I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed this lately but alot of folks seem to think that it’s socially acceptable to use the streets as a place to blow their nose or spit. I personally have a HUGE problem with this. We are constantly being reminded to wash our hands and sneeze or cough into our sleeves to prevent the spread of germs and we all know that touching doorknobs or high fiving one another also spreads germs. So how is it that some people feel that it’s okay to spit and blow their noses in public spaces? As I ordered at the drive through window of our local Tim Horton’s, I watched a man (I was going to call him a gentleman like I usually do, but I have no respect for this fellow) blow his nose openly onto the sidewalk. What happens when someone walks through his germs, walks into the restuarant….you know where I am going with this. I didn’t have the guts to tell him off and perhaps my silent disgust at some peoples’ behaviour only serves to silently condone that same behaviour. Perhaps I need to become more vocal.
