Today I got a call from the owner of a large company responding to a fax I sent him requesting assistance in clearing a balance on an account. He wanted to come by and meet with me and discuss the issue in person. I invited him to come on down and I would make time to talk to him.
He arrived and we began to discuss said account. I looked up from my seat and in his nose was the biggest booger hanging out I had ever seen. I had to force myself not to look at it and only look at his eyes. It was the hardest thing I did all day.
Now, why couldn't I just say, "Here you need a tissue." and go on? I don't know. I was too embarrassed. Yet the embarrassment he will feel when he realizes the booger was there the entire time he was talking to me might be greater than what he would have felt if I just pointed it out to him.
So my questions to you today are:
1. Is it wrong to NOT point out that someone has a disgusting booger hanging out of their nose?
2. What is the nicest way to point out said booger?
3. What would you want someone to do?
