Spit or swallow?

When brushing your teeth, do you spit in the sink, spit in the toilet, swallow it (ewwww) or other?

The reason I ask is that since I was little I spit in the sink, making sure to rinse the sink out when I was done. My wife thinks this is disgusting, and she insists that the kids spit in the toilet. If she catches me spitting in the sink, she insists that I clean it. Am I wrong? Is she insane? WHAT SHOULD I DO????

Damn, once again I posted before the post to which I responded. If this time travel stuff extends beyond the forum, maybe I can go back and wake myself up this morning. That would really freak me out.

For as long as I've been brushing my teeth, I've been spitting into the sink. I've never known anybody who spit into the toilet and I'm sure that I know people who swallow.

I wanted to vote the funny option, but I voted the truth.

I spit in the sink, of course. You need to tell your wife that the stuff you wash off your hands is grosser than the stuff that comes out of your mouth after brushing. Unless she's preparing food in your bathroom sink, I think she needs to relax a bit.

That's exactly what I tell her. "You wash your hands in the sink after taking a shit, how is that any better?"

Yeah, your wife's a psycho.
I suppose peeing in the sink is out of the question, too.

I've never heard of anything but the sink... Spitting in the toilet is gross! What does she do in the sink that it has to be perfectly clean for, wash vegetables in the bathroom?

Of course. She should know where that goes by now.

Well. I guess I should show this thread to my wife. "Hey honey, I posted a one-sided version of our `spit in the sink` controversy, and a bunch of faceless internet strangers think you're insane." That oughtta work.

The only time I spit in the toilet is when I'm puking. Other times, who needs the possibility of 'backsplash' in your face? Ick.

I also leave the water turned off while I'm brushing my teeth. I had a European friend who scolded me once for letting it run. She was right ... it's very wasteful.

You have to be subtle though. Just print it out and stick it on the fridge.
