    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...

    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? ...
