But, if you do - that's great! After all, just b/c someone is a hitchhiker doesn't mean they are a bad person, perhaps they just ran out of gas, or something.
I'm not saying that I do apply that reasoning to every aspect of my life, I simply said that just because I have a piercing doesn't mean I'm unprofessional. Everyone, I don't care who you are, judges people they meet in life, we all do it..Does that make it right? No, but you can't stop those people from judging you. If someone is a hard worker, honest, and has good work ethic and attitude, a small piercing shouldn't be what holds that person back. That's how I feel about this whole situation. You make yourself who you are, no one is going to do it for you and if you let people try to lead your life they'll take advantage of you and you'll never be in control of your own future...If in the future I should have to take my piercing out for a job, I MAY..but I don't look at someone with piercings and think "Oh I bet they're lazy..they do drugs...I bet they have tattoos...They must not have a job..Why would they want that piercing??" I don't think like that...If someone wants a piercing..so what? It's THEIR body and their decision on whether or not to have the piercing or tattoo..
OP, as far as blowing your nose and it coming out..I've never had that happen..Nor does it collect nasty little things.
