What do you say to a Jehovah's Witness when they sneeze?

My husband works with a Jehovah's Witness, and she gives him a dirty look every time he says "God bless you". What you would you say?

  • I say "Bless You" to everyone--I don;t care what someone's religion is! It's a common phrase. I mean no "ill-will" towards anyone and their "rules." Seriously, if someone has a bug up their butt about how I extend a general courtesy, they can go to Hell! LOL :o)

  • I say "gezundheit" to everyone. If they don't like it, that's their problem.

  • because idk they are crazy psychos ugh i hate that i had to grow up in that religion, i wasn't able to celebrate holidays or do sports or go to school dances or hang out with the kids from school they are so separated they might as well just be a cult like the people in texas....i despise everthing about this religion, and i hate that my mom won't talk to me because i got shunned and she says that god is more important than her family OMG what a stupid brainwashing religion.

  • In Our Family, We say "Gesundheit", which literally means "in good health" (according to my German teacher in '03, haha)..We say it to each other and anyone who sneezes, and sometimes get funny looks. lol. Jehovah's Witnesses would hear it, too.

  • How about "there she blows?" LOL. I work with one, and that's what we do.

  • They just say "Excuse me" - Why is it such a big deal?
