She caught me in a bad day...

So I'm not sure if I reacted like this because I'm dealing with another long bout of insomnia or I'm just in a ba mood. The Dh and I both smoke, and are in the process of trying to quit, we don't smoke around our children, family or friends, an it's always done outside.

So this morning I went to te store to buy a new pack, and when I got to the counter and asked for the them cashier Layed them on the counter and gave me a dirty look and said that will kill you , you know. Well I was shocked for a second that she had said anything , an then I got mad, I'm feed up with people and there judgmental BS, so I looked at her and said" thank you so much for that public service announcement , with out it I may have gone on thinking that smoking was good for me and made me look younger and skinner! Then I went on to tell her that I was a home owning , tax paying citizen of this country an that my husband has done five tours of combat duty to procect my rights as an American, that allows me the freedom to tell you I go fuck yourself, I left the money on the counter and left with my purchase.

I'm sure I'm going to get the bashing comments , but I can tell you I'm normall the type of person that never says anything to rude , judgmental people and today I just finally snapped. Ido feel bad about the gofuck yourself part though.

Cut yourself some slack; we all have bad days - smokers and non-smokers.

Eh. We all have those days. It really wasn't her business to say that to you. Maybe next time she'll keep her opinions to herself

Eh it happens.

That was no judgement though on her part, they really are extremely bad and can take years off your life.

But it's your life so it isn't her business, or any one's but yours! :)

Since you mentioned you're both trying to quit, have you looked into ecigs?? Might help you out...

I was a check out person.  I figured people knew about cigs.  I'm really proud of not saying anything to the mothersof little children who accomplished their weekly shopping without buying milk or vegetables.  "Frozen pizzas, frozen .50 burritos  and gallons of red punch?  Really!?!"

We have just rationing we only smoke a certain amount each day and take one away from that everyday. It's how we quit last time. And we did good, then he went to Afghanistan and it was really stressful over there and when he came home he got me back into again but we have both decided its time to quit, I want to quit because I know it's not healthy, he only wants to quit because its expensive

Yeah, we eat healthy that's our only bad habit and like I said we are quitting. I know it's hard not to judge people it's human nature everyone does it at some point she just hit me on a bad day normal I would have agreed with her, because it's true. But I wasn't in the mood today.

Today's a day like that for me too. For me, It all came out while on the phone with my mother because she started bad mouthing my husband and I had just had enough of everything today. We all have days like that.

I'm with you. I hate when I'm in the casino smoking playing my machine and a person will sit down and say, "Would please blow your smoke that way..." I look at them and blow smoke towards them and talk at the same time and say, "You seen me smoking, yet you chose to sit next to me, and your drinking beer and I just cant stand the smell of alcohol..makes me nauseated...please go drink it over there." That usally shuts them up. Cashiers aren't suppose to say that to you..I would of went to the supervisor and got a free pack of smokes.!!!
