that's what bothers me, that it's some how rude to not acknowledge someones sneeze. Is it not more polite to ignore it?

it's become such a loose custom IMO that it really makes no difference.

nobody can blame you for not saying it.

have fun with it.

No, I won't say it. I don't like it when people say "bless you" to me, either. Sometimes I'll say "don't bother" after they say it to me, which some people think is rude, but I don't want your fucking blessings.

What?

Why would you have to say anything?

I say it. Had no idea people felt so strongly about it. Can't say I care, I think its nice and I appreciate it when people say it to me...

I think it's rude to say anything with someone sneezes. What you're essentially doing is acknowledging something kind of embarrassing, the release of snot into the air

people are so conditioned to respond with a "bless you" that when I dont do it - they think i am being rude.
i usually have this problem when I start work at a new job - I will just keep talking when the other person sneezes. Or wait till after they clean up their snot, then finish talking.

Eventually someone will say - why dont you bless me - Depending on how im feeling Ill retort
'Cause Im not a priest'.
or
'I dont believe your soul is going to escape out of your mouth'. (the origin of the custom)

but usually I say - 'I wasn't raised that way'.

It takes a few weeks, but people learn quick enough.

Sometimes when the person is really dumb, and confronts me with it - I give in and say Gezuntite (I know i butchered that one) just to keep the peace.

i just cant bring myself to say God bless you - i just cant.
OoD
