    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???

    Even In the Grocery Store

    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...

    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.
