Either way it sounds like (aside from the annoyance factor) it's not a good place to be in. Why are we crying? Why are we sneezing? Yikes.
But I think I'd rather be with the criers. I have a hard enough time biting my tongue and not reminding a single sneezer to try to use the elbow cover (and of course, avoid contact with it from then on). Criers.
Would you rather try Walter's crepes or his strawberry milkshake?
