I exercise by walking or running on public roads. I do this everywhere I travel, and even at home. In my “pounding the pavement” I have come across a lot of things, credit cards (returned), drivers licenses, cash (once I found a $50 bill.. It pays to watch the road…) and more than a few dead animals.
But the one thing that I come across most often is the “spit bottle”. For those unaware, folks who chew tobacco (or “snuff”) while driving need someplace to “spit” the juices. Mostly, they use an old Water bottle, or a Gatorade bottle. Better than just spitting on the road.
But, when it becomes full, do these people find a trashcan to deposit this brown ugly mess? No. They toss it out the window.
Hence I come across them very often.
Please, if you chew, and spit in a bottle, toss it in the trash. It is unsightly, unsanitary, and doesn’t belong on the roadside.
