Men, Please Stop Spitting In Public





So I'm out walking with my daughter and a man in front of us spits on the sidewalk.

"That's disgusting!" Natalie called out.

The man turned around and glared at us. He looked expectedly at me, as if I was supposed to correct my daughter. But I didn't. Because it is disgusting.

Why do men do this? He's not the first one who has and he won't be the last. (Granted, I know not ALL men do this. I appreciate you. And I know some women do it as well. Please stop.)

Natalie and I stepped around the man's mess. It was white and bubbling against the sidewalk.

Gross.

If this must be done, why can't men be discreet? Why do it where people are walking?



My daughter has called out other men before. So have I. We were in Oklahoma and it was a windy day. A man in front of me spit and I called out, "Not the best thing to do when it's windy." Suppose his spit had smacked me in the face? The dude didn't care. He shrugged and kept walking.

So men: please! Stop spitting in public. Swallow it down or something. Or if you feel you must share your DNA with Earth, do it into a bush.

Please?

And if you refuse, don't be surprised when you hear someone go, "Disgusting!"

    2. I have to agree that not all men do it and women do it as well. My thing is just to look away if it disgusts me.

    3. And to shout "Gross?" ;) I look away, but sometimes I wonder if these people know they are being disgusting?

    4. I have never seen a woman spit in public, not saying it doesn't happen but this seems to be more unique to men.

  8. The only time I spit is when I am running because my mouth gets really dry.

  9. Ewwww! Agreed my husband does this when he's not feeling well- it's the worst. He's about to get a quick talkin-to when his kids point out that it's not polite- can't wait to hear that!

  13. Ugh, I totally agree. So disgusting.

  14. I am sorry but women don't do that! I mean of course there are out there some, as I am sure there are women out there that have thrown out tampons in the streets (being gross is unisex!)but the general practice is a male thing!
    I never understood why this is considered within the norm!
    I used to run in a stadium and every couple of meters there were saliva stains! Why?? Eww people!!

  15. I have to admit, I do this sometimes when I am out for a run as my mouth will start watering. HOWEVER you are completely right, it's disgusting. I think it goes hand and hand with men adjusting their privates in public. I understand the need but they need to be more discreet. No one should be grabbing their stuff like that.

  16. It's so gross and make people around feel disgusted, yet they feel uncomfortable when they see a woman breastfeeding in public.....

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, my goodness, yes. Why do they do this? It's disgusting!

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is an important public service announcement! Why does anyone think it's okay to spit? It's gross!

  21. I thought I was the only who thinks that it's gross! It's terrible and it's also really rude especially when they're walking in front of you. I think it's good that you're calling them out at least they'll be conscious next time.

  22. ARRGGGGGHHH. Disgusting! Would you believe I was walking home and this guy was opening his window... He then proceeded to spit out of his window and LUCKILY I saw him and stopped because otherwise he would have spat on me. ARRRGGGGHHH. I looked at him and said some tasty words and he completely disregarded me. You're in your EFN house!! Go spit in the toilet!! I hate this kind of behavior!!

  23. Truly a disgusting act! I love that she called him out on his shit because I don't think men (some women) understand how gross of a habit it is!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I feel the same way! It's really gross and it shows how insensitive men can be! I hope they realize that but then again they probably won't. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Uh yeah I would say EVERYONE stop spitting. Its a gross habit regardless of gender.

  26. I totally agree with you about it being disgusting when men spit in public. I especially can't stand when they spit a natsy one on the highway and lands on your windshield. That happened to me once and I wanted to vomit because it was so gross!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree, It is totally gross, especially in public for no reason. However, ther are some exceptions, I'm a runner and sometimes you've gotta do it. Just please check that no one is behind you, because I have been on the wrong side of that one!

  28. I love that your daughter called him out!! I don't get it when just walking down the street like that.

  29. I find this habit pretty disgusting. I don't care for spitting on the sidewalk or even in the grass. I'm cracking up that your daughter called him out.

  33. Kids are honest. And its true! I guess for some people its a normal thing to them.

  34. It's the disgusting site you can see when someone spit in public specially in places were kids go. It is how one is brought up during childhood that reflects the action when your adult already.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, this is pretty disgusting for sure. It would definitely be more considerate to do it more discretely.

  38. I find it gross when other people spit. When I'm pregnant I'm very sick. My mouth feels up faster than I can swallow. When I do swallow I gag and throw up. So I spit. In bushes. It is gross. I hate it.
