“Jaw With John” – Snot Appropriate To Blow Your Nose At The Table

“Could you please explain why so many people blow their noses at the supper table? You would think older folks would know better, but it seems like they are the worst offenders. I see a lot of this in restaurants or the cafeteria. I not only consider it rude but also gross.

Why can’t people excuse themselves from the table and leave the room to do it? I generally go to the ladies room or, if I’m home, go into another room. My mother and brother do this — and it’s disgusting! What is your view on this? Maybe you could teach some of these folks some manners. — Grossed Out In Florida

Dear Grossed Out,

“Supper”?!? C’mon bruh! It’s called dinner!

Yeah, it’s gross. Sometimes you can’t help but blow your nose at the table, like just after a sneeze or if it’s a sneeze with a lil’ snot coming out. But if you can help it, you better take it outside, to the bathroom, or somewhere that’s NOT the dinner/breakfast/lunch table.

“Jaw With John” – Veggies Are Gross

Today, while shopping in the produce section of the grocery store, I saw a man pushing a shopping cart. He pulled out a handkerchief and gave his nose a big, productive blow with both hands.

Without stopping to de-germ his hands, he proceeded to push the cart over to the lettuce section and handled several heads of lettuce, with both hands, before selecting the one he wanted.

I was disgusted. Not only did this man touch the shopping cart handle with his germy hands (a cart that others would use throughout the day), but he also touched food that other customers, including myself, were going to buy.

I wanted to say something to him but didn’t know if I should. Would you have said something? If so, what? — Disgusted Shopper

Dear Disgusted:

If you hadn’t seen him do it you still would’ve walked right over there and picked up a head of lettuce, taken it home and washed it anyway. Right? I mean, that’s what your supposed to do with produce. It’s not super clean when it’s picked, shipped, packaged, unboxed and then placed in the store so it’s your job to take it home and wash it.You just witnessed the #1 reason to wash your produce at home.

The stores do provide the disinfecting wipes for the shopping carts so you can AND SHOULD wipe down your cart, if you’re not doing so already.

“Jaw With John” – Snot Your Problem, It’s Theirs

Is it polite to blow your nose at the table? Would it be wrong of someone to ask a person not to do that while people are eating?

I am having a major blowup at my house over this. Please settle! — Grossed Out

Dear Grossed:

It’s not polite. Sometimes people sneeze without warning (like myself, because I have seasonal allergies) but if someone is sick or has a stuffy nose and is constantly blowing it around their food and yours, then it’s high time you blew them a little GTFO and tell then to do it away from the table.

Who in your family says it’s OK to blow your nose at the table while people are eating? WTF is wrong with their noses? If I’m inhaling a lot of mucus and snot and my mom can hear it she sternly tells me to “Blow it”. So I get up, reach for the tissues and blow my nose AWAY FROM THE TABLE! I suggest you tell your family members something similar.
