Gross. No. That is not right. Nail clipping is done in the following places:

1. Bathroom over the garbage
2... yup. that's it.

I can only hope the goof thought to clean up his/her nail shavings.

SHUDDER!

I can hear the clickity click now and it's making me hurl.

Acceptable under the following circumstances:

1. It is a baby and mom just noticed it and baby is asleep and mom is seizing the opportunity.

2. Nail just broke and adult is taking care of that single nail. In the library bathroom.

3. You are in a manicure library.

Gretchen said...

Nail clipping should not be done in a public anything. Period.

oh my goodness.....I am American Indian and my grandparents would be really getting after anyone that was so careless with what was once a living part of your body. Bad medicine can be made against you. Things like hair, nails, etc. are to be burned......

I feel like Seth and Amy:

REALLY?

Really? Huh, REALLY?

LindsayKeller said...

Eh, not so much. It is to be done in the bathroom. Preferably at home.

gross.

i had a funny thing happen tonight, and who did i think of first? you. is that weird? so my hubby and i were with his dad at a pizza place, and one of the menu items is some something like la escrucia speck or crucia speck (i don't speak italiano). so when his dad was ordering, he just called it "speck." my husband asks the server, "so how exactly DO you say the name of that pizza?" she responds, "speck."

gee. thanks.

obviously that is totally gross and rude...

umm...is it ok if I do it during sacrament?

Me said...

I clicked over to see you from Mormon Mommy Blogs and couldn't help but put my 2 cents in on this...

GROSS! GROSS! GROSS! I think clipping your nails should be done in the privacy of your own home. NOT the library! (or a restaurant, waiting room..etc etc etc)

Eww. That's all I have to say about it.

KT said...

Why, did you see me or something?

ktmay said...

kt said it first. i second that! i have no qualms about clipping my tails (finger or toes) anywhere, any time...LOL. what's the big deal? it's just dead skin cells. they're EVERYWHERE anyhow.

No way! I saw your comment on our blog and was like, um, who is this random person? Gurrbonzo... and then it clicked! I'm so excited! I can't believe YOU have a baby.. I went back pages just so I could see a picture, but we just got back from church and you KNOW the hunger that ensues. I will read absolutely everything after I make dinner. Anyway, good to see you here. My gmail is emilyhope11, so it'd be fun to catch up. And if I start commenting on posts that are months old I apologize, but at least I'm giving you a warning to watch out for it.

Beeswax said...

It depends.

Fingers or toes?

Liz said...

Um, I feel okay about it so long as they didn't leave their nail clippings strewn about. There are much worse things they could have been doing. (Blowing their nose...ew! That seriously freaks me out.)

Lena said...

Yeah, no. If you absolutely must clip your nails RIGHT NOW! go into the bathroom. I will accept that.

I'm actually okay with it. I probably need an etiquette lesson.

Susan Petersen said...

Thats gross. But not as gross as when my father in law clipped his finger nails on my couch.
