Currently sitting on a train and the woman next to me is sniffing. Awful loud big hucking sniffs, you know the type that you hear wet phlegm being pulled up the nose which she then audibly swallows envy <- not envy

AIBU to offer her a tissue as I think I might just lose the plot if it doesn’t stop!

A tissue doesn't sound adequate.
Imagine the blow

Oh yuck! How awful envysad

YANBU, it is entirely acceptable to offer a tissue in those circumstances.

OMG, I was just about to offer it to her when she pulled out a pack of tissues! Dabbed at her nose and is continuing to sniff. WTF do people do this?!

Embarrassed to blow?
Snot travelling down the nose and afraid not to be be able to mop up properly.
