You So Nasty!

Posted: December 10, 2011 in medical, storytelling

I absolutely cannot stand nasty people! I think it should be legal to slap someone (as long as it’s above the eyebrows) because some people don’t have home training and need a jolt of a life lesson every now and then.

Now, I know you’re wondering, “what is his definition of ‘nasty’?” A homeless person? A porn star? Snooki?

No, I’m talking these two people in particular: Don’t Wash Hands After Using Bathroom Guy and Don’t Cover Your Mouth When You Sneeze Guy.

Today, I’m just going to discuss the latter since it’s winter time and everyone has the sniffles. I’m in the doctor’s office a couple of weeks ago and I’m chilling in the waiting room. There’s a man, two seats over from me, who was wearing short sleeves, no jacket, on a crisp, cold morning. He kept sniffing, which was distracting me from tweeting on my phone. I kept glancing up at the man wondering how someone that has a constant sniff is too dumb to put on something warm. Then it happened… All of a sudden, without covering his mouth, this dude let out the loudest, sloppiest, wettest sneeze!

I could see the particles floating in the room after this nasty buzzard sprayed his sinuses. Now, given that I’m older, I tend to speak my mind rather than hold my peace these days. Ten years ago, I would have not said a word, but not “Older Q.” He’ll say anything! So, before I knew it, I was barking at the man. “Dude!,” I started, “What’s wrong with you? Cover your mouth!”

There was an awkward moment of silence in the room as he glared at me, but there was one other person in the room. An older woman sitting off in the corner. She broke the silence, without looking up, with a mumbling statement, “You so nasty.”

I returned the glare to the man now feeling empowered by the endorsement of the lady in the corner. The man got up and went in search of a restroom although he never once looked apologetic for spreading his germs.

People, please always remember to cover your mouth when you sneeze. It’s absolutely nasty to see someone sneeze all over the place. Try to think of people other than yourself and realize that no one wants to inhale your particles, okay?

    Hard to believe anyone would sneeze without covering their blowhole, but I guess you found the one guy who does. It cranks my ass when people cough without covering up, too… just sit and hack away like they're alone at home or something. Most people have the common decency to cover their mouth even if no one's around, if they were raised properly.I fully agree you should have slap-rights when people are that inconsiderate. Call me, I'll bail you out, Q!

  2. Thank, Q says:

    @ Squatlo – Thanks for the bail money! I promise you that it would not be in vain. It would definitely be someone who deserves a right hand just above the eye brows.

    I totally agree….in my office people always blame the aircon for spreading colds around the place – where as in reality its probably them coughing over each other…

  4. Thank, Q says:

    @ G – Exactly. The A/C on carries what they spew into the air. It's so simple for people to take care of themselves and try not to infect others. They just choose to not do it.

    We have a saying here: Some people are brought up, and some are dragged up. People like him are usually the latter. No way a self respecting parent is going to send that out into the world.

  6. There is next to nothing worse than being hit in the face, arms, or other exposed skin with the spray of somebody's sneeze. Ick and eeww! I cannot stand people who do either or things listed above…wash your freaking hands and cover your mouth…it's not hard! I mean come on you've been told these things since you were small kids…get your shit together. EWWWWW

  7. Thank, Q says:

    @ Vinny – "Dragged up?" LOL! Nice!@ Jewels – Like Vinny said, if you're "dragged up" (LOL!), then I guess you kind of miss out of that training. 🙂

    So incredibly gross. But maybe he's a changed man now, thanks to you.

  9. Thank, Q says:

    @ Tiffany – I hope so. He definitely needs change in his life. Hopefully, he was humiliated enough to do better, but he really didn't look like he cared when he left the room.
