Is the handkerchief dead?


Sniff, Sniff, Sniff……no, not the sound of a newshound but the sound of fellow students in the library! The cold weather has returned and with it the usual bout of coughing, spluttering and sniffing. 




The more discerning of you will have noticed that I have recently returned to tertiary education. In an office you are in the close company of your colleagues for at least 8 hours daily, and it pays to have some manners.  In one office I worked in “gentlemen” were expected to “wear their coats when crossing the front hall”……


However every man or woman for themselves at University. So if you have a sniffle you simply inflict this on anyone within earshot……



Is the hanky dead?
