If I want to stink, do it in my own house and don't force it on others?
I'll smell however I like, and if your nose is offended, YOU leave. How's that? Personal space is less than a foot in every direction, you don't
want me in there, that's fine. But the sidewalk, the hallway, the street, the bar, that's common area, it's both of ours. I suffer because some
men and women wear enough cologne/perfume to kill a rhino! I don't tell them to go home and smell however they like! I deal with it, and I'm sure
you can too, it just takes a little bit of effort.
Goddamn anti-smoking Nazis want to tell people how to SMELL?! I have two fingers that can respond to that demand, but one of them is helping hold my
You're entitled to go around pulling guns on people, but don't expect the compliant response every time.
Somebody might call your bluff one day
and put the cigarette out in your eyeball. And that would suck for everyone involved.
Why not just switch tables? Or for that matter, don't frequent establishments that allow smoking, problem solved.
When it comes to places of business..this is how I see it. If you open a business, you should have the right to make it non-smoking. You should have
the right to make it mixed, smoking and non. You should have the right to make it smoking ONLY. It's your business, run it as you see fit. If
people don't do business with you because they disagree with your choice, that's your loss. If people frequent your establishment more because of
your decision, good on ya'!
I'm sick of being treated like a second class citizen because I smoke cigarettes. I do not agree to give up my rights just because someone else
doesn't think I deserve them. You as an individual are free to think us ridiculous for our behavior, that's what freedom is all about.
That being said, it's not just about rights, it's about responsibility. I'm a responsible smoker, and I encourage others to be. I don't smoke
around kids, or the elderly, or people with asthma and what not. When I'm sitting next to a stranger on a park bench or on the train platform, I ask
"Do you mind if I smoke?" before I light up. Smokers need to be considerate, but they don't need to be subservient.
All y'all nonsmokers are going to be # out of luck when the bombs drop or the volcanoes blow, or the meteorite strikes. We have immunity, we have
protection, we're wearing lung condoms.
All you little pink lungs will be gasping and choking and crawling around on the ground like the zombies in 28 days later, while we go to the store to
Sorry..smoking makes me a little aggro...
