    The reason I bring this up is because a woman a work sneezes in fits -- as in 5-8 times. It freaked me out the first time she did it. Me? Just once, 99% of the time.

    Really depends on the cause.

    Generally I'll sneeze twice, though sometimes it's only a single, sometimes it can be quite a few more (if there's enough stimuli).

    Once, but it rocks Richter scales. I also really like sneezing, it's like an orgasm from my nose.

    I'm a chronic sneezer. I'll usually sneeze twice, sometimes three times. Basically until whatever is irritating my nose is out.

    And you know what i hate about america? Everyone will say bless you. Like it doesnt matter where i am, if i sneeze in america, someone will say bless you. And it annoys me because 1- i don't like talking to strangers so i don't want to have to say thank you after and 2 - I frankly find it rude that you acknowledge that you heard my sneeze and in fact paid enough attention to it to say bless you and also...i feel its passive agressive sometimes though that's probably just me being paranoid and what's more, there's a chance i will sneeze again in a few seconds and you shouldn't have to feel like you have to say bless you again but you probably will anyway which just makes it awkward for everyone. And what if i have to sneeze a third time? So please america, stop saying bless you when people sneeze. It's especially terrible for us chronic sneezers. And for the record i don't want to be blessed. What does that even mean? Well, I don't care whatever it means... Don't talk to me, i don't know you, and because i don't know you it's not like you actually mean it anyway, it's just a stupid thoughless habit. Don't do it.

    Two is the minimum for me. Four or five is common. More than five is pretty rare. Getting onto a sneeze roll sucks.

    I prefer for people not to say "bless you" when I sneeze as well, but it's just a custom.

    Once, many years ago, a guy sneezed in the library so I looked up and said "damn you!"

    Just for the look on his face.

    My buddy from high school had a crazy sneeze. Instead of the standard "achoo", it was like "achoo-ch-ch-choo-ch-choo!" It'd be like seven sneezes in under two seconds, as if his sneeze had a bad stutter. Kinda scared me a bit.

    Hahaha!

    Me personally I don't say "Bless you" when someone else sneezes because the custom is obviously superstitious in origin.

    My whole life, it was once. I moved to New Hampshire in October 2011, got the flu shot in November, now I sneeze in multiples. Usually three or four each time.

    Don't be so ungrateful. Those kindly strangers have prevented you from developing full-blown bubonic plague.
