Public Etiquette

Sorry, but I don't want to see you picking your nose in public. Same goes for belching, farting or talking on the cell phone. Why do some people think it's okay to do this in public?

This morning I took public transit and enjoyed how quiet the ride was. I glanced around at my fellow travelers and quickly wished I hadn't. A young lady was reading her book and picking her nose. I stared in disgust. She never noticed.

I'm surprised by people's total lack of judgement when it comes to personal etiquette in public. Another time, while taking public transit, an older man let loose some very loud farts. It's a normal bodily function and it was obvious he was comfortable with that. Had it been me, I would have turned bright red from embarrassment. I also would have left - quickly!

It's not just public farting and nose picking that makes me want to hand out pamphlets on public etiquette. People who sneeze without covering their mouth's drive me crazy. Cell phones are also an issue. I hate having to listen to someone blab on their phone everywhere I go. Who wants to hear the intimate details of a stranger's life? Having a cell phone ring during a movie - that is the worst!

Do people who fart, pick their noses and chat on their cell phones in public just not care about what kind of impression they're making? Or do they think it's okay to act this way in public? Next time you see someone with their finger up their nose, ask them. And let me know what they say.

1 I think it is ok to pick wedgies in public.

1 NO! That is SO gross! The thing that bugs me most is when my little brothers fart in public.

What bugs you? Is it okay to go digging for gold or pull out a wedgie in front of other people?

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
