Dear Ms. Deb… I’m happy you chose Protocol Matters for your students’ expository assignment. How thoughtful of you to keep me in the loop with your email. Thank you! Other than keeping me on my toes, (which is a welcome exercise) you are certainly no trouble.
Spitting in public is nothing new. It’s not unsual when out and about to see youngish swaggering guys launch their slobbery marks in an attempt to appear awesome. However, rather than being a cool macho thing, spitting has long been recognized as inconsiderate, rude, and even childish.
