46. It drives me fucking nuts.
My wife always says "bless you" when I sneeze. Never "geshundheit" nor "excuse you" nor does she ever just leave it alone. I can be in the other room and she'll say "bless you." I can be out in the garden and I'll hear a faint "bless you" eminating from the house after I sneeze. I live in dread that I'll be home alone watching TV while she's out, and I'll sneeze, and I'll hear her disembodied voice saying "bless you." She says "bless you" to the dogs when they sneeze. One time I caught her saying "bless you" to a TV character. Worse, she absolutely insists I say it to her when she sneezes and if I don't she makes a huge issue out of it.

God damn bless you.
