Do you say excuse me after you, sneeze, cough, fart around a group of people?
The reason im asking this is I just went through 3 days of orientation, about 17 people whom got hired for different spots at a hospital here, this one guy, who just happend to sit behind me, had a cold evidently, but he would sneeze, i'd feel the spray, he'd be hacking, not to mention him or someone was dropping some silent bombs.. Finally a lady had the balls to tell him, dang man what are you 12? Cover your mouth, your nasty.. So are you that type of person who??

It really depends on the situation... if I do all that at the same time, I usually say ouch...

For the silent bombs, I look at the guy next to me and say, "Eww! Did you just fart?!" thus deflecting the attention off myself.

It's pretty mean...I shouldn't do that.

After I sneeze I say "Damm snot...always trying to get away!"
After I cough I say "That weed is still burning my throat!"
After I fart I scream loudly "BOMBS OVER TOKYO!"

I have this thing where if I sneeze I do it about 20 or 30 times (no lie, it is miserable) so I don't say excuse me then because I don't have time between sneezes so I wait until I finish.  Everyone waits to say Bless you until I finish too.

Usually I am so embarrassed the only thing I can mutter makes me sound like Charlie Brown's teacher.

Depends on who I am with, if I am with my boys and I fart......I usually wait until they notice (and they always do!) I say "Sorry"!

I would have given one sneeze on my neck the old "Maybe it caught him off guard" but at the second one I would have said something like "Didn't your Momma teach you to cover your mouth" cause THAT is just wrong!

Its better to burp and taste it, than to fart and waist it.

If I said excuse me after every time I did one of those things, excuse me would be the only word I would say all day because I'm always doing at least one of them...

If I felt someone spraying my backside they would be getting an earful of cursewords. Being sneezed on is equivelant to being spit on. It's the nastiest thing you could possible do to someone.

If I have to drop a "silent bomb", I will sometimes pick out the person in the room that I can stand and do a walk by on them- I call it "crop dusting"! Just drop the heat and move away!

My 'excuse me' is louder than my sneeze. People cringe when I sneeze, cause they know an 'excuse me' scream is following...

For a sneeze, I ask anyone around if they saw which way my tonsils went!
For a cough, I just say "Damn Hairballs!"
And for a fart, it doesn't really matter since there are rarely any survivors to complain!

Don't cover ur mouth w/ ur hand if ur going to sneeze or cough.  Ur going to touch people and things that other people will touch, thus still spreading the germs.  Instead, turn ur head into the nook of ur upper arm, between the shoulder and bicep and cough and/or sneeze into ur sleeve. 

I'll only say "Excuse me", if no one says the many variations of "Bless you".

I was raised with manners and to respect my elders so I would say I would do the right thing!

I dont feel the need to excuse myself because of a natural bodily function.
