Welcome back to Ask Suzy Q, VOTW’s newest advice column, and your destination for advice about life’s daily problems! Sorry, we’ve been missing for a while – AP Exams really took it out of us! Just a reminder to email your problems to us to have Suzy Q give her advice at! All problems are held in the utmost confidentiality.

Let’s start things off with our newest question:

Dear Suzy Q,

There’s this girl in one of my classes who’s really, and I mean really, weird. One time, she was picking her nose (a common occurrence) and she, with a flourish, ate the whole thing! It’s extremely cringe-inducing even writing about it now. Should I be a good person and ignore her? Or should I tell her that she’s being really gross? I need to do something.

 Dear Totally Grossed Out,

I totally get how you feel. However, telling her that she’s being gross could make the situation a lot worse. The best way to handle this is to just let her learn and change as a person at her own pace. When I was a freshman, I was such a weirdo. I would do so many cringe-worthy things. (I must refrain from mentioning them here, for they were so awful). Now, I‘ve learned from the past and become a better person. She might also have some problems at home and may have developed this habit that somehow makes her feel better. (Even if it is disgusting). I would suggest that you just try to ignore her and focus on other things.
