Spray Painting!

Man 2: Eww! Don't spit on the road!
Man 2: Spitting turns women off by the way.
Sluurrpp - Phat!
Man 2: It grosses them out! Look at her. She has actually turned away in disgust!
Man 1: What should I do then?
Man 2: Follow my lead now.
Man 1: You are eyeing the same girl?
(Chew chew)
Man 1: Careful, its leaking!
(Tip Tip Splash)
Man 1: Trying to keep it in is even worse man! The DAMe is just Not interestED (DAMNED!!

(wiping off)
Man 2: Well, not our fault is it? DAMNED if you do it, DAMNED if you don't.

Of all the habits Indians have, spitting on the road is, by far, the most disgusting and revolting one! While the majority of south Indians prefer decorating the road with flesh colored spit, the North Indians, believe in painting the town red, literally.

This post is inspired by a certain gentleman in bus today, who standing near the bus door, was releasing one rocket after another!

I truly agree, there couldn be anything thats more disgusting that spitting.. The newly built railway station or the newly laid pavement has these rubber stamps of spitters...

I saw a colleague of mine spit his gum into the handwash sink in office and leave today, during lunch! Man, I wanted to kick him in the butt! But all I could do was stare at him and he walked off smiling at me! Aaarggh!

I agree, this habit is downright disgusting. Sometime an autowala keeps spitting & you have to tolerate it till the journey ends. its like 20 times in 20 mins. Its awful. Just like the no smoking campaigns the gov should start one on this. But then these ads will be unbearable to watch I assume.
