A bit petty I know but has been grating and grating on me! Grrr...

One of his dad's friends has just gone down with swine flu and yet he is still going around sneezing in the town, shops wherever and not covering his mouth!

Yesterday I said to him to cover his mouth because it was minging and he told me to

'F off, I hate that slimy hand thing' hmm again I said well just use a tisssue then, he then went and sneezed about 6 times and his excuse for not covering his mouth

'Well I can't cover my mouth when I sneeze because I work with food prep so what am I meant to do pt my hands all over it, well that and the slimy hand thing'

He also said he has no manners in private so why should he bothe his arse in public! angry

So yes I am being petty maybe but this has been grating on me for a week or 2 now and it's been made worse by the swine flu thing I admit but surely he is bloody old enough and works with food so should be using his elbow to sneeze into atleast but no apparently he just sneezes away! shock

You are NOT being petty. This is disgusting behaviour! Especially for someone working with food! Tell him about Typhoid Mary!

It's the same as spitting in the street - vile!

And glad it's not just me then!

I would save up a special large snotty sneeze for the next time he is eating his dinner and deliver it with some style within his personal space. That's what I'd do. Disgusting reprehensible creature and huge sympathy hugs for any girlfriend he may be astonishingly lucky to have.

Boys, honestly. A friend of mine has an issue with her adult son not bothering his arse to wash or clean his teeth. She said he had a bit of supernoodle stuck in his beard growth for over 2 days. They would grow mushrooms in their own armpits if they could get away with it.

He is my best friend who is also extremely gay and amazes me how he spends a whopping 2 hours a day washing, straightening and styling his hair yet he can't pick up a tissue for what... 6 seconds??? hmm

I think it annoyed me before but has annoyed me even now as there are 2 cases of swine flu here so far and more suspected so just seems very irresponsible and is quite blush when walking around shops with him.

I did try explaining if he gets slimy hands when he sneezes what the hell does it do when it hits people's jackets, floors, shelves whatever.

Did'nt seem to work hmm

The only solution left is this one then this Tell him it might damage his good looks but will be very efficient!

There isn't a smiley face that conveys how nasty this is, if there was I'd have posted 100 of them. YUCK
