An Open Letter to Miss Manners

Dear Miss Manners

What is a person to do when one enters a store and the shopkeep has a bit of toilet paper stuck to his eyelid?

I wanted to say, "Hey there, fella! You have a bit of paper on your eyelid!" But then I thought that it might be there for a reason and after I thought about it for a while and decided that it was an accident it was too late to say something because if I did he'd be like, "Has that been there the whole time? You just NOW tell me?"

And what accident results in toilet paper stuck to one's eyelid?

I know, just last night I had peanut butter really close to my eye, but I'm sure there's a perfectly innocuous, not embarrassing reason for that.

Anyway, I didn't say anything but it was only just then that I realized I wasn't mentally prepared for that sort of situation.

So, what's a person to do?
