Why is it that when I pick my nose, even with a napkin, someone STILL gets offended and upset about it?

It's not like I'm gonna wipe it somewhere, it's on a napkin to get thrown out!

Picking your nose, either with or without a napkin, should be done in private, unless you are driving a car, then no one can see you picking your nose.

I find it kinda funny when people in their cars pick their noses, like no one can see them.

Maybe funny, but still gross.

I get that part. It's like I'm addicted to it, like a smoker (except I don't smoke)
OH YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN

Dude! If your not waking up in the middle of the night to "pick"
its an obsession... Not an addiction

I don't wake up in the middle of the night to dig for gold, but I dig for gold when I wake up in the middle of the night...............

No I didn't quite mean it like an addiction, just the habit of it

No! Gross!

Joshua, as long as you're picking your own nose, it shouldn't matter. IF you're chasing other people to pick their noses, then it's a problem.

But... Punkin. It's, it's, it's just.... you know...... ewww.

I would ask why are they looking in the first place. Lol.
People in general get offended about anything and everything. Lol.
Just go in a bathroom somewhere to clean your nose next time. (Or just completely ignore that person.)

People are squeamish. Just try to do it where no one can see you.

Do it where no one is present or if you have to, just blow your nose and that usually rids it instead of sticking your finger there

I don't think I've blown my nose in about 10 months, I like picking it better
Report as
Gross as it maybe, it's not good for you. You can give yourself an infection if you caused your nose to bleed, esp since your hands can carry a lot of germs and bacteria that you don't want in your body. Also your nasal passages are sensitive and the mucus in there is supposed to be there to help stop anything bad from getting into your system

I see myself as an expert booger picker, no worries there

Glad about that, because I'm not sure I'm mentally ready to stop!

I guess because they find it highly disrespectful in some sort of bad manners. I however when do that am often told to stop it's gross and disrespectful. And then I'll ask them if they would love for me to blow my nose or pick it with my hands or fingers.... Lol

I don't know if I'd be willing to pick someone else's nose o.O
Are you feeling better than a couple days ago? You kinda had me worried
Report as
I didn't say anything about picking somebody else's nose gross. And yeah I am now sorry for having you worried.
Report as
Oh, lol. I misunderstood.
And that really is perfectly fine Natalia. I'm just glad you didn't leave ask.com (no sarcasm in this voice)
Report as
Oh silly and nope I was strongly debating on deleting my account, but eventually I would've just made a new one and I didn't want to lose my old one. So I just decided to leave it and calm down some. Aww! I guess you would've missed me then huh? Lol
Report as
Well, yeah =p
A pretty good amount
And ask.com would have a gaping hole where you used to be!
Report as
Aww thanks for that. And how have you been lately?
Report as
Eh, not terrible! So I'm okay lol...
I just got a package in the mail... I already know exactly what it is but I'm gonna double check anyway
Also, I can't say this enough, very glad you're still here Natalie =)
Report as

I ordered 5 "high capacity" magazines straight from the tiger manufacturer a while ago, they finally came today!
I'm almost done through cycling them through the gun right now lol
Report as
I hope your day goes good actually great instead! And you've got one heck of an obsession for guns I'll say that much because I can see how excited you are when talking about them. Lol
Report as
Omg yes it's a huge obsession, I hope you understand =)
My buddy Roy likes to poke fun at my .22 (fun gun), he says "it's got as much kick as my Bb Gun!"
I'd just like to mention, you can kill a zombie with a .22, you can with a BB gun
Report as
I understand alright my little brother has an obsession for guns too. And knives, but he isn't allowed one until his 15th birthday. And I would imagine so with .22 killing a zombie and stopping it dead in it's tracks. Better than a BB gun that'll just probably piss it off more coming at you. Lmao!
Report as
LOL I'm glad you understand me =)
