Why didn’t you just say “God bless you?”

Interesting, explanations about the origins of “God bless you,” or in short, “Bless you.” date back to the first century, and are deeply rooted in SUPERSTITION.

Back then, a sneeze was sometimes thought to be the body's way of trying to rid itself of evil spirits. So, in that case, saying “God bless you” was a way to try to provide a protection, or a good luck charm, against the evil spirits leaving or inhabiting the body.

Maybe they were allergic to someone's aftershave or perfume, who was sitting too close to them. Or maybe they have the plague. Could go either way I suppose.

Was it the 1st or 2nd collection, or perhaps the " Bishops Fund " collection.

Hmm, are you suggesting the woman may have been allergic to the Bishops Fund!

That’s pretty funny.

I have many allergies, with many medicines to minimize or eliminate symptoms. Unfortunately, they don’t always work and sometimes I start hacking and blowing my nose. We all have levels we are willing to tolerate. If I get too bad, I’ll get up and leave.

I’m an avid bridge player. The Villages Duplicate Club is the second largest club in the USA. Several of our players have compromised immune systems. We don’t play if we have a cold. Four hours of fun not worth risking the health of another.

If you are sick do stay home. Common sense.

While I agree with you, I worked at several large organizations that provided incentives for "perfect attendance". And DH worked at a hospital no less and got $25 bonus for each quarter of perfect attendance.
