I’ve had a bit of a cough lately, and whenever I’m in public, I practice proper coughing etiquette by coughing into my arm as to avoid spreading germs. But every single time I do that, a person next to me will say, “bless you”… thinking I sneezed. Then I’m stuck there wondering, ‘Should I correct them and let them know it was a cough? or should I just say thank you?’ But if I say “thank you,” then I’m technically accepting a ‘bless you’ under false pretenses. So I kind of just nod my head once and don’t say anything. Then they look at me like I’m rude for not saying thank you, *sigh*… Why does life have to be so complicated?
