  • My wife used to work at a small store.

    Customers, smoking, would walk up to the door, take that last huge drag off their cigarette, throw the butt in the ashtray by the door, then walk in and exhale in her direction, a huge cloud of fetid smoke.

    So enjoyable, that lovely second hand smoke.
  • I do that all the time myself. If I see someone on the sidewalk smoking, I get a good breath at least 10 feet in advance. If they're walking the same direction as me and I'm catching up, I'll often slow down.

    I really think that nobody should ever smoke in public, except in some sort of designated smoking location. It's just fucking rude to inflict your toxins on someone else.

    I have mixed feelings about legislating this sort of thing. On one hand, I love the restaurant/bar smoking ban here in Minneapolis
  • You know what’s worse? I live close to a stadium, and there’s a convention taking place right now. The air is wafting this way, so my entire neighbourhood faintly smells of cigarette smoke right now.

    The biggest irony of them all is it’s a Christian convention [].


    On my big euro backpacking holiday I was heading down through Spain to Morocco to go climb a mountain, but in the end I decided to turn around and go the other way, because the number of people smoking just got so insanely high.

    And with outright bans on smoking even in pubs here in AU, maybe I can return to drinking socially again soon :)
