Do You Call Them Kleenex or Tissues? [POLL]
A-a-a-aaachooooo! Welcome to flu season 2013.
As you’re sniffling and sneezing you reach for a Kleenex. Or do you reach for a tissue? Which term do you use?
I use Kleenex, the brand name, even when I don’t necessarily mean a Kleenex-brand tissue. I guess it’s because that’s what my parents always said when I was growing up. (Yes, kids, you will some day become your parents.)
I know a lot or people use Kleenex, but I’ve never really heard anyone ask for a Puffs, or a …..well, I can’t really think of any other tissue brand name.
So, please tell us what you say.
