    Sniff yourself, as soon as you hear her sniff.

    Say loudly: “Bad luck! Got a cold?” and hand her a box of tissues. It can’t cause offence.

    I reckon a good tut would be better – if her sniffing doesn’t bother her it’s likely someone else’s won’t.

    Wait until they both go off to get a coffee put a box of tissues on their desk. Be in the loo when they return.

    ask if she’s got any spare coke ?

    or just say “blow?” and see what she says

    Megadeth/Boyzone/Wagner* on the stereo, loud enough to drown it out.

    * whatever’s least popular with the sniffer.

    I’ve got a sniffer here, too, only mine is also fond of sounding off about ‘big government’ and ‘big pharma’ and ‘big banks’ and similar stuff, so it’s quite hard to hear the sniff around the massive chip. Headphones are the only realistic answer for me. FWIW in the time its taken to type this I counted eight annoyingly loud sniffs.

    oh, chapeau

    3. Whinge to a large bunch of mainly unknown strangers on the internet, and ultimately do nothing about it.

    I move around at work, occasionally sit near a guy who does that throaty sniff (top of mouth, we used to call it shot dragging) every few minutes.

    I’m astonished that the 10 or so people around him seem oblivious.

    Every single one of them is on a different forum, seething.

    I’m pretty sure she’s German, might be interpreted as a friendly gesture.

    She actually looks quite like Dame Sarah Storey.

    For every sniff, burp into you mouth and blow it at them.

    There’s an office visitor sitting opposite me today, working with a more regular visitor. First time she’s been here, and has been sniffing for 45 minutes since I got in.

    1. Just tell her to blow her nose.
    2. Get a tissue from the kitchen, hand it to her in a passive aggressive manner.
    3. Whinge to a large bunch of mainly unknown strangers on the internet, and ultimately do nothing about it.

    Or any better ideas, but be aware if it involves an open bladed knife, I’m going to have to write a pretty stringent risk assessment.

    I had one of these sat opposite me recently. It didn’t hugely bother me but it really bothered the woman behind him. They sit with their backs to each other so it was hilarious watching her get more tense and stressed everytime it happened.
    But, she was never going to say anything so I had to step up.
    I did it in the most subtle of Yorkshire ways:
    Step 1 – wait for the sniff
    Step 2 – “Will you go any blow your bloody nose and stop sniffing!”

    It worked 😀
    Luckily it’s a good enviroment in our office so we can get away with being direct about things.

    I dunno why people think blowing one’s nose is a solution to this problem. If your nose is oozing mucus, then blowing it doesn’t help any longer than sniffing does. But all the mucus ends up on the outside, on tissues and on hands.

    It’s not like people are moving the same single piece of snot up and down all the time.
