Spitters are Quitters

Always salty and usually bitter help encourage the spitter — still better than the wonts and those dreaded donts — saved by the tolerable quitter. ----------------------------------------------------------- Written: 05.08.21 Contest: Quitters Never Win Sponsor: Margarita Lillico

I once thought it might be a good idea To ban the use of the Word (no) in the English language, in favor of something Longer.' Being as yes is longer, so why should It be easier to say an often negative word Than an often positive word ( and you didn't Think me politically correct.?) Anyway I wonder Now on the real consequences of such a move Maybe there is more intricate truth in its Existence than I once gave room for? Is that a Pertinent observation.? (Well it's only two letters long)

*Spitting* is a habit that many will never break. Disgusting indeed. Quitting in this case, makes them a winner. However, on the other side of the coin. Those that quit, will never succeed. ~ Brandy

In the early 2000s, I worked for quarry. I was a smoker back then, but there were a couple guys who chewed. They would complain about the cigarette smoke smell left in the cabins of the machines and I would complain about their disgusting spit cups.

Never understood why people spit. Seems unnecessary. Unless you're chewing tobacco which just makes it even worse. Yuck!! Have a great day.

I agree, it is totally unnecessary, but some still insist.
