Bizarre encounters with the general public are just one of the many perks that come with being a TV news reporter.
Just ask the journalist featured in a recent YouTube video in which he's interrupted by a woman blatantly spitting on camera.
In between bouts of coughing up phlegm and asking for directions, she comes between the crew and the journalist in the midst of filming a show for Chicago's WCIU local news station.
The best part of the video -- besides the spitting -- has to be the reporter's reaction.
