Just for a bit of levity ~
I mis-read your thread title and thought it said "Smoking and Pumpkin Gas".
You can imagine where my mind went.....
Smoking gives you gas which smells like Pumpkin?
Or is it a roasted Pumpkin which is giving off gas?
Well then I proceeded to read and saw that I was WAY off LOL
I think you did the RIGHT THING anyway! I detest snitches and busy bodies - EXCEPT - when it comes to safety!
I am an industrial consultant and have studied enviro sci - and yeah - we gotta keep SAFE!
One of my Professors used to tell people fishing in certain spots - CATCH AND RELEASE! CATCH AND RELEASE! She would run right up to the people and
tell them to NOT eat the fish because it would make them sick. She had no qualms about doing this - and if it is to help someone - no one should feel
bad. It is positively motivated and a person might not know.
Snitches no one likes are the types who bitch over crap that is NO problem and/ or has nothing to do with you.
Calls the cops on you for burning candles and incense claiming you are worshipping Satan or some crap like that
I think you did the RIGHT thing! and I'll bet too that when the smoking woman gets over her anger - she WILL stop and think next time. It is common
sense that you do not smoke around combustibles - she will remember this I am sure.
Once when I was young I threw a fast food wrapper out a car window. Some other driver saw me do it and RAGED at me! It made me angry that the guy was
raging at me - but then later - I realized - he was RIGHT.
We should not pitch garbage out of a car - he was right - and I felt ashamed - once I got over my anger at being called out in an angry fashion.
And I have NEVER tossed out ANYTHING improperly since then! If I have even a straw wrapper - I put it in my bag to put in THE PROPER GARBAGE
You did the right thing, and hopefully the woman in question will take heed of your advice. I think she will
