Boo Boo Boogers!

Monday, April 13, 2009

Yes, gross we all get them (even Jessica Simpson)! Those natural but unsightly little booger buggers that reside in our nose and pop out so often to say hello. So the question is, do you mention to a friend, a co-worker, a stranger that they have a little something in their nose or do you oversee it so you don’t embarrass them? It’s a tuff call, tell them and embarrass them on the spot, or don’t and let them go throughout the day having booger run-ins with others. Be honest…what would you do or what have you done???

I would take the person to the side and tell them because I would want someone to tell me.

I've told them politely and quietly they might want to get a tissue. That usually is less embarrassing then saying "Hey, so-and-so, you got a boog!"

I just rub or wipe my nose when people have alil something something in there. The natural response is to do the same.

Absolutely tell them!!! If it were you, you'd want someone to tell you. You just have to be discreet about it.

I think you should always tell your friend, coworker or anyone. They maybe embarrassed when you tell, but they will thank you later. No body wants a booger hanging out of their nose.

Yes, I would definitely tell my friend that they need to wipe their nose and leave it at that, so as not to embarass them any further.

I would try to be polite, but I'm a very straight to the point kind of person. Either way I would say something because how many other people didn't and how embarrassing would it be to go the whole day that way. I would be mortified for sure.

I ALWAYS tell somebody that they have "dried skin" when something is hanging in or around their nose. Then I reassure thenm that it happens to everyone. Better to have one incident of slight embarassment then to go through a whole day of people staring at you then looking quickly away!

I personally think that you should tell the person. See, I have a nose ring with one of the curly things on it to keep it in, and it looks like a booger when it spins the wrong way. I appreciate it when my friends are like "oh, hey Deege, you got a booger..." because I wouldn't wanna go the whole day like that. That's just embarrassing. I personally think a good friend would save a friend from a day of embarrassment. :) Hope this helps! <3 DeegeMonster

My mother and I created a code when we both worked retail together in the cosmetic department of a high end retailer. It's quite simple and in my opinion should be used worldwide. The "visible booger" is quietly brought to attention by simply saying, "VB". It can also be phrased "VBLN" which stands for visible booger left nostrile and visaversa for the right side. We have used this code since 1987 and still do to this day! Help spread the code ladies!

I'd rather have a friend tell me than walk around grossing people out all day. And I do tell people if they've got 'face issues', but it all depends on just how comfortable I am with them - people I don't really know, you're on your own, sorry!

I have had an experience like that. One day, my co-worker came to work and she didn't realize that she had tucked her skirts into her tights and that her baby had thrown up on the back of her sweater. I took her to the side and quietly pointed out what I had seen and she was extremely grateful. She didn't want to go around looking like she did not care about her experience and since I was the first one who saw her at work, I saved her a lot of embarrassment. I feel like people will appreciate it if you tell them early on rather than making them go through the day with embarrassing things hanging from them or things that could have been easily straightened out. I have tucked my skirt in my tights so many times and I'm grateful whenever someone points it out so I don't go on looking crazy.

Ok first of all, why do we have to continue to pick on Jessica for her problems. Sure she gained a little weight and wore high waisted pants, sure she forgot to blow her nose when she was probably having a bad allergy day. But really who hasn't? Like you said its natural. As for telling someone about the boodies, I would definitely let them know. I mean why not, I'd want to know. Aren't we taught that honesty is the best policy? Come on girls, hand you friends a tissue!

I think that if a problem can be fixed right away, go ahead and mention it and the problem is gone. However, if it's something that can't be fixed right away, like a spot on the back of your skirt or pants, don't say anything. This way the person isn't left feeling self conscious for the rest of the day.

The best way to handle the situation (awkward as it may be) would probably to offer the friend a tissue casually instead of directly pointing it out. Hopefully, they'll get the hint and take the tissue! Then you can have a good laugh about it later, and trust me, they'll feel better in the long run.

Of course I would let someone know they had a "hanger-on" or a "cliffy" as we would sometimes call them. How is this different from the dreaded spinach in teeth incident or that irritating piece of tiolet paper stuck to a shoe??? If I were the victim, I would most certainly want to know I was less than flawless. Besides, there is nothing more disappointing than looking in the mirror at the end of the day and think, "Why didn't anyone tell me?"

I would most definitely want to tell that person with a little bug a booger that's itching to come out. However, I would only tell them when they are alone to not embarrass them. I would want someone to let me know as soon as possible also, but not in front of a bunch of people. I would be a little annoyed if I saw it at the end of the day and I'm stuck thinking how long it's been like that and why no one let me know.

