    Sorry about this, but I want to know what people do.....

    OK, you know every so often you get a kinda 'pick-me' bogie up your nose sorta dry and to high and dry to wipe but to low to ignore?? In private you undoubtedly do the simple thing and give it the finger, but wtf do you do in public?? OK, i admit my hands don't function quite as well as most others, but l was having dinner out with my parents the other day and trying all sorts of things with a tissue but just couldn't dislodge the *******! Is there a trick??

    Apologies again for the thread

    Get a tissue & blow extremely hard.

    Alternatively, excuse yourself & in the privacy of the toilets, do what you like.

    Id go to the loo personally. I tend to get those with my hay fever. Really annoying, because you can feel it tugging on those little hairs in your nose.

    Yeh, trouble is, me going to a loo in a resturaunt normally involves a parent or two getting up too, if theres steps or very close tables - and l don't like causing trouble like that.

    'Drop' your fork or spoon or something, if in the middle of a dinner/lunch in a restaurant and then try to put your head under the table pretending that you are trying to pick up the fork. Give the supposed '*******' a jolly well pull while under the table and you will be free!

    PLUS then they'd realise it was for a booger and the whole "discreet" thing goes out the window.

    Mucophagy is the consumption of the mucus thus extracted, and is commonly referred to as "picking your nose and eating it" (where 'it' refers to the mucus rather than the nose).
    There's an interesting tidbit for ya!

    this thread is HILARIOUS!!

    if only there were more happy threads on H&R. oops sorry, having nasty boogers isn't happy :P

    i have a bag that says "boys eat boogers when no one's watching"

    ok just so that i will have contributed something useful to this thread, whenever my sister and I used to sit on the bus or train she had this awful habit of picking her nose and she just did it so openly like she didn't care who was watching. and she didn't. she insisted that tissues just weren't as good as a finger, so we came to a compromise that she would have to use a tissue wrapped round her finger. and she claimed it wasn't as good but she would survive.

    and all was well on the buses and trains of glasgow thereafter

    maybe you could do something subtle involving wiping your mouth with a tissue but underneath it you have a finger armed with tissue...

    Heh, I agree with you ^ on ear wax... it tastes horrible.

    As for the bogies, I usually find rubbing the offending nostril helps, but often, if I can't pick it out, I'll sneeze it out.
