Do you think its rude?

There are worker people out in our backyard doing pavement that our landlord had them do. all our windows are open because its been nice all week out. im pregnant. and what can i smell creeping through my window? the nasty scent of CIGARETTES... god i want to THROW UP... theyre on our property and they are working RIGHT out bedroom window and there is no possible way they cant see it is open. im also playing music so i know they can hear it bc the window is open.

would you be mad to have this nasty disgusting smell being creeped through your windows from them? especially BEING PREGNANT!?!

  • they can't read your mind. Go tell them no cigarettes! Your pregnant. Open your mouth if you want them to stop. You can't send them mental waves of annoyance and expect them to stop. I would only be mad if they refused.

  • It would annoy me, yes. Your options are to either close your windows until they are gone, or go outside with a big friendly smile and ask them to please not smoke on your property since you are pregnant and the smoke is getting into your house. No sense in getting upset about it, since they aren't trying to purposely bother or harm you.

  • I would be upset to. But thats how it goes, Prob. Not much you could do about it but shut your windows. They are outside.

  • Close your window, walk outside, and ask them nicely if they would please not smoke so close to your house because you are pregnant.

    You can't expect them to read your mind.

  • I am a smoker, but I do agree that THAT Is rude. I would say something. It is YOUR home and YOU have a right to say something. As dumb as it sounds, they may not realize it is floating in your window.

  • give them a place where they can smoke. like tell them that you dont want them smoking in your yard and leaving the butts everywhere. so ask them to go to a specific place to do it.

  • even if i wasnt pregnant i think its really rude. and if we were that doesnt mean they can stand by your window and smoke a cigarette.

  • your right so tell them where they can.

  • i used to smoke too. and i think thats really rude. one i wouldnt be hanging out smoking while working.. 2 if they can see that your windows are open they KNOW the smoke is getting in there. even if you werent pregnant, its still rude to get that smell inside of someones house. if they know your window is open thats just as bad as standing in your house smoking a cigarette.
