Do you know what's annoying


#1

When people say “bless you” after you sneeze. You then have to acknowledge the bless you and give a needless thanks, usually while trying to clean yourself up

Stop it


#2

if they don’t say bless u ur soul escapes forever and u have no soul


#3

never say bless you, feel really bad and rude not saying it but just can’t bring myself to do it, just feels weird


#4

I thought it was coz sneezing meant the devil had got into you


#5

the four people I sit with are similarly awkward, there can be a lot of sneezing going on and no one says anything, its pretty good


#6

at some point in my life I got it in my head that if you say thank you or acknowledge the person saying bless you, the blessing doesn’t work


#7

Nah, it’s just a pleasant and polite thing to do. No problem with it at all.


#8

think it’s both? you sneeze, your soul escapes, and then the devil can come in?


#9

I endorse this thread. And as a hayfever sufferer this can be a LIVING HELL.


#10

Just sneezed after reading this thread FYI.


#11

It’s incredibly rude to say thank you after a bless you

#18

Not sure


#19

My former flatmate always used to say “bless me” to himself after he sneezed. He hardly believed me at all when I said that’s not the standard thing.
