Blowing your nose at the Table

This is a common condition.  What would you have people do?  Get up and leave the table multiple times during a meal?

I have it.  There are two choices, either have snot running down my face when eating or discretely blow the nose.  A lot of the food served in restaurants here triggers it for me, probably because of spices or other additives.

When my kids were young, if they started crying or being loud or otherwise displaying behavior that would disturb other diners, that's exactly what I did- got up, left the table and either took them outside or into the bathroom until they calmed down and acknowledged that behavior wasn't tolerated in a restaurant. Sometimes "multiple times during a meal".

And I didn't take them out to eat at all when they were too young to understand this. Just as someone who finds it necessary to blow their nose at the dinner table in a public place might consider that their condition precludes going out for dinner, or only sitting on the outskirts of an outdoor dining area so as to disturb as few others as possible.

The worse part is when I see people put their snotty tissue on the plate after eating .  My husband  blew his nose one time [ allergies] in the clothe napkin .  Oh my gosh !  That NEVER happened again !  GROSS !

I am a White, God-fearin (sic) folk, and my ma and pa are NOT brother and sister. Even if this was not directed at me, I find it highly offensive and fact very sick as have been many, many more by this same person in the past. I would be surprised if over 95% of the good folk here also do not find this highly inappropriate and not at all conducive to the high standards of this board. 

The answer is to put him on ignore. You have control over that function. You do not have control over who is allowed to post here and what they are allowed to post.

Yes. You can continue this petty back-and-forth bickering, joining in the mud slinging, giving a troll the attention he craves, and generally dragging down the tone of a web board that used to pride itself on being the classy one. Yes, you certainly can.

I never respond to certain posters here. They are on ignore for a reason. I have stepped back from getting into these types of threads because they truly are a waste of precious time. Now and again I post a comment in one because I continue to hope SOMEONE might get the message. Sorry, I disturbed the game. Continue.

"Restricted from further posting". Not sure what that means. Banned?

Banned from posting.  Can still read the threads, just can't post on any of them.

Looks like thread has run its course.  Closed.
