i know a woman who picks her nose whilst driving, and wipes it on the front of her seat. she laughed when i saw her do this, and said she always does it in the same place, then picks them off when they dry. aibu to think this is a bit ming?

That is gross.

When I was a kid I used the back of my bedstead. It all went swimmingly until we moved house and my mother discovered the many layers of bogies. I can still remember her rage and it would have been pushing 40 years ago.

ha ha - no it's not me. and neither do i drive her car either. although i feel i can't be too high and mighty about it, as my car is no bed of roses. i just think it's a little bit weird....

when i moved ds1 bedroom i also found his bogey stash. it's more acceptable for a teenage boy somehow. dunno why.....

Disgusting. Anything like that makes me feel physically sick. I got an email the other day about a bogey picker - an actual real life invention that lets parents pick their child's noses so they can breathe easier. It put me off my food all day. I'm going to have to toughen up in preparation for when our bubb arrives.

cupcakebakerer, I wish I could tell you that you feel different about your own child's snot. You don't - I don't, anyway. I can cope with poo and puke and vomit, but kids' snot is just vile. Steel yourself.

and what a waste might I add.....

Surely you have to get used to snot. Toddlers are so often snotty.

hester Sat 20-Nov-10 23:05:30

Tell me about it, both dds have just had three colds in a row. I will never get used to it, never grin

oh dear cupcakebaker - it's bloody terrible when they start mixing with other dc's. snot central. my personal snot phobia is based around the build up from dc wiping sideways. a kind of pacific ridge builds up across the cheek in layers >gags<

On my God! What the hell am I going to do? One friend smiled serenly when I regaled her with the bogie picker story and said she sucks them out. What the hell have I let myself in for?

oh that miniature turkey baster thingy... actually quite like the sound of them. baby snot is a different issue for me. i remember being driven to near insanity by singular 'whistlers' up the snout of otherwise snot free babes... a sucky baster thing would have stopped me trying with my tweezers.......
