I felt bad for this poor customer who called in today.  But I had to suppress a laugh.  He had the hiccups and he said he's had them for the last two days (as of this post).  If only I'd remembered to suggest the one cure I remember someone telling me about.  A shot of bitters is a sure-fire remedy, apparently.  Personally, I don't have the courage to try it.  But then again, I haven't had hiccups last for more than an hour if even that.  I suppose if I'd had them for 48 hours and absolutely nothing else was working, I might give it a try.  Don't know how that poor guy was able to sleep.  He said he can sleep thru anything, but come on.  You're body is constantly jerking with hiccups.  How do you sleep thru that?

I haven't had them for more then a few minutes. I find eating peanut butter helps get rid of them. I've been using that trick since a kid.

Two days and one night I was physically exhausted afterwards.

No, that's insane. I've only had it for 20 minutes or so at the most.

No. It would drive me nuts.

I remember as a kid reading the Guiness book. A man had the hiccup non stop all his adult life. That made my jaw drop.

I felt the same way when I heard that. How on earth did he NOT commit suicide?

I had hiccups for only 8 hours straight. It was funny at first, but then they started getting in my way of things and I was getting very pissed off.
