In conversation with Dickolas (Non-random quotes from today, provided with context)

me:
[coughs]

Daniel:
Gesundheit.

me:
Thanks... but it was a cough.

Daniel:
Huh?

me:
A cough.

Daniel:
Don't you say gesundheit when someone coughs?

me:
Nope, you say it when someone sneezes.

Daniel:
So a sneeze is different from a cough in your books then? You view them as separate entities?

me:
Uh... yeah.

Daniel:
Then what do you say when someone coughs?

me:
Um... "Cover your mouth"?

I had the "what do you say to a cough" conversation once with a very quiet female Korean co-worker. To my surprise, she loudly exclaimed, "Robitussin!"

I think I'm coming down with something. Cover you mouth next time you disgusting jerk! Is that any better? I'm sorry if I was too nice before. =P
