Yes. when I am in public place, I always cover my mouth. I don't want them to see my tongue and my lungs when I am yawning.

I wun cover my mouth when i'm yawning at home, but i will keep my yawning down, as i dun need to announce to the whole world.. haha =D But if i'm in public, i will cover my mouth as a form of basic courtesy, and also hygiene purpose.. hehe =D Imagine seeing somebody yawning without covering their mouth, and see their food stuck at their teethm it's so disgusting.. haha =D ANd also, i hate it when ple yawn so loudly in public as if they are the only one there..

well i am just like you. if i am in public i'll definitely cover my mouth. however, i don't really bother at home. that is if i'm alone at home. if i am with my family i'll still cover my mouth. i just find that courteous to cover my mouth. it's so strange to be looking into a person's wide-open mouth as in the case of yawning. i guess i'm pretty rigid about this. just like i don't chew with my mouth open. cheers ;p

It is a good habbit to cover mouth whenever we are yawning whether it is in house or on a public place. whenever we open our mouth for yawn it expell more bad air from the inner part of our mouth and it produces badsmell in the area. So do make a good habbit by covering the mouth.

yes your right I did that also, when I'm in a public place and many people I cover my mouth. But when I'm at home all alone I din't bother to cover it, unless my mom cleaning our house. Lol.
