Nope.  Okay, to be fair, when I’m really sick and have a bunch of phlegm, I use a facial tissue to get rid of it.

Only if I’m really sick and it’s just collecting there but I don’t just do it on the street in public.

I spit when I’m sick or have an extremely bad taste in my mouth but I’ll use a tissue or go to the bathroom, I won’t do it out in public.

I do! But only after Fiance does it and I make sure no one is around. I do it to prove a point by showing him how gross it is. I always say “do you want me going around spitting all the time?!”

Sometimes when I’m out running… but I try to do it in the grass and make sure nobody’s around/looking.

Ew! Oh heck no! I think that’s so gross when men do it, hocking up a loogey in the middle of public.

Besides, when I try to spit it comes out as drool and doesn’t go anywhere but my chin 🙂

Ick, no. There was a 16 & pregnant episode where the girl (I think it was Markai?) was spitting CONSTANTLY as a side effect of the pregnancy (more saliva or something?). She carried around a spit cup. It grossed me OUT!

@hilsy85: I saw a pregnant woman in real life who just kept spitting! I had no idea that could ever be a side effect of pregnancy until I saw that episode about 3 weeks later and then it made sense lol The woman didn’t have a spit cup though, just kept spitting down onto the subway tracks.


I can only remember ever publicly spitting one time. I got fire extinguisher foam in my mouth… Basically someone on campus put their cigarette butt in a giant planter in november. All the plants in it were dead and dry and it was super windy so it started a fire in the planter. A security guard took a fire extinguisher to put it out. It was on the opposite end of the doors and the wind was blowing it across the entire front entrance so i couldn’t go around. I tried to stop and wait for her to stop spraying it, but as i started going she started spraying again and I was right in the middle of what the wind was carrying. Gosh it tasted so nasty that I didnt even think and just reacted and spit right while i was in the revolving door. Embarassed It’s gross, but I made myself feel better by telling myself that the stuff is probably toxic anyway.

I’d rather suffocate in my own phlegm than spit in public. I don’t even like doing it into a tissue because I always seem to fail and get it on my hand…gross.

@Mrs Grape: YES! I am the same way. I openly glare at other people when they do it in public. We’re going to China next year, and it’s a “normal” thing to spit there – even in buses and subway, trains, etc. Not sure how i’m going to deal with that – as a microbiologist it just repulses me!!

Never! Never! Never! Spitting is quite possibly the most disgusting thing in existence and I only do it if I absolutely have to (but NEVER in public).

I used to never ever spit in public.  And then I went to China.  In China spitting is taken to a whoooole different level than it is here.  You think that a guy coughing up a lougie and spitting it on the grass is gross?  In China guys spit EVERYWHERE and ALL THE TIME.  Seriously, on the bus?  Spit on the floor.  In a restaurant or hotel room?  Spit on the floor (hotels provide cheapo slippers because of this).  So, I was a bit desensitized by spitting.  I wouldn’t do it, but the pollution in some parts of China is so awful that I’m still getting lougies all of the time now- six months after coming back to the states!  However, I only spit when I am certain that there is no one around.
