  4. Do you hand a tissue to anyone who sneezes? If I am near a tissue box I have been known to do this

  5. Do you refer to “Happy Hour” as “Snack Time”? No-I refer to “Happy Hour” as “Happy Hour” and enjoy it-lol!

  6. Do you declare “no cuts” when a shopper squeezes ahead of you in a checkout line? I am thinking that!

  12. Do you ask a quiet person at a party if he/she has something to share with the group? Yes~but not in those exact words. I might say: So, how does that make you feel? ROFL!

  13. Do you make little turkey names for everyone at your family’s Holiday Dinner? I do for all of the little turkeys-children

  14. Do you find yourself explaining to a cashier why you bought 24 boxes of crayons when they were on sale? ALWAYS for any of my school purchases
