Hand in the nose/mouth

How gross is that! Not only is it unhygienic, but etiquette demands that you don’t pick your nose in public. In addition, nose picking can lead to various infections. We all know that cold virus is passed into the body through the mucus membranes. Sticking your finger into the nose after coming in contact with contaminated surfaces is a sure way to give yourself a bout of bad cold. Also, since the nose is situated so close to the brain, they share the same blood supply. And an infection in the nose could be dangerous. So, refrain yourself from ‘digging gold’. In addition, trying to pull out remains of  lunch from your mouth is yet another sore sight!
