    Sitting innocently at my desk I have just had a horrible experience!! Some foul person (child or otherwise) has stuck chewing gum under the edge of the desk I sit at to use my computer!!! It is so disgusting!!!!!!!!!
    Horrified does not cover it!!!!!

  2. Never mind chewiong gum- several times I had spittle or phlegm on my door handle awaiting me when I returned to my classroom after break or lunch. Dirty b astards . I hope life treats the gulty as they deserve

    This makes me feel sick - literally my stomach is churning. How do you cope with this?
    Spitting is the lowest of the low.
    I put my hand on chewing gum on the back of a radiator at school earlier this week. Ugh! I had to de-contaminate myself immediately. This did not, however, turn my stomach as the phlegm/spittle would have done.
  4. I don't have to cope any longer, as I'm retired, but I was disgusted at the time. all I could do was wipe my hand dry, and the door handle , then let the class enter and get on with the lesson. No-one had seen anything, of course, as usual.But it isn't just those with immature brains like teenagers who spit. I once returned to my car outside M & S to find phlegm on the driver's door. Some people, and I must assume they're male, are just dirty b astards
