Another classless pos spitting in someone's face
pushing someone is one thing but spitting in someone's face is another altogether, yet the crime is the same. I give a lot of credit to the employee for having self control, somebody spits in my face, chances are I'll be the one getting arrested.
Speaking of spitting, it may surprise no one that I find the practice disgusting. But last week, for the first time in my years on the planet, I witnessed a new low, in my view.
A young woman -- I'm guessing no older than 22 -- was walking down Jackson Street. She had long medium brown hair and was wearing denim shorts, a peasant blouse about the same color, and sandals.
I live on the Southside and I drive down Jackson regularly. I don't recall seeing her before and thought she looked like a pretty young lady.
Right at that time, she casually turned her head toward the street and let a big wad of spit fly out her mouth and kept walking. She did it with the aplomb of a Major League baseball player. I was aghast.
While, I don't think the practice makes anyone look well-mannered, it seemed particularly unseemly for a pretty young woman to do it in broad daylight on a public street and I felt I had witnessed a coarsening society grow just a tad -- make that a wad -- coarser. In any event, I lost my appetite for lunch.
Those who purposely spit in people's faces, male or female, are beyond my ability to discuss here.
