I have a friend who picks her nose. She is a sweet kid and a great friend,
but I worry about her habit. I
don’t want people to judge her based on it, and I know of at least one person
who has. She’s embarrassing
herself. Should I tell her?
Dear Tactful Teller,
You have options: 1) Do nothing. 2) Say “I saw a kid
yesterday who was way too old to be picking his nose. It was kinda disgusting.” Or, 3) Next time she does it in
front of you, make a weird face and say, “Ew, don’t do that.” Proceed with
caution, but it is a favor to make her aware of a habit that could bring
ridicule to her. (Please, don’t say anything in front of others.)
