Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Stepping on Gum

So I’m walking along, minding my own business…..and my shoe gets stuck.

Why?

Because I’ve walked on someone’s discarded gum.

Can I ask why people continue to spit out their gum on our beloved Earth? (I’m being overdramatic there. I’m not one of those Green people. Not that there is anything wrong with being green, I just like my plastic stuff.)

But really. Why must people spit their gum out at all? There are these things called TRASH CANS and they generally are all over the place. If there isn’t one, well, keep the gum in your mouth until you find one.

I’m sick of walking over gum. I’m sick of seeing those black circles sprinkled all over sidewalks and parking lots. Are we THAT lazy, people? (Don’t answer.)

So the next time you think it’s okay to spit out your gum, think again. And if you see someone doing it, yell at them.

Unless they look dangerous. In which case, discreetly take their photo and mock them online.

(But probably block out their face. Because, hello, dangerous.)

  2. Agreed! My mama raised me not to ever spit my gum out on the ground. I've always saved the wrapper and wrapped it when it's done.

  4. I hate stepping on gum but the worst was when someone put it under my car door handle. Ugh. I was extremely disgusted to say the least.

  8. Stepping on somebody's used gum is not just annoying, it's gross. As a germaphobe, I don't appreciate it at all.

  10. I hate stepping on gum too. I did find an easy way to get it off you shoe if you are outside... rub it in sand and then on pavement/sidewalk. I also hate when people put gum in ashtrays. Gross!

  11. I can't even chew gum b/c of my stomach, but I'm always terrified of children spitting it in my hair.

    I'm sorry about your novel. I don't have a problem with endings, but my middles always sag.

  13. I used to intentionally chew on my hair when I was chewing on gum, just to get the gum stuck in it so badly that my mom would be forced to give me a haircut ;)If she managed to get it out with peanut butter, I'd just try harder the next time.

  14. The worst is when someone sticks their gum to a train seat. My Dad used to commute, and it's telling that I know to put the clothes in the freezer to make it easier to chip the gum off...

  15. One of my pet hates too - I had my best pair of shoes wrecked because of gum. Selfish creeps.
