how absolutely rude!! smokers

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Well im about 37 weeks pregnant and im HUGE with this baby. The problem is im also very short, so i can no longer drive my car without my stomach being on the steering wheel. I dont feel safe or comfy like that so i try not to drive unless absolutely necessary. Im in the bus depot coming back from the drs, just waiting on line for the bus. Now the depot is upstairs and tech outside as itlooks like a garage but there are no smoking signs everywhere. The man next to me in line lights up a cigarette and is puffing away. The smoke is blowing in my face and im coughing and swatting at the smoke trying to fan it away. I look over and say, "excuse me sir. This is a no smoking area and im pregnant. Do you mind moving off the line or out of the depot please?" The man cussed me out and told me that he didnt give a shit if there was a no smoking sign there..that the depot is above ground and he'll smoke if he wants. I just didn't have it in me to argue. So i got off the line and found a transit employee that asked him to leave or put it out or else he would get a transit officer to issue a ticket. He gave me such a horrible look..but HELLO it says NO SMOKING IN BUS TERMINAL!

 had nothing to do with you being prego it is illigal there that is that you pointed out this and he didnt care. this is why I dislike 90% of smokers they only care about themselves and their addicaton the end. I read in my paper twice of ppl tossing butts out windows (littering wrong cant do it) and causeing car fires a lady was caught onfire her body because of a smoker. I also Witnessed two fires from ppl tossing at bushes our local mall I witnessed it I am the one who called 911 as smoker drove away... then at a gas station ya toss your lit fire garbadge out the window at a place full of gas luckly only the bushes were again burned I and two other witnesses got the plate # turned in though.   You did the right thing you told him he didnt listen you reported him now maybe just maybe someone else wont have to deal with him and he wont do it again.. but I doubt it...

I'm a smoker but even I detest rude smokers.

I'm happy the man that worked for transit stepped up and said something.

Me too. Smokers like that give us all a bad name.

Quoting Kennadismom:

As a smoker I hate to see this stuff. Not everyone chooses to smoke and if it clearly says Mon smoking and you're pregnant that should have been respected I would have flipped

Okay I smoke and i would never be that rude!!! if see a "no smoking"sign I don't light up at all. I would never smoke in front of a pregnant woman. that is just wrong!!! and i would never do it infront of a child.

Exactly, its not like we were just outside and he was standing next to me. In that case i wouldnt say anything i would just hold my breath and move away from him. We were in a no smoking area and i was waiting for the bus. I shouldnt have had to get off the line because he was breaking the law.
