This question already has an answer here:
At the company where I work, we recently started a new project, and I've been assigned to a new team. One of the members of this team is a fellow from India, however the site is located in Europe.
I've been working with people from different ethnicity, that is not a problem, but this guy is constantly sniffling. I've experienced this kind of behavior from other people from India, but this is something extreme - although nothing active noise cancellation can't prevent.
Recently we've been working in pairs, and it looks like I'll be working with him for a while, but his habit is extremely annoying, and very disgusting - not to say unsanitary. I am dreading going to work because of this.
Should I get the management involved, or should I just let it slide, and hope never to work with him again? Or maybe I should just hand him a tissue and tell him "when in Rome, do as the Romans do"?
