You know what I wish people would teach their kids?

Not to spit all over the place in public.

We were at the amusement park today and every time I turned around, some kid (usually a boy) was spitting on the ground. Also, a lot of grown men appear to think it is OK as well.

Ugh. Gross.

I taught my kids early on that spitting is not acceptable.

It is one of my pet peeves.

Done now.

I have always, ALWAYS, disliked spitting in public.  I don't care who you are or how old you are.  It is rude and disgusting.

Let me add burping to your complaint.  Now, I get that we all do it and, at times, we don't really have a choice.  But for goodness sakes, don't be crude and rude about it, do it on purpose and for the love of bob, say excuse me.

Far too many people lack common courtesy in public.

And either squat or whip it out to pee where ever they are.

I witnessed that, as well as the spitting and the blowing of noses, far too many times while in Okinawa.

As we were leaving, this big guy turned his head and spit, hitting my 4 year old right on top of the head. His son then spit too, and almost hit him too.

It was right there at the tip of my brain!

OMG, I can't deal with it when people do that. Some people get squeamish around blood, I get that way with spit. (I don't even like typing the word, seriously.) SO RUDE AND DISGUSTING. And totally unsanitary. Ugh.
