    ...please watch where you spit.

    I was approaching the entrance of my local Lowes today. Two guys were bent over examining one of the riding lawn mowers. As I passed by them, the guy nearest to me turned his head and spit his tobacco juice on the ground next to my foot. He was very apologetic, but good grief! He could have ruined a good pair of $29.99 Payless dress shoes.:steamed:

    Even if he hit your 30 dollar payless dress shoes let's put this into perspective.

    Who really gets the short end of the straw by the end of the day, the guy who is addicted to something that poses great potential to amputation of half his face, or you with some scuffed up crappy shoes? :supergrin:

    Pretty nasty stuff though if you ask me.


    We need to start a war on tobacco, for the children. :crying:

    I HATE chewing tobacco threads - I "have to" :upeyes: open them -

    I quit 12+ years ago - and every time I read a chewing tobacco thread my jaw tightens up - the same feeling I had for months after I quit.

    I now have the desire to go buy 3 cans of Kodiak (wintergreen). :steamed:

    Put one can in the left cheek - one can in the right cheek - and have one can for later.

    Good thing he didn't spit on your $5,000 watch. :rofl:

    I do some pretty stupid things. Mainlining nicotine through the thin tissue of the mouth was never one of them. . . unless you count cigars (which I don't let sit in my mouth and get all slimy.) LOL

    When I about five years old I was walking through the kitchen and saw a two-liter of coke sitting on the table. It had about two inches of liquid remaining at the bottome of the bottle. I figured it would go to waste if I didn't drink it, so bottoms up.

    It was pure tobacco spit.




    Now on another occasion, I just got a few chunks in my mouth when I was riding in the backseat and my dad leaned out the window to spit, but the wind brought enough back into the car to coat my face.

    My MIL used to chew tobacco and spit and she also smoked like a steam trail going uphill. When she tried quitting she used the patch and continued to chew and smoke as well. Then she tried the nicotine gum with the patch and still chewed and smoked.
    Fortunately she is now dead.

    If two guys are looking at a riding lawn mower, the one that looks like Dirty Steve from Young Guns will probably spit on your shoe if you walk too close.

    I quit a year ago January. I'm thankful but I do miss it. Maybe on my death bed I'll put a can in. "Hello Jesus...hang on while I spit!!"

    One of THE funniest things I did once...a friend and I chewed snuff at work. He would use a beer or soda pop can to spit in but he would completely cut out the top first AND he would not dump it till it was lip level full. Well guess what I did? Yep. Went to his bench one day, reached over for 'the can' and spilled the whole damn thing on his bench. 12 oz. of spit all over his bench. We laughed our asses off.

    At least they weren't the kind who spit in water fountains.

    I dip snuff, I try and not spit where it could gross someone out too bad, but...spit happens.
    My Uncle Slim chewed Red Man and he was pretty much dying, but hanging on just long enough to piss off the other half of the free world until he passed.
    I was riding in his truck and a young guy and his date cut us off twice in traffic. My Uncle smiled and spit in a 3/4 full 7/11 cup as we pulled up to a light. "Nice convertable Kid, did your Daddy buy that for you?" he yelled. The Young Man flipped him the bird and my Uncle flipped the cup in to the kids lap with a nice back spin and a flip. "Y'all have a great Day, Nice Car!" He said with a smile.
    The scene behind us was complete Chaos, screaming, tobbaco spit dripping, assorted wretching and some vomiting. My Uncle, who was at least 70 at the time laughed until he had tears in his eyes; then complained he needed a new cup.
