Spitting in public is an absolutely disgusting habit. When I walk down the street avoiding big blobs of 'gob', I just wish there were some divine power that would turn it around mid flight and fling it back in the faces of the morons that are doing it, that might just make them think twice and it would amuse the hell out of me!
What the people that do this don't realise is there mucous could be carrying one or more of the many kinds of diseases which have made a startling re appearence, one that springs immediately to mind is TB (Tuberculosis). Spitting on the street is in fact a public health issue as well as a disgusting habit.
How would these people feel if I walked into their living room and spat on heir carpets, which in effect is what is happening when unsuspecting people walk in it and then return home to trample it around their houses!? Then for good measure they or their children sit on the carpet and... well need I go on I think you get the picture!
Spitting in public should be illegal in this country...
In many countries (China for example), because of the disease risk and the fact it is socially unacceptable spitting in public has been made illegal... Dare I suggest that we take the same approach here in this country, or will some bleeding heart liberal jump on me and declare it a persons human right to spit on the pavement?
By the way, I would also like to include spitting out chewing gum onto our pavements in with this gripe for all the same reasons!
