Tonight, someone I was having a conversation with began to pick his nose. Then he began to eat it. It went on for a while, until I ended the conversation by leaving the room. This is a person I feel a bit sorry for, but wtf?!


This an adult I'm talking about.

Someone I live with picks his nose in public (but is disgusted by people who eat it). I have started offering him a tissue whenever he does it, I hope he gets the hint

Jen (a.k.a. IamJen) told me she'd seen a woman do this in the waiting room at our local medical centre. Utterly disgusting. It's perhaps easier to do something about it if it's someone you know - like yally suggested, offer them a tissue!

Well, it's probably the "eating" thing that I have the most problem with.

Picking your nose doesn't disturb me in the slightest though.

I wonder why people DO eat it? Seems almost like a Pica type of thing. GROSS. Then again I suppose it's better than picking your butt and eating it?

Offering a tissue is a good idea because the look on his face made me think he thought he was getting away with it. Even though he did it repeatedly over 5 or 10 minutes, he did it quickly, like he thought I wouldn't notice. Offering a tissue is a good way to let him know that I know. *gag*

The thing is, I know I must have had a repulsed look on my face because I was repulsed. I AM repulsed.

I did not know any adults ate their boogers. I remember giving kids sh*t about it when I was a kid because I thought it was disgusting. Never thought I'd have to deal with it after I left elementary school, though!

Some people don't have a good concept of what is socially acceptable. Try to be nice about it and not make it a big deal if you do say or do something about it..
