People spit...repeatedly, and just anywhere... I really abhor this practice, it seems to unhygienic and so totally gross...I cant abide them, I once had a suitor who was like this, needless to say we never became us... Do you deem it okay, or also disgusting?

I agree. Spitting is a sign of no "breeding" and civility. I think people who spit conspiciously are those who are inconsiderate. It is downright unhygienic and disgusting! I personally think that if one need to spurt out saliva or something..he may need to do it as discreet as much as possible. For me I find it offensive when you just spit anywhere.

totally!!! When I cough(it's inevitable when I get the flu) and we all know what comes out, I make sure that I bring tissues with me so I could spit there and throw it in trash cans or keep it inside a sealed plastic to be thrown later if I'm can't throw it yet...or spit inside the ladies room if it's available...

Yes, we need to be considerate with the people surrounding us. People who unabashedly spit in the public awfully turns me off.

It's so yucky...I think all people are spitting but we should not do it in public places.It's not only disgusting, you can make some people ill just by spreading those germs.

I totally find spitting disgusting! Imagine spitting on the road, and here comes other people and accidentally stepping on them . The germs is spread! I hope we could be like Singapore, where spitting and sticking gums anywhere is prohibited. If Singapore can do it, why can't we here in the Philippines?

Because the enforcers would be the first not to follow the law if there was ever any law made like that here in the Philippines!!! Imagine the simplest traffic rules can't be followed...people jaywalk all the time...worse police officers do the same!!!

Yes, it is a very disgusting habit and very repulsive too.In my country many people are habituated to eating betel leaves,known as "paan" and after chewing it they spit it out anywhere discoloring walls,pavements and so on.there is a fine for doing this but more often than not people get away by bribing the keepers of the law, who themselves are also into the same habit. I also have seen many eminent sportspersons like footballers, hockey players, cricketeers also spitting on the playing field.Now many of these people are hero-worshipped by,especially the younger generation who are influenced by the mannerisms and idiosyncrasies of such icons and ae copied by them.Of course no laws can change these disgusting habits, its only education,not the book stuff, but moral and civic, which cna do something to change peoples habits.

Oh gosh it is pretty gross and if someone spitting right in front of us is not gross enough. I find that walking anywhere and seeing it on the ground makes me want to gag. Yucky.

Yep, it is gross, for sure, and I used to spit all the time when I used to smoke. And boy, I spat like a man! Now as I look back, I realised how gross the habit was, and am glad I don't do that anymore. I may spit now, as discreetly as the situation allows if I have phlegm (which isn't often, because normally the phlegm doesn't rise up far enough for me to get rid of it orally), but as a rule I don't spit anywhere in public or at home. People who spit left and right are either being smart alec or just plain ignorant. I did it just to be a smart alec.

good thing you've changed...I hope that those people might find it in themselves to change too...because it really can disgust other people..

We are on the same page. I hate it and I, myself would always choose not to spit if there was any other option, and if I really had to, I would definitely go to a proper corner or a trash can.

yes, I do the same...we need to consider other people since we don't live alone in this world...

Funny...While I was out shopping today I was sitting on a bench outside a store to wait for my sister to come out. This man walks out of the store makes a loud hawking noise then spits as he was walking through the parking lot! That is just so gross! Some people are so uncouth! I hate it when people do this and one of these days I am going to get up the nerve to say something to the next culprit!

I agree...it is gross. I don't understand why some think it's ok. Do they need to be told it's disgusting?? People can't figure that out on their own??

I get why people do it and it's because it's convenient. But convenience isn't the answer! I find it disgusting. It's not okay. It's unhealthy. More importantly, it's gross.

Ew yuck your right spitting in public is gross lol I've never done that though I know people who have, and its a nasty habit people don't care where there spitting or how gross it is and looks I never felt comfortable enough in public to do that its just nasty eww.

That absolutely turns my stomach! A lot of people in my town do that and the pavements are covered in very unpleasant goo of every colour! Nose-picking or blowing noses in hankies and checking the contents comes a very close second! My Granny once stopped going out with her suitor because she didn't like the way he blew his nose!

I think people who spit are really disgusting;I don't understand their behavior,but I guess the main explanation is lack of intelligence.I don't think many of them realize how disgusting it is for others to see them.

Yeah its really disgusting to see it. I usually wonder why they even need to spit and usually think they are carrying a disease. I mean I can life with out spit all fay and when I see people do it just wonder what wrong with them. I rarely see this but there are chance I see it, I usually give the meanest look to them and how its grouse to me. I think its bad habit and unhealthy for others.

I hate to see people spitting in the street - or anywhere else for that matter. Football players seem to do it a great deal. Apparently in Britain in the 1930s it was very common but I am pleased to say that we have cleaned up our act at least in that respect. Apart from being unsightly, all that sputum is unhygienic and makes for an unpleasant walk down the road. Definitely disgusting!
