    This is a super serious question worth discussing.

    Stuffy! Both suck, but at least you can breathe with a runny nose.

    The worst part about either is having to wipe that part between your nose and upper lip and then it becoming chapped.

    Are you kidding me, they both suck equally.

    But if your nose is running, you might consider organizing some kind of plan to pursue it and recapture it, lest it not return to your olfactory functions as its primary activity.

    I hate them both, but I hate a runny nose worse.

    When I'm in class, work, meetings, etc. I don't want to be the person constantly going *sniff*.....*snork*.....*sniff-sniff*......hack!!...etc. Also constantly scrambling for a tissue or something, so I'm distracted and half in and out of my seat every 3 minutes. It. Never. Stops. Dripping. I hate it.

    With a stuffy nose I can breath through my mouth like a backwoods moron if I have to, not have a chapped nose, not have a nasty handkerchief/nasty tissues in my pocket, and pretty much get on with my day.

    Also, usually for me a stuffy nose comes after the runny nose, which means I'm one step closer to being through with the whole mess.

    It really depends on what I'm doing that day, and the kind of reason (virus? dust?). Some stuffy/runny noses coincide with a really sore throat from the excess mucus trailing backwards from the top of the nasal passages, and that is probably the worst.

    Runny noses from dust are the best because they don't come with an illness directly attached.

    Runny Noses are the worst.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Runny noses suck. At least stuffy noses don't leave a mess.

    Runny. I hate constantly having to tend to my nose leaking all over the place.

    I hate runny a lot more, since during school I'm constantly making noises and/or getting up every minute. It's especially bad in classes like Band, Lab, or PE, when you have to be focused on what you're doing and not have tissues readily available.

    At the moment, though, I have both a runny and stuffy nose

    A runny nose is the worst. I can never catch it.

    They both suck, but runny nose gives me the worst time.

    Stuff noses are worse because they make my head feel like it's going to implode.

    Stuffy nose. Specially when it's so stuffy you can't smell for 5 years and have to have surgeries. It can run all it wants! At least you an kinda smell then!
