Recently, I saw a city ordinance sign that said "DO NOT SPIT ON SIDEWALK" (it wasn't a real ordinance here...this particular sign was a novelty in a restaurant). It occurred to me that it's becoming rare to see people spit in public anymore. So do you? Are you grossed out when you see others do it?

I do, but tend to spit when others aren't around...say in a parking lot by my car, for example.

I do, but always do the check for visible people first. Then try for a bush/garden/gutter.

As long as the wind isn't blowing in my direction, yes, I do it.

Only if absolutely nobody can see me....except my best friends and immediate family, they don't count.

But if something like a bug flies into my mouth, then it's just a instant knee-jerk reaction. At that moment I don't care who see's me spit.

Actually, I don't spit at all, ever.

I do it constantly, without even realizing it. It's just a habit, for some reason. I don't know where it comes from (the habit, that is. not the spit).

Ever since my dentist pulled out a tooth, she advised me not to spit for a while, so the habit quickly died.

...Only in the face of people who aren't cool....


No way. I think spitting is unacceptable. Unless you have a phlegm inducing cold you shouldn't be spitting at all (Id rather not see your phlegm but it is far worse for me to think of you swallowing it...sorry for painting that picture).

Never. It's just disgusting, like watching a fat guy pull his shirt up and scratch his bare stomach while in deep thought.

In private, or alone...yes. If I had a bottle of water nearby all the time, I'd probably not, but it's not always practical to carry one with me.

Not ANYWHERE, but if I have to, I'll do it into a trashcan.

Only if I have a dip in and if I really need to spit bad enough.

Loogies only and never where people walk. It goes in the flower bed, the trashcan, anywhere but where people will be.

I gotta say that you people are way more polite than I am. I don't spit much, but I tend to do it in the parking lot where my work is. I don't know why, but I have no qualms doing it in front of fellow workers in the lot.

I'm sure I do it a lot more than I think I do as well.
