What do you do when you sneeze? Do you say excuse me and cover your nose? Yes even I'm alone i say excuse me i don't know maybe i'm use to it. Everytime i sneeze i say excuse me and cover my nose. but i had an experience sneezing without having a hanky and a tissue thanks god nobody is around so i just run to the comfort room and grab a few tissue, had you experience that? what did you do?

Maybe I'm terribly uncultured, but I usually just sneeze into the crook of my arm. I don't ever say "excuse me," because it doesn't seem quite right to excuse yourself for something people say "bless you" about. I don't know. Maybe I should. My sister has an eccentric habit she picked up from a friend - she claps three times whenever someone sneezes. Can't recall why.

Hahaha that's funny!=D Good thing that never happened to me YET!=) Anyway, I always use tissue because its cleaner that way. I don't want to have my hanky all wet because of that!=)

Ah, yeah, like 321633wy mentioned, I always sneeze away from food and other people. If I'm stricken at the dinner table or anywhere else while eating, I turn as far away as possible. Because... ew.

When i sneeze usualy i will cover my mouth with my hand instead of tissue may be this is my natural reaction when it happen.I would say excuse me after i sneeze and then looking for tissue. Sometimes it happens at the dinning table i will turn over my head facing to the back away from the foods.
