Grossed Out

Walking out of the grocery store today, I walked behind a woman. She was in her late 20's, well presented. My appreciation of the day was quickly interrupted by the sound of "splat".
Coming back into consciousness, I looked around. Where did this sound come from?
Much to my shock, I noticed spit on the pavement. My mind was reeling. Did this woman actually spit on the pavement knowing she wasn't alone?
Have you ever wondered if what you were thinking actually spilled out of your mouth? Much to my total disbelieve, the woman spit on the ground again as if to say "yeah, I did it".
Grossed out? You better believe it. Since when do women who drive a Lexus SUV spit on the ground. Since when does any women spit in public? Or in private for that matter? Spitting is considered rude and a socially taboo in many parts of the world. Although I guess spitting is acceptable in the Republic of China. (thank you Wikipedia)
I am appreciative that the wind wasn't blowing in my face.

As I would say to my kids "that is unacceptable." My kids made me watch an episode of Ren & Stimpy spitting in the mall. Unfortunately, I think there is a generation of kids who grew up watching Ren & Stimpy. You said it right - when out in public, watch which way the wind blows!
