I’ve noticed a few co-workers, particularly of Asian descent, feeling quite comfortable picking their nose in plain sight. Is this common?

I can’t say for sure, but I’ll tell you that in Hong Kong there is a lot of debate about teaching locals not to spit in the street, and there’s a current joke: ‘”How do you break a Chinese kid’s finger? Punch him on the nose.” Maybe it’s just something there’s less taboo about. On the other hand, eating with your fingers revolts many Chinese.

I think it’s just generally lax standards in the workplace. My VERY Caucasian boss not only picks his nose, he scratches his crotch and butt, and generally behaves in a manner I would normally associate with a high school dropout or truck driver.
