Dilemma thread


#1

You’re in a toilet cubicle. There’s someone in an adjacent cubicle. You don’t know who it is. They sneeze. Do you say bless you?

  • No, it violates the quiet sanctity of the cubicle
  • Yes, I’m not being responsible for someone’s soul escaping ffs
  • No, but I never say it anyway
  • Smart-arse “gesundheit” option for @marckee

Find it really uncomfortable saying ‘bless you’ team I sit with at the moment no one ever says it, it’s great

#5

If someone says bless you, then I have to say thank you, and that’s already far too much like having a conversation for my liking.


#6

If I’m in the toilet at home and my wife asks me something through the door I refuse to answer as I don’t converse when on the toilet, so no, I wouldn’t say bless you.


#7

“you alright in there, it’s been 45 minutes?”

“…”


#8

if I spoke to someone who was in the bathroom and they didn’t answer I would worry that they’d passed out or died


#9

or maybe they respect the sanctity of the toilet mate! If I’ve died, it will all come out in the wash eventually. Just leave me be!


#10

sometimes I just go to the toilet to get away from it all and so she will try and deduce if I am in there on official business by quizzing me


#11

I do hate when people I live with bother me while I’m in the bathroom. Like we live together, we see each other practically all day every day, give me ten minutes of peace.


#12

I’d freak out if someone else in another toilet cubicle said anything to me


#13

DiS has made me cackle on the toilet before and I realised I must seem like a fucking maniac


#14

“hey mate, how is it today?”


#15

Saying “bless you” seems wrong at all times because I’m an atheist. When someone sneezes I say nothing or, if it seems necessary, offer them a tissue. If they’re in a toilet cubicle, they have access to tissue already.


#16

I never say bless you in any situation unless they look like they’re going to kick off cause somebody hasn’t said it.


#17

like a guy at work looked visibly annoyed after he sneezed the other day and said “bless you” to himself sarcastically


#18

If i sneezes in a toilet and someone said bleas you, I’d think they were a complete oddball


#19

Bleas you


#20

Usually just say “You’re so good looking”
