Default Please, folks, stay home with your germs!

On Thursday, I arrived early at the Foreign Travel Club to get a seat where I could see the presentation well.

Before the beginning of the program, a person sat down beside me and proceeded to cough, sneeze and blow his nose. It was disgusting. I got up and took a seat in the back of the room to escape his germs. Maybe I should have said something to him, but he looked like the type who might become very angry.

How old do people need to be to have consideration for others and stay home until they’re well? It was close quarters. No telling how many people he infected.

Please keep your germs at home.

When I was in business, I sent home employees who were sick-- I said " that's what your sick days are for"--yes my employees had sick days, profit sharing, and health benefits

This morning in church, the young woman sitting behind us sneezed, coughed and blew her nose throughout mass. Even if she suffers from allergies, it is certainly would have been more sanitary if she had stayed home.

I have a mask, charcoal filter etc light grey very inconspicuous. Can wear if someone else has a cold or if I have a cold. It also filters out odors. If I really don’t want people to notice I drape a very light scarf around my neck and hide it. On planes or anywhere. I figure it’s easier to change myself than everyone else.

One time I got on a plane with a cold and put a doctor’s type mask on before the plane took off. We were waiting and waiting and the plane was a good hour late when the crew finally approached me because I looked ‘suspicious.’

You should have said “God bless you” as any good Christian would.

Each to their own. I don't think being considerate is related to age - maybe an inverse relationship..

Personally, I don't mind people sneezing and coughing around me. I look at it as vitamin supplements for my immune system.

If I am sick, I try to stay out of the public places, since I know a lot of people (most?) tend to not like to have bugs shared with them. But, I don't mind being on the receiving end.
