Spitting out my disgust!

Did I mention I hate people who spit on the roads???

I am sure I must have, and hate them I do!

This morning when I was going to office on my scooty, this absolutely disgusting man moving on a scooter ahead of me spat a mouthful, and it landed straight on my helmet visor, thank God for the visor it would have been my face!!!

And that did it!

I chased him till the next signal…and as soon as he stopped I just caught hold of him and shouted my head off. And surprisingly, he was an educated man! And I was so grossed out…I was close to abusing him in front of everyone who gathered there suddenly. I told him to never get his ass on roads again (not that he took me seriously or even listened to me but I was so angry I didn’t even care he was at least 20 years older than me).
And the worst part is, all he said was – "Sorry, I didn’t see you were behind me..."

WTF!

What difference does it make you stupid man!! You are bloody spitting on the road and you don’t even regret it despite a public affront. And I was so sickened I just left from there. I mean what can you say to an educated man when he knows what he is doing and doesn’t care…let alone regret it. One can expect an illiterate to understand once taught, but what can one do about these educated illiterates???

that was good of you. I have a similar experience, in fact. I was walking from my college towards my transport pickup van, when a guys reddish disgusting spit landed on my bag. He was at the window seat of the bus. My friends were also with me, and we picked up small pebbles and hurled at that guy, then walked way.
I felt good then, though I had gone against the conducts in front of the public. But didn't he too?

@ Indrayani

Thanks Indrayani, I had no idea you read my blog. Thanks a lot!

As for whether it will end...i doubt it, coz if people were willing to change here, it would have been a better place long back.

I dont like spitting on road, but I dont have anything with others spitting on road as long as they dont spit on the tarred side of the road, but when they dont look around before spitting it freaks me out. Especially those who spit from a bus or a Lorry, down to the road, the spit is all going to be on the bikers. I had a post written on Spit once here http://howyoudoin.info/archives/204 .

I know how that feels.. seeing such educated people doing such gross stuff.. a rickshaw walla doing it is another thing, though still unacceptable, but an educated man? Pity.
