@LMD:  Uh yeah.  You either need to confront this dude or talk to his supervisor or HR.  

What he’s doing is not only disgusting, its unhygenic.

I was JUST starting get really, really hungry but am trying to wait until 12:30 or so to eat my lunch. This did the trick! Appetite gone for now!

@LMD:  I can’t stand when people are sick/hacking at their desks.  I would’ve flipped out if I saw him doing that in the kitchen! EWWWWW. Second the go-to-HR (or at least supervisor, someone) motion, keep it from happening again! ICK.

@LMD:  Where was this guy raised? In a barn? Super unsanitary especially since you don’t really know what he was sick with and how contagious he really is. Last year, a coworker on the floor above us had MEASLES. Yes, measles. There was a firmwide email sent out about it. I would send HR a discreet note if I were you.

And for your sake, keep washing your hands (preferably at another sink), drink lots of water, and take echinacea.

@Zhabeego:  +1. I’d be a bit grosses out if I saw someone doing that in the bathroom let alone the kitchen. This is definitely not okay and I am sure HR could address is anonymously.

Ya people are pretty gross.

Just a few mins ago I was at my desk looking out of my window when this woman who looks like she might be a prostitute is walking around hawking loogies. Ummm…….. Who are you, what are you doing in this nice business park?

I don’t get why people are like that.

I would certainly speak to HR, no one should need to worry that someone is hacking and spitting all over where people eat when that stuff can be done in a bathroom! 

Heck, I hear that every morning from the guy above us in our apartment and it makes me sick to my stomach to need to listen to it!

I have a pretty strong stomach – bodily fluids usually don’t bother me. But listening to people and their nasty loogies just makes me gag every time. I’m queasy just from reading that post. Ugh. Definitely go to HR.

@LMD:  Disgusting!  We have a friend that stays with us every few months and he hacks up phlegm into our bathroom sink and then leaves it there so I end up having to wash it.  Ick ick ick!!!!  Nobody wants to see that!  Spit into the toilet and flush it or use a tissue and throw it away.  Future moms of boys, please dear lord teach your sons to not do this at all or at least in the privacy of the bathroom.
