I’m not going to beat about the bush and, get straight to the point: I don’t understand why people spit on the roads. In public. With two billion other people around. Do you have to spit like that?
Like, seriously, hold your urges. Hold it like a Victorian lady holds on to her frilly parasol.
I think this flamboyant spitting is the only reason why our country is still stuck in the rut. This, and the fact that people think it is okay – acceptable, even – to do so. Heard of fomite transmission of infections? Spitting causes it. Also, coughing without covering your mouth, which releases your-God-knows-what-pathogens in the air. So if you’re spitting and coughing with your mouth uncovered, you’re actually a mass murderer.
So if you’re an exhibitionist-spitter…
There should be a law against this grossity. Like making the offenders lick the sidewalk/road where they’ve spit. And then making them clean the sidewalk/road with bleach. Or something. What drives me nuts is I’ve seen doctors do it. Doctors are supposed to stay hygienic! And promote good habits. But no. No, no, no. What’s this world come to?
I don’t understand why this would upset me so much, but when you’ve run five kilometers and you see a lovely lady (yes, lady!) spit with amazing precision, and copious amounts of phlegm lands five inches from you, you actually can’t help getting upset, you can’t help thinking, Unholy demonic cesspool of germs, what if IT HAD LANDED ON ME?! It doesn’t help I’m a germophobe either.
Today is going to be a rotten day, y’all. It started with phlegm!!!
