...or is it considered acceptable these days to share one's bodily fluids with everyone else?

I'm going to have a whinge.

I hate people sneezing and not covering their mouths.

I hate people coughing and not covering their mouths.

I hate people spitting or coughing up great big balls of green phlegm and leaving them on the pavement.

I hate people leaving their dog sh*t on the pavement.

There. I've had my moan. Am I really being all that unreasonable? Or is anyone else with me?

No not unreasonable at all. I hate all that too.

All listed above is horrid

I hate all that too, especially the doggie doo which we had to dodge this afternoon when coming home from school.

I abhor spitting - so unnecessary. Do it into a hanky if you must <prim>

yanbu bleughhhhhhhhhhh

You're definitely not being unreasonable.

It makes me so angry

Purplepillow Mon 21-Jul-08 21:48:51

I totaly agree YANBU

As a dog owner I really detest seeing dog poo left lying around, it's not the dog's fault but their LAZY owners.angry

MrsThierryHenry Mon 21-Jul-08 21:55:03

Bumper - I know! How much does a blardy tissue cost?

GodzillasBumcheek Mon 21-Jul-08 21:57:33

Does sneezing without opening your mouth count? If i can't get to a hankie quick enough...

MrsThierryHenry Mon 21-Jul-08 23:18:01

Godzilla! I suppose it depends on how much nasal 'spray' shoots out...!

Too much detail!!! <sicky green emoticon>

My ds sneezes very violently and I have told him/pleaded with him bribed him, to put his hand over his face, will he do it, will he hell. Now he gets a demerit on his reward chart if he does this. IMO it is socially unaccetable to do any of these nowadays. Mind you I haven't seen any WHITE dog shit in years.

I reckon that someone bet MrsTH that she couldn't start an AIBU thread on which not one person would tell her that she was, indeed, BU. wink

However, I cannot force myself to say that you are being even remotely unreasonable to object to all of the above, so I'll help you win your bet: YANBU!

Oh I HATE all those too - even my 3yr old knows to cover his mouth when sneezing and coughing - and the only time he gets to spit, is the toothpaste into the sink! The dog shit one really is the worst IMO because there is something in it that can cause blindness isnt there??

And whilst we're on the moan here...
I am not a cat owner, but why is it UNacceptable for a dog to shit wherever, but acceptable for a cat? Cats are not clean animals - they may be clean in your home because they don't shit there - they shit in everyone elses gardens - the previous owner of my house had a cat - just the one cat - and they left us with the worst case of fleas that our environmental health department had ever seen - filthy i tell you!

When I'm in charge, spitters will be first up against the wall.

VeniVidiVickiQV Mon 21-Jul-08 23:41:20

Not unreasonable. But, remind me never to introduce you to my DS.

Amphibimum Mon 21-Jul-08 23:45:06


no reason. just like to swim against the tide wink

MrsThierryHenry Mon 21-Jul-08 23:52:07

Ellbell - hahahahaha!

Thing is, if everyone agrees with me, why is there so much sh*t and p*ss and phlegm, etc, all over the place? Surely someone, somewhere, must think it's acceptable, right? hmm

(unless it's just Amphibimum doing her deeds all over the world?!)

zazen Mon 21-Jul-08 23:53:58

I suppose their mum's do?
I've had a lot worse from my DD!!!! grin
