Why are people so obsessed with saying "Bless you" after a sneeze?

I posted on a forum that I don't get why saying "bless you" after a sneeze is a social norm. Saying "bless you" doesn't alleviate anything, mentally or physically. Maybe cuz I'm an introvert but: I do not wanna talk to anyone just cuz I sneezed.

Of course I was met w/ hate for saying this. Women, particularly, seem to be really attached to saying "bless you" after a sneeze. 

I KNOW it's a "social norm", but I was just saying...I don't like it. Why do ppl hate me for saying that? What's ur opinion on this? Thx.

    The Urban Dictionary says "bless you" is an old wives tale believing when someone sneezes, their soul leaves their body.  No one is asking you to "talk" just because you sneezed.  It takes all of five seconds to say "thank you."  Discussion is over.

    No one hates you. Stop being so grandiose about everything.
