I was sitting at a cafe. Two guys on my right. Two guys on my left. I sneezed loudly. Both guys looked at me, smiled and said “bless you”. The girls completely disregarded and just kept talking like nothing happened.
What does it say about us? What does it say about the differences between men and women. Are girls really that afraid that saying “bless you?” will make me talk to them and be a pest? Or are women on average inherently less courteous or friendly than men?
