Do you feel compelled to say "Bless You"?
    #7662606 - 11/21/07 02:06 PM (13 years, 6 days ago)

I often work in small rooms in close quarters with other people and I refuse to say bless you when someone sneezes. Am I an inconsiderate bastard?
Do you say "Bless you" (gezunteit, etc) when someone sneezes?
You may choose only one

I'm a complete agnostic, but I do say it. I think it's lost its original meaning, and is now just something nice to say.

I never developed a habit of saying it to people, so I never say it to people

it kind of irks me when people say it to me or others; sneezing is a natural reaction every animal has, why does it need to be excused? same for burping and farting

Whenever someone says it to me I say to them in an almost mocking tone, "Oh, well I've been blessed, thank you."

I don't think I've ever said it to someone and I hate it when people say it to me. It's just stupid. One of those pointless things in life.

It has nothing to do with religion, I say it sometimes to be nice, it's kind of rude if somebody sneezes and you just keep talking.

I think it's generally preference, I find it rude when I sneeze and people stop the conversation to say it. All I did is sneeze, I didn't kill a kitten.

There are so many things we do as people that don't make sense, it's stupid not to do something just because it doesn't make sense. It's kind of like a culture thing.

I agree, I'm definitely not calling it stupid or the people who do it stupid. Most of my friends will say it, it's just how they were raised and how they like to go about their business. Why let some guy over the internet tell you how to feel about it, I don't have any answers, this is just how I feel about it.

Honestly I get a little annoyed with that custom. I especially don't like it when I sneeze like 5 times in a row and someone says "bless you" after each sneeze. It just becomes mockery at that point.

Sometimes I say it though, depends who sneezes. If it's someone I don't know well then I will sometimes say it out of respect.
