if one of those lands on me, you'll find it in your eyeball

I do not care WHO you think you are, it is NOT okay to clip your nails during a crowded and herkity-jerkity train ride. Wait till you get outside, away from hordes of people! I have no idea where you were sitting/standing, but after I heard those clip-clip noises, there was nothing I could do to get back to sleep for fear there was an errant former piece of your body lodged in my hat or my hair.

I'm still shuddering thinking about it.

One of my co-workers FLOSSES at the desk next to me. We have a small work space and it's horrible. There have been complaints. There was even a memo about NOT doing that--no results.

I once saw a girl on a train [in another country, we don't have trains here] putting her little finger into her ear, do some agriculture, take out the finger, flick. More agriculture, flick...

After two older brothers, nothing can make me squirm.

Ya, I've seen the ear burrowers and zit pickers nose archeologists on public transportation. I've never seen nail cippers, but I did once see a creepy little guy doodle his wienie through is pants pocket.

Just *shudder* gross.

While I agree that nail clipping should occur in privacy and, preferably, outdoors, I'm not sure I'm ready to call that the grossest thing ever. Then again, I do have a tendency to keep my finger nails pretty clean. I haven't seen too many others that take as much care as I do. Maybe that is pretty gross. You just changed my whole world view in one comment. Congrats!

I'm a nail-biter. I find the use of nailclippers bizarre and against the law of nature in general. So, yes, I find that gross. But probably not for the same reasons you do.

Dave said...

No. Just... no. While you're at it, don't spit, either. And pull up your pants!