If it's someone I know pretty well. I tell them, so that they don't go throughout the day like that and possibly be embarassed by someone else. If it's someone I don't know, then I don't say anything to them. I let it go, maybe one of their friends will tell them. What's the saying? You know who your true friends are if they will tell you something even if you don't want to hear it.

It's important not to embarass people, so unless it's your best friend/spouse/sibling, be as subtle as possible. I try to rub my nose or look in the mirror in front of the person, as other people do naturally mimic this kind of activity, but if it's not someone i'm terribly comfortable with, I'm not going to risk mortifying them- I pretend I didn't see it. I think that's ok unless it's terribly noticeable, or they're about to give a presentation with something hanging out of their nose, etc. It's a fine balance of helping and embarassing, it's true.

If I know (or kind of know) the person I would tell her in a discreet way. If I don't... it would depend on how much it "shows". If it is too much I would tell them they have some "food" stuck and offer a tissue or guide them to a tissue box. I would truly appreciate if someone where to tell me that I need to "clean up". I rather be embarrassed for those few minutes than realize at the end of the day what happened and be embarrassed (ashamed) for days.

If it's a good friend or someone you'll see all day, let them know. There's nothing more awkward than not saying something only to have someone else say something, then your friend/coworker/whatever will be ticked at you for not saying something earlier - "you mean that was in my nose for 5 hours and you didn't say anything?!!" If it's a stranger, just keep on walkin'...that's what their friends are for.

If it were someone that I knew, and they had a cliffhanger....(lol..that's what I call the booger buggers when they hang out)and I liked the person, I would more than likely politely tell them. But...if it were someone I disliked, I would let them keep it there without telling them...I know, it sounds mean.. If if were someone I didn't know though, and they seemed like a nice person..like an elderly person or something... I would probably try to figure out a way to tell them...but if it is someone who looks like a snob..I wouldn't tell them.. They shouldn't be snobby...lol. I would want to know if I had one though! I try to be nice to everyone.. :)

I am a receptionist at our church, and I come in contact with a lot of people throughout the week. This has happened several times when I am speaking with someone, and so I have learned (from my sister actually), that if I can make eye contact with that person, say if we are in a large group, and I just wipe my nose then they get the hint. Or, if it is a close friend of course I could just tell them hey you have something on your nose, and it's not embarassing to them at all. I've even had the same thing happen for me. I would hate to let someone walk around like that and not tell them! I think that is more rude than discreetly telling the person.

This is incredibly embarrassing for anyone...! But I'd rather BE embarrassed telling someone they have a problem than let them continue to BE embarrassed. In the same situation, I've pointed to my nose and most of the time, people 'get it'. Other times, if the finger pointing doesn't work, I'll whisper in their ear that they have a 'nose friend' to get rid of... Sure, it's embarrassing to be the one telling them - but think of it if was YOU! (Just another reason to carry a mirror!)

I fell that you should definitely say something. It doesn't have to be a detailed comment. You could offer a tissue or just simply say there is something under your nose. Be sure to do it in a private manner so it does not seem to be a deliberate means of embarrassing the person. If you do it the right way, I do think the person would be appreciative.

If the person was my friend, I wouldn't have any problem just mentioning the little booger bugger to them! That's what friends are for! If the person was co-worker, I would take them aside and mention the little booger bugger to them. If I couldn't get them aside or away from a crowd, etc, then I would TRY to get their attention and then "rub my nose" and then the person would in turn rub their nose (kind-of-like "monkey-see-monkey-do"). If the person was a stranger, that would be trickier---about the only thing you can do is get their attention and rub your nose and hope that they will imitate you and rub their booger bugger off!

I would offer my friend a tissue and suggest that she had something on her nose. As she began to wipe I would offer directions,such as a little lower, more to the right etc until the little bugger of a booger was removed. No need for anyone to feel badly or think they have offended anyone. A booger of a bugger is not a Lady Bug.

I am not afraid to tell someone when they have a booger. Usually I do it when they are alone and I can whisper it in their ear, offer up a tissue and then they can take care of it. If a co-worker has the issue with a boogie I would just send them a poliet email unless it was one of my friends then i can just say "Hey girl, you got a booger." Honestly, I would rather someone just tell me I have a booger then they let me go the whole day, or till I noticed it, embarassing myself. Come on ladies, do us all a favor and speak up, let us know we have a boogie hanging from our noses, it is not like we have a space creature in there. LOL

He couldn't understand me, so in a loud voice he said, "What are you saying?" All conversation stopped and everyone looked at me. I am not sure who was more embarrassed, me or him after I said, "You have something on your nose." then everyone looked at him.

I think this is completely based upon how well you know the person. If it's a coworker whom you feel comfortable with, you should let them know... chances are, they'll appreciate the concern for the rest of their day. if it's a new client or acquaintence, I'd say just let it go... the last thing you want to do is embarrass them, and who knows - you may never see them again anyway!

