Plus they have the audacity put it in their pocket... *shudders* that's as filthy as it gets! I didn't even know they washed them with their laundry... That's like washing a child's poopy underwear with the rest of the clothing! It makes me wonder... Haven't these people ever heard of "excellence" or "integrity"? Just use a tissue & throw it in the recycle bin when your finished, it's not that hard... really.
    You may think that it's sick and wrong but it is on of the main reasons why handkerchiefs exist. They were made for that purpose.

    I don't think everyone does that... most of my guy friends with hankies either do one or the other. They wipe their brows the crude way - with their sleeves.

    Well I just kinda think the whole hankie thing is in the past. This is the first time I've heard about it in about like 5 years. I am not used to using a hankie I'm also used to using my shirt sleeve.

    Oh. I always blow my nose in the washroom. It end up that way because there are mirrors that I can look into to make sure my nostril is clean after I blew it. I don't want stuff sticking out. I guess I also find it kinda nasty when people do it in public, with the noise and all. I find it disgusting when some one do it in a restaurant - sitting at the same table as me, usually my friends, or some place close to foods. I always tell them to go to the washroom for it.

    I'm sorry, that is just disgusting. It's as bad as sneezing into your hand and then offering to shake. I would rather you used a handkerchief multiple times and put it in you pocket.

    When I sneeze I use tissues. I do not like to sneeze on my hands or anything like that. If it ever happens I always have hand sanitizer in hand.

    About the tissue/hankie thing. Of course using tissues is more hygienic and the Japanese are total hygiene nuts. But think of the large amounts of paper waste.
    Yeah. Japanese people find it impolite to blow your nose around others. You gotta take yourself somewhere secluded (I.E: the bathroom) and do that. I read that in one of my Japanese books a long while back.

    And about the tissues. Paper waste is very inefficient. And Japanese folk are all about efficiency.
