I totally agree with Mr Bingham (Mailbox, November 1), but down Winsover Road I don’t just have to keep an eye out for people biking on pavements but also to dodge all the spit.
There is nothing worse than coming home from the school run to find that I’ve trailed somebody’s saliva through the carpet from the wheels of a child buggy.
In my job as a postman I walk for about six hours a day and I don’t feel the need to spit everywhere I go. To anyone finding that they keep getting an excess of saliva build up in their mouth, I suggest they go and see a doctor to get it sorted out.
On a brighter note, I did witness somebody walking past my house a couple of weeks back who attempted to spit on the pavement but accidently spat on his own jacket which I found highly amusing and made me feel that there maybe some justice in this world after all.
