I hate people who don't cover their mouths when they cough
I used to, Kerry. Now I'd rather walk. I do use it when the weather's particularly inclement.
But soon we'll be out in the stick where we have to drive everywhere. Aw, bummer, I'm so saddened by that .
No more old codgers using their walking sticks like truncheons to force their way up the queue, people trying to lop over into my seat and squishing me, stinking, coughing and sneezing all over everyone, pervs, drunks, neds, etc.
Our downstairs neighbour is a bus driver. He says the day crowds are actually worse behaved than the night ones.
Aw Kerrymum, I am sorry you are so ill. It is really horrible. I am terribly pathetic when sick as well. If I wasn't in the wrong country I would certainly come feed your kids and put them to bed for you!
As to your question, I HATE it when people do not cover a cough or sneeze. The worst, absolute worst, was when I commuted by bus. In the winter everyone would be coughing, and there were times when my hair actually ruffled in the breeze from the force of the coughing behind me. Made me want to vomit, smack their face off and then vomit again.
