I rarely rant but this one takes the cake! I shake my head in disgust every time I hear it. Where did that nasty bit of advice start circulating the airwaves? I only recall hearing this for the past couple of years. I cannot believe they are suggesting folks sneeze into their sleeve! How disgustingly gross (and frankly, a bit low-class, in my opinion)! How backwards can we get here? How about having a tissue on hand when you have a cold? Then, you throw it away and no one can get your nasty flu germs! They come in those handy small packs, too-no excuse not to have them if you have a cold/flu. I am appalled that we are getting that tidbit of advice from whoever started circulating it (govt? CDC? Who can I blame for this?) but I just heard it on a Muppet commercial, again. Who wants snot on their sleeve? And what if someone pats you on the arm, or your sleeve brushes against equipment in the office and someone touches your germs, or someone hugs you? Are we back in the middle ages, for cripes sake? Even a nasty handkerchief is better than your arm/sleeve! That has to be the stupidest, most ignorant piece of advice I've come across in years. It will have exactly the opposite effect than stopping the spread of flu germs. Sorry, I just had to scream about this. Kleenex, people, KLEENEX!
