Public displays of expectoration
When did people (besides truck drivers) decide it was acceptable behavior to spit in public?! This has always been a pet peeve of mine and, down south in redneck country, it’s more common than I care to admit. But I did not expect it to be more common still in New York City! It’s even equal opportunity, with the women spitting in the street as much as the men! Unabashedly! Please - blow your nose loudly next to me, let your dog piss on every surface in sight, fart, I don’t care - just do not hock up a lugie in my path. It is Revolting with a capital R and you should be ashamed of yourself.
