A senior in high school gets suspended for using manners.  All from a sneeze.  Really?

As KDVR reported, a student in Tennessee, says she was suspended for saying “bless you” to another student after that student sneezed.

The high school senior claims she was suspended after saying “bless you” to a fellow student who sneezed during keyboarding class.

The district said there is a strict policy in the keyboarding classroom against “outbursts,” including saying “bless you” when someone sneezes.

They say this policy is in place so that students are not distracted, especially during tests.

Do you agree with how this was handled?  Policy or not, is this ridiculous?
