Re: Cough rage

I am always impressed of people in here!

One side, if someone takes to much time to pack their stuff, you heard people on the forum complaining about their selfish attitude of not carring for other people's precious time,

And those same people are those who said that if they give their germs around, what is the big deal? Tough it up or stay home...

Priceless!

...Sadly, I hadnt gotten to the part on the Pimsleaur langauge tapes where they teach you to say.. Its only allergies!!!
There's a wonderful part in kerb your enthusiasm, where Ben Stiller sneezes into his hand, then go to shake hands with the main character. "It's only a dry sneeze".

I love it when babies sneeze - they always have this kind of "wtf?" look on their faces.

Re: Cough rage

We English are in fact very warm - we only have issues with being touched.

You don't think it's the individual's responsibility to make sure they wash their hands as often as is necessary? After all, there are plenty of germs floating around that don't come from coughs and sneezes...

Absolutely true! And I also believe that it is our personal responsability to not sprayed our germs either. Goes both ways.

Re: Cough rage

Crikey, this thread has taken quite the turn.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I am not in favour of spreading germs and making no effort at all to cover one's mouth when sneezing etc, but I am also against hyper hygiene la:



Ok, the youtube thing didn't work, so here's a link.
