What do you do when your nose starts to run?
- use a tissue/hankerchief
- every 20-30 seconds sniff it back up
- power snort the plegm into your throat and swallow it
- use your finger
This is something I’ll never be able to get used to in Taiwanese culture. (not just Taiwanese, but Japanese and Singaporean…)
For those who haven’t noticed yet, its the refusal to use a tissue, so its either a constant sniff to get the mucus back up where it was coming from OR alternatively, they snort it back up so hard they have to have swallowed it.
This is much more annoying that driving habits or meandering slowly along footpaths. Especially if you are trying to concentrate at work or sit an exam
