Man,Thats something that grosses me out....
Why couldnt she do that in private in the bathroom.
If i saw my kid do that i would probably smack his hand.
If someone HAS to pick their nose dispose of it properly and do it in private!
You have to say something!dont worry about hurting feelings...

Unless she's flinging bogies around the room, don't say anything. Poor little old woman.

About the only thing you could safely do is use humor.

Saying something like "pick a winner" under your breath everytime might give her the message.

If she says, "What did you say?"

You reply, "Pick a winner!"

Then you're embarrassed, but the problem is solved.

My dad is getting so stupid---er old that he many times forgets to zip up his fly. I go to my mom and put it on her; "We're having guests come over, it's your job to make sure dad zips up his fly!" If she fails, I say, "Hey! Old man! Zip up your damn fly! Whatdoyawanna do! Make us sick?"

I'm bad that way. But that's how I roll.

Speaking of the nose picking, I guarantee about 30% or more people you see at a stop light here in Colorado will be up to their 1st knuckle everytime! This must be the nose-minning capital of the World!

Oh! How do ya make a Kleenex dance?
























Put a little bogey in it.

Do you have children? They could easily say, "Hey Grandma that's gross"
Handing her a kleenex every time she does that might help. She might get the drift. I think probably most people pick their noses but learned early on it is certainly inpolite to do that in public. You only need to drive down the road and watch people in cars

I think you could also clap your hands and scream " MANNERS" when shes all up in it.

Puppies understand that.
