Let me start by saying that I am not a smoker.
I do not agree with banning smoking in public places either.
It's your body, cigs are legal ( to those of us over the age of 18 ) so if you want'em, get'em and smoke'em.
My Rant is...
Why are smokers allowed to take so many damn breaks at work !
The people that I work with go outside to smoke every hour on the hour, sometimes sooner !
I see some of them get out of thier cars in the mornings puffing away and then 50 minutes or so into work, there they go again !
We have one guy, who gets here at 7:30, smokes at 8am, again about every 30-45 minutes.
this is crazy!!
I don't get to take a break every hour, if I do, then I'm known as slacking off or wasting time... but oh... if a smoker wants to go outside and
"burn one", then by all means have at it.
yes, we have complained, but nothing gets done about it.
I'm going to bring in sleeping pills and tell the bosses that I'm addicted to those and that I must have a 10 minute nap 4-5 times a day.
