What to do when...

someone says God Bless You? Dh's gramma is very Christian and every time I see her she tells me "God Bless You" I'm not that religious and don't know what to say. I feel kinda awkward and usually end up saying "ok" or "Thank you"

  • Thank you is a good polite response.

    Okay sounds less appreciative. I'm not religious either, but I like to keep the grandmas happy.

  • I say thank you, or just smile. I always thought it was weird to acknowledge someone else's bodily function, but maybe that is just me LOL

  • Groovy she tells me whenever she sees me or leaves. Not when someone sneezes.

  • It makes me feel a little awkward, but I just say 'thank you'. No big deal. I just say 'Bless you.' if someone else sneezes.

  • You're just supposed to say Thanks. No need for anything else.