It goes the same for having something in your teeth or an eye booger, too. Personally, I carry around a mirror and check for these things on a fairly regular basis.

I would rather be embarrased at that first initial moment, than go the whole day without knowing that it was there. So, I guess what I'm saying I would do is, I would definetly tell the person, wether I knew them well, or not at all, or if I loathed the person, I would save them the embarrasment of having a booger in their nose all day. -Lila

At that point, once they look in the mirror, my job as a good citizen is done :-).

I did once and he started to pick his nose right then and there...Uuggg! How gross can you be?? If it is a friend or someone who I know that would handle it the right way...a girl...then yes, I'll say something. If it's a guy, or a guy who doesn't seem take care of himself anyway...no, let it hang and stay away!

Personally, I have had this happen to me and luckily for me someone spared me the embarrassment of going the whole day wondering why people were looking at me and hinted about it. So i too would say something to that person or hint as to it. The person would probably be thanking you for letting them know. A little embarrassment is easier to deal with than to be embarrassed throughout the day or in an important meeting.

I always tell my friends and co-workers, but I do it in a very descreet way. I usually say "you got something...." and rub my nose and they get the picture. I would want someone to tell me so I never let anyone go around with something hanging out of their nose or in their teeth! There are always descreet ways to do this.

I would so want to know. It would be more embarrasing to go to the ladies room after a meeting or social event and find one of those little monsters peeking it's head out. We all know it happens, but I think if we are friends, I will tell you and you really really need to tell me! It's the same with mascara smut. If I am sporting raccoon eyes, please just whisper it in my ear instead of letting me walk around thinking I am looking all cute! It's was real g-pals do for each other!!

My younger brother had horrible allergies, as does my husband, my son and lots of folks out there. I learned to carry tissues with me at an early age (because of my brother's need). If I see a booger, I call the person over as quietly as I can and let them know and pass along a clean tissue. Never has anyone been rude or angry, they've always said thank you. So, I vote for telling them, right now, very quietly.

Only with the people I'm close with, I can tell them they have boogie. But strangers...No. I want to, but I just can't.

Of course you should tell them. Not in front of everyone, but take them aside and tell them there's a bat in the cave. With a stranger, I'd offer them a kleenex, and say, "I just thought you might want to clear things out, so you can present your best face to the world." Same goes for cornflakes on the shirt.

Second you just have to say it quick and then dont bring it up again. I say, You need to blow your nose, hand them a tissue and then continue on with the conversation as if there was nothing to think twice about. Afterall it does happen to everyone

It depends on the person for me. If I'm really close with the individual, I will for sure. For people I'm not as close to, I do feel hesitant in telling them. I've actually tried rubbing or blowing my own nose, hoping to hint it to them. There is a psychology term that is used to describe when two people are conversing or interacting, they tend to imitate each other's actions. So through rubbing or blowing my nose, I hope to subtly influence the individual to do the same.

As embarrassing as it is, I guess I would rather tell the person in a nice way rather than set them up for further embarrassment. What happens if a hot guy walks by and sees your friend's mishap? Plus, if she's your friend, she'll thank you for looking out for her and now you know that she's got your back.

I had that happen today, actually, at work. My coworker was standing by my desk, and I noticed the problem. I reached for my box of tissues, handed one over, and quietly said, "You might want to use this." My coworker took a second to realize what I was suggesting, and then used the tissue appropriately. (Too bad my coworker didn't take advantage of my offer of a squirt of hand sanitizer, idea which I keep next to my tissue box, but such is life.) Having my tissues nearby turned out to be helpful. I think keeping a small package of tissues in my bag might be a good idea in the future.

I would say, "You have to wipe your nose." It's as simple as that. I most certainly would not want to walk around with something hanging there.

Be honest! Everyone eventually finds out they had a "boo boo booger." Better if you tell them and avoid further embarrassment. They'll know you saw and didn't tell them. I would rather be told and fix the problem then go around all day with it.

I think is best thing to do is to tell them! I wouldn't want to be walking around all day with a boogie hanging out my nose and I wouldn't want the same for a friend, colleague, etc. Here's what I do- I always carry a little mirror around for my daily touch-ups, when someone has a little green hanging out their nose I whip out my mirror and give it to them and say "Check yourself," quietly and as discreet as possible. I have done this with friends and they think that it is a good way of showing them the boogie without embarassing them.

It really depends on how good of a friend the person it is. If it's a really good friend, I have no problem letting them know that they have something in their nose. If it's not a good friend, I might not mention it because I wouldn't want to embarass them. I'd hope that one of their close friends would tell them. So all in all, it's a good friends responsibility to tell!

