Armbandkerchief

Keep snot off your arm

Suddenly everyone knows to sneeze on their arm instead of their hands for world health reasons. Recently, I remembered fast enough to do so and my coat arm wound up with, to put it delicately, snot on it. It seems a handkerchief arm band product would be in order. Or an arm banded Kleenex dispenser.

       //on their arm// I sneeze and cough inside my clothes, i.e. down the neck, where possible. It's even better than using a sleeve, and the results are not visible from the outside.   

       It tends to get odd looks, but I'm right, dammit.

       At least it's my snot. Depending on seasonal apparel, it's often possible to get it in between two layers.   

       I feel so much moral outrage at the idea of inflicting one's snot on another, even a tiny bit, that I'm willing to make that sacrifice.

I do the shirt thing too if I'm fast enough.
Screw the looks.
  

       (Laboured joke) Bobbies could do this, with few issues. Since they are expected to remain in reasonable health while on duty, a policeman's snot is not a snotty snot (snotty snot).

       That joke's too PC to be funny.

       It was rather a sudden change-over. Was there some kind of massive public service announcement?

       Didn't you get the email? Maybe it was snot allowed by your browser's spam settings.

       // massive public service announcement //   

       No, it was more of a blow-by-blow commentary …

       I was a model arm sneezer with a heroic look on my face, standing proud and a trail of snot on my sleeve as evidence of my heroism.
