Ever wonder why they call it a cough drop?


My sinuses have been bothering me for the past couple of days so I took a Mucinex this morning before work.

Nothing like a little sinus drainage set the mood for the day....

Between the throat clearing and the subtle cough I'm certain I was the most annoying person alive.

I'd popped a cough drop in my mouth and was headed out of my office speak with an applicant when one of my coworkers had called my from behind.

"What's up? I'm headed up front meet with applicant."

Turning see was speaking with me, I felt the tickle in the back of my throat and knew I was about cough.

Raising my arm, I coughed into my bent elbow and felt the cough drop ricochet out of my elbow pit and onto my shoulder.

Classy!

I might as well been that deer licking 's eye the way my coworker was staring at me and my cough drop.

Plucking the cough drop off my shoulder, popping back into my mouth, I left my coworker staring as I turned on my heel and headed out the door.

's all fun and games until the cough drop becomes a projectile object.

Happy Monday!

I would have thought you'd be coughing even more when you popped it back in your mouth? Especially if you were wearing a fluffy sweater.

    Terrible, but this whole story gave me the giggles. I hope you feel better soon!
I woke up with the sniffles just now... I'm blaming this on my flu shot.

ugh.... I hate that! That usually happens to me when I'm trying to talk and suck on a cough drop at the same time, too much activity going on in there.

    And THAT is the very reason why you're supposed to cover your cough! Has nothing to do with spraying germs everywhere and everything to do with the safety and well being of those close who may be in danger from that projectile. Your co-worker should have thanked you for blocking it!
My sentiments exactly!! LOL

I'm fine except for the sinus thing. I don't handle this time of year well, when the weather is all over the place. Snow one day, 70 degrees the next, rain the next 3....

    Nice! At least you blocked it. I would have launched it just because I love my personal space. Lol
When you work in retail, personal space is a myth. There is no 6 ft distancing for an employee, customers will walk right up on you, pull their mask down, and breath in your face to ask you where the fucking zip ties are.
