Ok so at work, head to the restroom to wiz, there are two urinals, enough people work here that a lot of the time someone else walks in to wiz too, so they walk up and proceed to spit into the urinal, as if this somehow deems it worthy of a pee. (?) I didn’t notice for a while, but a lot of folks seem to be doing this. Did I miss the memo?

Anyone else notice that people spit in urinals? Did I not get trained in some guy etiquette or something?

Guess it's better than spitting on the floor...?

I hate 'spitters' (especially on windy days!)

I've noticed it. Usually done by guys that are more thuggish than others.

Another disgusting habit IMHO.

Can't say I've noticed anyone spitting in urinals, but there's a large amount of "dippers" here, and they're constantly spitting... everywhere. On the ground, in the parking lot, in the trash cans... Actually, the trash cans bug me more then anything else. At my work, we frequently have to reach into the trash cans to retrieve paper work. (For example, a customer says he doesn't need/want his receipt, then comes back 5 minutes later deciding he does.) I wouldn't mind near as much if they'd stick to the "public" cans outside to spit in, but when they're in the store, and they step behind the counter to spit in my can back there, then I get pissed. I don't like non-employees coming behind the counter in the first place, but when its to spit their dip-spit in my can, that I may have to put my hand in! grrrrr.

I spit occasionally. Sometimes I have excess saliva/goop that I would rather not swallow. The toilet seems like the ideal place to put your bodily fluids. People should try to be discrete about it but that sure beats spitting in front of ladies.

Yeah thats probably it.
I was starting to think it was like a silent, "hey hows it going" or something. Maybe next time it happens I should spit too. heh

You only have to turn on a football match on UK TV to see the 'macho' football players spitting every few seconds. I think they should be fined every time they do it. It is a disgusting and filthy habit. And of course, all the brain-dead fans who emulate their heroes think they are 'macho' too. How low and stupid can you get!!!!
Believe me, as my teacher used to say at school...the stomach is far better equiped to deal with whatever it is you want to get rid of, than the open air.
Scum.

I spit. If I blow my nose, too often, my nose left nostril will bleed(yep, it's been cauterized twice and lasts about 2 months). Would you prefer me to spit in a urinal or try to teach your kid math while my nose is bleeding?

I'm guessing you're a city boy? Don't take that as a flame, it's not intended that way. Some think spitting is disgusting, some think it just part of living. Me, I don't care either way but, don't spit into the wind and don't tug on Superman's cape.

Yeah, as a general rule, I don't spit unless there's anything in my mouth that I need to get rid of... like some nasty food, or a nasty taste in my mouth...

Other than mouth-wash in the sink every morning... I can't think of the last time I spit...

I have noticed that a bunch of people take leaks and walk out like it's nothing... I mean, without washing their hands.

Surely all those millions of spitters out there aren't in your situation. You got a pass, as far as I'm concerned.
I never understood spitting, except in desperate (rare) circumstances. But since everybody's doin' it, there must be something wonderful about it that I just don't get.

I rarely spit atall. I think the last time was with my good luck cigar on the lake ice fishing. Tradition shows that you smoke the cigar, and when the tobacco begins to run into your mouth you spit it into the ice hole, next thing you know, you have a bite on the line. and yes i caught 5 perch and one bluegill last time i went.

I spit more than I am happy about due to allergies and excessive mucus. If I try to swallow all I make, my stomach will expel all of it. It is not consistent and I will try to save for the toilet. I suspect the reason splitters may look thuggish is because they may be asthmatics and developed the large barrel chest that they and some athletes develop. I work out maybe a little because I want my arms to match my chest.

Now this, I have noticed. I work retail, so I probably use a public restroom more than the one at home. Men are disgusting, and I have started grabbing the door handles with a paper towell when exiting the bathroom.

that's normal now a days, to think to watch for is when you walk in the men's room and find a girl coming out of the stall and spitting in the urinal.

I do currently work in a city, don't really live in one. Was raised until age 17 on a farm though, didn't spit there either. But really this thread was more in just a fun mood, wondering what was up with it. I don't care, really the restroom is the best place. It almost seems like a ritual people do. I did yesterday notice pieces of chew tobacco in the urinal, maybe that many people chew.

Any spitting evolks the gag reaction for me. Its totally grosse. Id rather someone pee or crap in the bushes myself. I agree its a 'macho' thing. They feel cool spitting every 5 minutes.
