    When Someone's Sputtering, Spitting, Runny Nosed, Suffering . . . It's the Least I Can Do

    I know I don't have to, of course.  But it's such a small, effortless courtesy.  A little kindness never hurt anyone, especially if that someone who's hacking and sneezing is suffering from a bad cold.  They might appreciate that you noticed and sympathized with...

    It's very impolite. Didn't your parents teach you to always say thank you, your welcome, and please?? I always end up saying "your welcome" if someone never says thank you to me.

    All the time. Someone asks "How are you?" and I immediately respond "Okay." or "Good." simply because it's what I'm used to saying even if I'm not having a good day.
