    ?Spit Assault? Gets N.Y. Bus Drivers Months Of Paid Leave | Judicial Watch

    Gee whiz. I wonder how many cops and teachers are victims of spit assaults each year. Here's an idea. Instead of giving the bus drivers "spit time" maybe they should change the penal code and arrest the disgusting assailants?

    How much spit time does your employer offer?

    I believe the appropriate response to be "Oh My God! NYC is run by morons."

    Yes they are. And in order to pay for all that spit time they are now proposing another millionaire's tax (which is currently at 200K) up to 13 percent. They, like NJ, want to race CA for the first state bailout.

    You disagree with time off for being spit upon, but yet you want to spend the same, if not even possibly MORE money to put someone in JAIL for spitting? Ridiculous.

    How about BOTH morons just receive a solid kick to the ass, get told to tape a fucking aspirin to it, and we just move on with our days?

    I concur!

    To answer the question, I've never been spat upon, but I've been spat up on. I am no longer willing to hold someone's child shortly after feeding if I'm wearing a nice shirt unless they provide a towel to drape over my shoulder and I'm in a good mood.

    Any doctor who is allowing someone a month or two off for getting spit on is committing fraud to the highest degree.

    If I had a bus driver come to me who had been spit on, I would review with them the potential health hazards, possibly run some tests, and tell them that they were cleared to return to work tomorrow.

    No jail tine would not be appropriate, Please don't put words in my post. A hefty fine, perhaps a public transit expulsion, and or a saliva bath might be a good deterrent.

    People who do this should be shunned from the civilized world. But apparently manners and hygeine are now in the eye of the beholder. Why does this happen so often?
