Well, it's allergy season here in NH and everyone around me seems to be affected.
Here's my pet peeve - snorkers. It seems that you're either a snorker or a blower. To me there is nothing more disgusting than the sound of someone snorking back nose stuff. So what do you think is worse? The sound of someone blowing their nose, or the sound of someone snorking it back in?
Please tell me I'm not the only one who hates that nasty noise.
We are blowers in our house, and I much prefer to both see and/or hear someone blowing than snorking. I say it is supposed to come out, so get it out. Of course, you can blow as politely and discretely as possible.
Okay, I'm going to have to admit to being both. I blow whenever it is possible. However, the kind of issues I get are gunk in my sinuses and I can't get it out simply by blowing, so I have to snork and then blow. I try to avoid doing this around other people as it is disgusting, but I can't clear my nose any other way. I also use nasal washes in the morning that often help me avoid this problem most of the day.
Maybe it's not just the sound of 'snorking' but the fact of knowing what's in that person's mouth after doing so...
Yeah the whole thing. I prefer the nose blowing... but please NOT AT THE TABLE... even if no one is eating anymore....please excuse yourself to a private place. Its one ofmy pet peeves.
And I have to say just readining this makes me get all gaggy feeling.

Snorking, makes me nauseous just thinking about it. The ones that irritate me are the sniffers. You know those who seem to think that their cold or allergy problem will magically disappear when they leave the house so they don't bother to carry kleenex with them and instead spend the entire day/evening sniffing to keep their running nose from dripping.
Ok first, am I the only one who's never heard the term "snorking"? I mean, I understand what it is after reading this thread, but I've never heard that term. When I first saw the thread title all I could think of was the 80s cartoon Snorks, and I was so confused.
As for the answer to the OP's question: I'm a nose-blower. I actually lack the ability to snork well at all. DH does it (yuck), but I just can't.
For those who are totally grossed out by people blowing their nose at the table - I am so with you!!! A few months ago, we were out to dinner (at a decent restaurant, no less, not that it matters) and out of nowhere, DS(11) just pulls out his napkin and starts blowing his nose. I have NEVER seen him do that before and I about came unglued. Needless to say, I am pretty sure he'll never do it again.
I had never heard "snorking" either. I do both and I sometimes am a sniffer! I guess I would be grossing you all out! More often than not blowing is ineffectual for me; I will feel like my nose is a faucet but then I blow and nothing. Sometimes at home I will get tired of wiping and sniffing and will stuff tissues up my nostrils.
I agree. Snorking is annoying and gross. I'd rather someone blow their nose, and immediately wash hands after. Something that also annoys me.....whistlers....someone who has a Stuffed nose, or partially stuffed nose and rather than try to clear it or breath through the mouth, breaths through their nose and makes that annoying whistling sound. Ugh.
