While I was on the deep south side yesterday, I was treated to an odd and ridiculous occurrence. I was standing in the principal's office, setting up a cart of new iPads when a parent comes into the office right outside the door. Not only does he have a dip in (tough to hide it when it is the size of a golf ball) and our school campuses are tobacco-free zones, but he is carrying his spitter with him. And using it. No one says anything to him and he obviously is a regular because the office manager knows him and they strike up a friendly conversation. The principal also stops to say hi on his way by. The whole time the dude is spitting into an empty Sprite can. Thumbs down.
