Do you cover your nose when you sneeze?

When you either have colds or allergies and it makes you sneeze, is it a habit of yours to cover your nose when you sneeze? Be honest... Cause there really are some people that I am not sure if they just haven't made it a habit to cover up when sneezing, cause they sneeze freestyle, without even covering their nose, and it just feels like all the germs and bacteria flying all over the place because of that. Do you think it is okay to tell someone to cover their nose when they sneeze? Or is it too confrontational?

Of course we have to cover our nose when we sneeze, it's manner. If not, the bacteria, germs, or who knows what other microscopic things will come out. Does it disgust you if you take a bath under someone else's saliva?haha... Well, I think you have to tell them especially if you are the victim of the shower. :)

I do cover up!!!, it's very mean not to... keep your virus to your own, other people don't need that. Even barney...(you know the dino right??), have a song about this, teaching kids to cover up when sneezing.

Yes I always do. If I was in an enclosed area with someone I would say something.
