Well??
What would you rather?
A snivelling, runny, crusty, blocked nose?
OR
A dry, annoying, itchy, terribly sore throat?

I can never seem to make up my mind. Ever. When I have a sore throat, I say the nose because at least then I can eat, but then when I have the whole kafozzle with the nose, I'd definitely take the sore throat, this is killing me.

I think I've finally decided though, I'll take the sore throat, so long as it's not tooooo bad. This nose business is driving me insane. The outsides of my nose feel like sandpaper.

Sore throat for me. I can't take decongestants because they drive my blood pressure up and make my heart race so the congestion is harder to take for me. Plus generally a sore throat doesn't keep me awake/wake me up at night like not being able to breathe does so I can get some sleep and get over it faster. And I find cough drops or sore throat spray/lozenges help with the throat -- and I can take those.

omg sore throat is the worst thing EVER.
I woke up this morning feeling like shit. Sore throat, back ache, no energy
I would rather have a runny nose, or even a cough, or even a stomach ache than a sore throat.

Agreed. Usually when I have a cold coming on, my throat will get dry and scratchy, which is tolerable. But a sore throat? The worst.

Luckily, I don't usually get a real sore throat with a cold - but I've had strep, and I wanted to die.

Thank god for Tylenol with codeine and living close enough to the Canadian border that I can go across and buy a bottle every few years.

QFT! Having every swallow be painful is SO much worse than runny nose, etc.

Runny nose, without a doubt. Sore throats are horrific.
