    Do you still do it?
    I personally don't care one way or the other, but my wife considers it rude if you don't say it. I also ask if I should toss salt over my left shoulder. I don't fear demonic possession by sneezing and if a sneeze gets you a Bless You in 2015, what should a cough, burp or fart get?

    I don't say anything and it annoys me when people to do it me.

    You don't have to acknowledge my sneezes. Thank you.

    Figure of speech I guess. When I stub my toe and shout "motherfucker" I am not thinking about anyone fornicating with someone's mother,lol

    I used to know someone who would say it after each of my individual sneezes, and I often sneeze 6-7 times in a row.

    Sneeze. Bless you. Sneeze. Bless you. Sneeze. Bless you. Shut the fuck...sneeze. Bless you. Stop it. Sneeze. Bless you. Argh.

    Farting is a sign of health not sickness. You are obviously ignorant. God help you.

    If anything, I admire those who do this more. Shows their commitment. If someone says bless you after I sneeze and then I sneeze a couple of times more in close succession and they're dead silent, my belief is they're thinking "Fuck you, I only got one bless you in me. You're on your own now."

    Meh, I do but not 100% of the time. My office is super annoying and has a bunch of girls who never stop fucking sneezing. I swear to god they each sneeze like 50 times a day. Drives me crazy.

    Sounds like they all have pretty weak immune systems from the AIDS

    I don't care if someone says it to me but I never say it. I don't see the point.
