Award Close-ups and Drink Conventions

It’s awkward when talking to a spitter -- one of those guys or girls who accidentally spit all the time when they talk. You have to stand close and lean in to hear them at the bar, and you feel little flecks of it hitting you in the face. Sometimes when they really get going, you can even see a tiny bit fly out of their mouth and land right in your drink. If you’re overly polite, you have to wait until they finish their conversation to wipe the spit off your face. It’s even worse when the roles are reversed and you notice a tiny bit of spit has escaped your mouth during conversation only to fly into your friend’s beer. What’s the right thing to do in this situation? I recommend pretending it never happened.
