This happened about 30 minutes from my home.
I hope this guy gets charged with assault. I can't imagine being spit on by a total stranger - and I'm one of those germ people.
It's the organization Stupid!(Just in case he's got a laptop and is reading this in the cell). You can't blame the individuals who donate their time to stand there and ring that stupidly loud bell with half of the people giving him a dirty look, some wondering how much he's skimming off the top (I wonder, it's why if I donate I write a check. We've had a history of that in this area.)The bell ringer is a volunteer who most likely goes home with a splitting headache dreading his next shift.

Well, that's rude - and dangerous - and that's unacceptable behavior, but I'll tell you, those bell-ringers need to stay hidden until after Thanksgiving. Let's see...bell ringers - have to be Salvation Army...and there is absolutely no reason the Salvation Army needs money so bad they have to start bell ringing somewhere between Halloween and Thanksgiving. How about, and this is just a thought, how about each SA officer family give up one of the enormous SUVs they all have TWO of...then they'd have plenty of money to fund their projects. Like I said, just a thought.

It's impossible to contract HIV through the saliva in spit - the HIV virus does not survive outside the human body and there is not enough HIV in saliva to cause infection in another person.

Transmitting hepatitis through saliva is usually only possible with Hepatitis B and Hepatitis A. In order for a person to contract Hepatitis C, there must be an exchange of blood. Hepatitis B is more commonly spread through saliva by means of kissing and oral sex. It is possible to transmit Hepatitis A through saliva if oral contact is made with a contaminated source. Symptoms of the three forms of the disease are very similar and damage to the infected person's liver may occur.

I hope this helps you understand the difference.

I would have smashed him in the "head" with my bell and damage his copper clappers.

Just before he spit he could be heard muttering, the bells, the bells!!!

He should have never watched that movie before shopping this time of the year.

Movie in question, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame.

They do give food to the needy at Thanksgiving, why do you think they start ringing after Halloween? DUH.

Also, their CEO makes a lot less money than that of the Red Cross, UNICEF and many other "Charity organizations." Check out their tax returns. Match their record against any other and you'll find that the SA gives more of the dollars donated to the hungry, poor and needy than any other organization. Sure, you have some unscrupulous people in any charity, but mostly they give to those who truly need it.
