If you scratch where it itches, how do you handle getting caught?

Asked by prolificus (6583points) May 4th, 2010

You might be stereotypical bubba if… you scratch wherever and whenever, without regard to those around you. If you get caught, how do you save face?

Or, if you’re a perfect gentle-person, how do you take care of urgent itches?

I’m asking because I just got caught scratching Pat McGroin.

I’m not gonna be miserable! I really don’t care what people think.

Sometimes you just gotta scratch! I do try to get away for a moment if that’s at all possible, though.

Never think twice.. and hey if they smile and look…well maybe they’ll be some mutual scratching.

I will bear any amount of itchiness necessary to avoid scratching in public. Sometimes it’s all I can do to resist scratching the itch.

I suffer and squirm. I dont want to scratch “under the girls” at work. (That just happens to be my area that itches the most).

I try my best to wait until a more appropriate time to scratch, and attempt to stick it out uncomfortably. If I absolutely have to scratch in public, I try to find a way to do so as discreetly as possible.

Gee I am not one for making a scene over personal skin distress issues so I will feign interest in the latest activity and then volunteer to make the next beer run and scratch like a mad man the entire time away!

I generally will try and find a private place to scratch but if that is not possible I will try to relieve the discomfort while drawing the leave amount of attention, If someone notices and comments, I might well invite them to help me solve my problem. They become much more tolerant of my efforts after that!
