I’m sure I’m like a lot of others who cough a lot and feel like they are constantly apologising for it...
Today I was on the tube and coughed several times - covered my mouth and just finished antibiotics (feeling a lot better) so 100% NOT contagious. The woman sat next to me l kept giving me filthy looks and covering her mouth - drawing the attention of the male opposite.
Normally this embarrasses me and I apologise and I say I’m not contagious I have dodgy lungs.
However today I thought no [edited], she’s being rude and why should constantly explain myself especially when I cover my mouth!
So 😁 I decided to on purposely cough more, the more I coughed the more I laughed. The guy opposite realised what I was doing and started laughing. The woman was not amused and sat with her hand over her mouth... I was tempted to stay and cough for the rest of her journey but have a train to catch x
