Coughing Courtesy

I am a bit of a germaphobe and my number one pet peeve is when people cough or sneeze without covering their mouths. This has been an issue that has bothered me for years now, and it still boggles my mind why people do not practice polite coughing/sneezing etiquette. Especially when you’re in a crowded place or on public transit (those poles can get nasty!).

For the sake of those around you, please cough or sneeze into your elbow. Don’t cough into your hands and definitely, definitely, don’t cough into midair. Sure you may be healthy and have a harmless cough, but when in close proximity with others, we’ll appreciate a covered cough.

What are your pet peeves?

  1. Pet peeves, hmm definitely crowd rudeness, just because people are in a rush, unlikely to see passerbys again and can get away with it is no excuse for being an a*se on public transport or on the street. I also hate the way people at as if homeless people and pigeons are vermin or don’t exist, just walking straight through/past them.
