    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???

    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.

    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...