The question is, would you want to know if you were walking around with a booger hanging out of your nose? Of course! Absolutely! Be a friend and discreetly let the person know by a slight rub of your nose or by saying something like, "Go like this" and then rub your nose. They will get the idea and will be grateful that you told them. I always tell people because I would want them to tell me. It's the right thing to do!

Instead of coming right out and saying in front of everyone, "you've got a booger", I just look right at them and rub my nose and usually that's enough to let them know. If not, I do it again and say to the person "Do this", and that tells them and they can excuse themselves for a moment and take care of it.

It would depend on my relationship with that person and the current circumstances that we are in. I would definitely tell my friend or relative but I would do it in a way that would not make it odvious to others and would not hurt their feeling at the same time. If it is a stranger but they are in a situation where having something like that can be very embarrassing for them (such as a speaker, teacher etc.) I would say "excuse me and whisper it into their ear." I would do this because I would hope that if this were to happen to me someone would tell me too!!

I also tell people if they have something in their teeth because I used to work as a dental assistant. Believe it or not that is a lot of people's worst fear is to talk to someone and later discover that they had something stuck in their teeth.

Years ago some friends of mine came up with a neat way to disguise having to tell them they had a booger hanging (from a cliff) in their nose. It was shortened to a "cliffy" and from then on it became a quick way to let them know something was there without having to embarrass either one of them. Pick up the habit (no pun intended) and get a code name for this for you and your friends so you can keep each other booger free without any shame!

For some reason I've often been in this situation. I think the best thing to do is whisper in there ear (if there are other people around) and tell them. If you dont then who knows how many other people are going to see it after you and when they finally find out that its there i think they would be embrassed because of all the people they talked to inperson whom might have seen it. So I think that you should let that person know they have a little something poking out there nose.

According to protocol, the way to guage whether to tell someone about a problem with their appearance is to ask yourself if they can do anything about it immediately. If a woman has a run in her stocking, you would avoid telling her because she may just have to fret about it all day. But in the case of the unsightly nose visitor, you should tell her (or him), as they can immediately remedy the problem. At least that's what they taught me in finishing school! :)

I would definitely take them aside and tell them in private "you have something on your nose" and brush my nose in the spot because I think eventually someone would be really mean about it and I'd want them to hear it nicely with the least amount of embarrassment possible.

I would definately tell a friend or co-worker. Although there might be the initial embarassment, how embarassing would it be if you walked around in front of complete strangers, and no-one told you.... YIKES. I would rather a friend tell me than a stranger see it!!!

Hmm...sticky situation. I guess I would casually mention that she has something on her nose so she could rub it or something. I wouldn't want to embarrass my friends, but I would rather do that then have her go throughout the whole day like that!

Absolutely! I always tell people if they have a little boogey, food in their teeth, tag hanging out, whatever. It's always been appreciated and followed up with a thank you. I would hope for the same treatment.

of course you want to tell them. i believe we have all learned from kindergarden, do un to others as you would like un to you. so if you want to walk around with a bogger than don't tell others. but if you would rather stop the embarrassment at the first moment tell someone.

You HAVE to tell them, what are friends for. You don't have to point out what it is, just tell them they have something on the end of their nose. If they wipe it and it goes away - problem solved, if not, just tell them they might want to go take a look.

Friends & Family you have to give them the heads up. I usually just point to the appropriate nostril on myself while looking at them, and they get the hint. Co-workers are usually with a lighter step, either the "there's something on your face, go look at a mirror" line, or if available just handing them a kleenex with a shy smile without having to say anything. It's amazing how embarassing it is when someone tells you, I always say "Oh, Sorry!" it happens to us all, but it always makes you feel like a semian neandrethal, unable to keep your body fluids under control! I hate to have someone say something, but always appreciate it when they do!

I am always that one person who would tell you if you had a bugger hanging out of your nose or if your eyeliner has smeared, and/or I would even tell you (kindly) if your dress in face DOES make you look fat. Now, I would never consider myself to be rude in anyway, however, I feel that if people, such as the women on this website, try their hardest to look their best, why wouldn't I tell them that there is some slight imperfection to their look? I would want someone, even a random stranger, to tell me if someone was hanging out of my nose or anything was "out of place" so to speak. I would prefer it not to be some random person, but I am not picky when it comes to "courteous critiques" as I like to call them. So next time you see one hanging or you notice is out of place, tell them! Or, at least tell me so that I can kindly notify said person. Thanks!

Ok, if someone would've told Jessica earlier in the day, we would not be staring at this super-embarrassing picture! It is difficult to tell a stranger that they have something in (or on) their nose, but there is no excuse in letting your friends go out with boogies in their noses. Friends don't let friends get publicly humiliated.
