How many times have you been driving or riding in a car and a car pulls up next to you and the driver is picking his/her nose? I turn my head real quick like I don't see it but wondered if everyone else does this as well. Don't want to embarrass the nose picker even though he/she chose to do it in public. What's your opinion?

It is almost funny yet kinda nasty at the same time. Wouldn't it be awful to have a nose problem while driving, pick the nose and then go somewhere where you have to shake hands with that person? I mean you might find a new friend on your hand..lol Thanks so much for responding.

I've been guilty of doing this a few times but only because sniffing and blowing didn't work. Also, my nose itched terribly once and only way to really get some relief was to scratch on the inside. I felt like just taking my nose off and stratching since that itch was way up there. Sometimes you just gotta do it in public.

I have seen this quite a few times over the years. That is gross. I turn my head also. I do not want to see them picking their nose but they should wait to pick it in privacy too.

I used to have a job in the food industry where both of my managers as well as many co workers were always caught picking their nose!! It used to gross me out so bad. There was only one person there that I would ever call out on it because he didn't care and we always joked about it. Seriously that's a habit most kids get over by the time they are ten!

I am annoyed at picking nose in public because I think that some things should be done in public.And if you do so you should do so with a piece of tissue

Ewww, I've seen this way to many times to remember,lol! I think we should all open our windows and yell out "You're going to poke your eye if you dig any further", haha. I find it so gaggingly sick, especially in front of everyone. Do they REALLY think no one see's them?...aaaaaaahhhhhhh, yuk! And Kleenex is so cheap, give me a break. Yes, I turn my head but one of these days.....

Hi carol! Yes I know what you mean! And it usually is a man! So don't even try to deny it men! It is usually men who are picking their nose! I don't know why they can't use a tissue! It is so nasty to see drivers doing this and I also tend to look away quickly especially since I am the passenger!

Yes...I've seen that too and try to turn the other way so I don't have to look at them. I wouldn't do it myself in public...it's gross but sometimes I suppose they think no one is looking so it's okay to dig for gold!

Oh, its so bad! Have they ever heard of a tissue? It works just as well! I don't look at them either, but I think they should carry tissues in their car - I do!

I agree. I carry kleenex in my purse and leave a pack in the glove compartment. Thanks for responding.
