Question of the Day

Why is there no phrase to be said after someone hiccups?  You could sneeze in the middle of the street and a complete stranger will lean over and say "bless you" or "gazundheit".  Let me remind you that a stranger in New York City saying anything to you other than "outta my way" is something of note.  But suddenly I sneeze and they're blessing me!  It gives me the warm fuzzies.  Meanwhile, I hiccup - an act that brings any conversation to an awkward pause - and nobody says anything.  I can tell they want to, they just don't know what it is they're suppposed to say.  Any suggestions?
