Some things can’t be helped, some things can be. Sometimes I see horrible things outside and it gives me the same reaction, when I was younger, I would often heave and almost be sick! Now I’m older I don’t heave as much when I see either, even though one can be helped and the other can’t.
The horrible thing that I don’t see as often, is gross, but the nasty thing I see often, can be helped and I think there should be an on the spot fine, realistically £10 each time, that I think would eradicate it.
Vomit that we see on the street can’t be helped but spit can be, there is NO excuse for it! In the Summer when there are lots of flies, at least five times in my life a tiny fly had gone in my mouth, and I’ve had to spit it out! But there is no way on Earth I’d spit on the ground for no reason, some seem to do it as a ‘fashion’ statement, I think to say, “I’m hard,” no one cares!
This week, I’ve seen SO much of it on the street, all different sizes and colours, there is no need for that amount. I think a £10 on the spot fine, would stop this disgusting habit overnight! I think it is against the law, but I don’t think anyone has been prosecuted, well they should have stiffer penalties!
It would be interesting to see, I’d sign the petition, if there was one!
