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