Never went through this but on similar lines one guy wrote his name on a dust filled rear glass of my car. I stopped the guy and asked him to wipe the car in presence of his friends.

Ramie, ur friend did the right thing in giving the guy a proper spanking.
He would defintely not repeat the same.

I almost fell victim to such an occurence on my way to work while at Marathalli (Bangalore). I was stuck in a traffic jam (so, whats new??!!) on my bike and there was a school bus belonging to "Ryan International School" beside me. There were some kids probably 3-4 th graders who decided to have some fun in the midst of all this chaos imitating Di Caprio n Kate Winslet from Titanic, by spitting out on innocent passer-bys. I sensed the looming danger, and did not move till i had space on my side, and then squeezed my bike in between an Indica cab. The guy who probably had been seeing this tamasha allowed me to pass thorugh, among the rarest of rarest times when a cabbie has actually allowed one to get in front of him. Was contemplating on whether to go n give those kids a pice of my mind, but then decided against it. Spoilt lill brats n bratties..

Guys i think everyone on our TBHP is against this kind of nuisance, this is the thing which we see everyday when we are out on roads feels like this has become a part of our life,but believe me its making us sick.its high-time now some solution has to be made to stop this.Each individual has to take the initiative in keeping our cities clean and treating it as our home.

Well for the knockout we did to the guy we still feel very uncomfortable about the issue.

In all fairness, I don't think violence is the answer.

I agree completely with making the perp clean it with his hands off your car. But then there are issues.
Like for example when a 6 ft 4 inch so called yeti asks the guy to clean his car, there's a good chance it will happen.

However imagine Stuart McLittle getting mad and yelling at a big guy for spitting. He may not succeed in making the guy clean his car.

What's my point here? I don't know really.

Nobody's spit over/on me yet. If that changes, the spitter's saliva glands will cease to exist. Along with some other organs.

I think you should overturn my auto rickshaw.

And now let's not take this further and hijack a deeply meaningful and thought provoking thread.

I don't think what Ramie's friend did was wrong, if you're going to spit it is YOUR responsibility to see where you do it & make sure it doesn't fall on any person/vehicle. It is best not to spit but sometimes you can't help it (like when you have a severe cold) but if you're a pan/guthka/chewing gum etc. eater then the person should be very careful since you will spit it on a regular basis.

Basic problem occurs due to lack of manners & common sense in our society & that is why people don't bother seeing where or on what they are spitting. I agree what Sam did was a bit extreme but that can happen at his age then & all the pent-up rage that young people have.

But my question & I've always had this dilemma is what happens after a rainy day if you're driving in town in heavy traffic with pedestrians nearby & your car's wheel goes into a puddle & creates a splash of the muddy water onto the pedestrians. This despite the fact that you're crawling & honking to make them aware of your presence. What do you do then? Do you apologise or just drive away?

I've tried my best to avoid this but despite that it has happened a few time & has always left me feeling a bit bad about it even though I tried my best to avoid it. What do you guys do in a situation like this?
