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!

Only place I met unhappy smokers was in ohio. I don't remember how far from the door you were supposed to be, but I saw a chick get a ticket in the parking lot of being too close to the entrance. Cause you know...smoking in public is the biggest crime our cops have to deal with.

Quoting Stephd710:

Yeah we are a bit behind in the times.  Of course, the smokers arent happy.  They can only smoke in designated areas outside. 

Quoting ColleenF30:

Been like that in other states for awhile now.

Cause if they don't control our health and protect us who will?

Quoting Stephd710:

My town just became a non-smoking town.  I LOVE it!!!  I went out to the bar last weekend and didnt come home smelling like a nasty ashtray!! We dont have to smell it in restaurants anymore either.  Smoking sections no longer exist!

Many people are so stupid they need these laws. That's life.

Quoting ColleenF30:

Now exactly which part is being a drama queen? Some states they have banned smoking with children in cars...inside the car that is...the next logical step is inside the home. I am only stating what is logical to our government. It is coming. They more control you hand off the less you will be allowed to have. It has been proven over history. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Quoting UgtaBkdnMe:

No one is talking about what goes on in anyones home. Just public areas, stop being such a drama queen.

Quoting ColleenF30:

And where do you get the ASSumption I am smoking around others? Lets have in home child moniters too so that we can make sure there is no abuse. The American people can't handle themselves.

I was raised to move away from things that bother me instead of bitching about it.

Quoting UgtaBkdnMe:

Apparently not if you're smoking around others.

Quoting ColleenF30:

Yeah because more Government control is just what we need. Lets invite them in to control what goes on in our homes as well! I for one am not intelligent enough to decide for myself what is harmful and what is safe. Sure!!!

Quoting UgtaBkdnMe:

I wish they would just ban it all together like crack lol

LOL. Damn.

Im 31 thank you..and excuse me just so happened to be pregnant ?? Yes i did tattle...gladly! Had the transit officer been there i wouldve made sure the guy got a ticket..why? Because i asked nicely amd he cussed me out. You know what..i will report you..just because you want to call me a liar and try to start drama. I think personal attacks violates terms of service.. so im watch this tattle.

LOL...neeneeneer? Your maturity is showing. How old are you? I would have only cussed you out for tattling like a bratty 4 year old. I also find this story a little suspicious...I have been in a lot of places, before and after it wasn't ok to smoke inside, and no one, not even drunks in a bar, ever blew smoke directly in my face. You just happened to be pregnant to? LOL...sounds like BS to me..but please don't tell on me for sayin so:)



Quoting Anonymous:

Lmao!!!! Awww how cute. Well no one told him to smoke in a no smoking area where it says, "subject to fine by transit police". So neeneeneer! Oh and fyi i smoked up until 6 yrs ago..so maybe you can read myreply when i said i wouldnt have cared if it wasnt in the bus depot with almost every exhale in my face. So no i dont need your consideration but i bet you dont want a ticket just as much he didnt want one. Thats why he put it out and all he could do was look at me cause he was in the wrong.








Quoting Anonymous:

Oh for fucks sake. . No one made you get pregnant, and you get no special consideration from me about my smoking just because you are pregnant. Hold your breath or move away from the smoke. Inhaling one breath of secondhand smoke, while it may be unpleasant, isn't gonna kill you cupcake. I would have cussed you out to.

LOL whatever honey. The best part is that *gasp* I smoke, and I still feel like the SMOKER should be the one to be respectful and walk away from those that don't want second hand smoke in their face.

Quoting ColleenF30:

Yeah I know...no one should ever compromise with anyone. We wonder why this Country is in the shape it is in. Fucking entitlement age." I don't have to do anything because you sinners should have to bow to me". reminds be of the bitch my Father used to work with when she would flop down on her ass and say "I don't have to work as hard as you boys".

Heaven forbid someone not bitch and move aside...saves too many problems.

Quoting briansmommy2010:

Why should the one choosing NOT to inhale harmful substances into their lungs have to walk away?

My friend called the cops on the hair salon that is in the suite next to hers in an office building.  All the businesses leave their doors open and she said the girls in there never stopped smoking inside and the whole building stunk and the smoke was coming in her office.  So she called the cops and the salon got a warning.  When she called, she apologized to the police dept and they told her that she did the right thing because alot of people were taking it as a joke.  Who wants to get their hair done in a smoky little shop anyway?

as the tears stream down my face ....I scream....NO NO NO PLEEEEEEEEASE don't report me for having an opinion that differs from yours.......still crying and screaming.....NO, please don't get me in trouble for assuming that like most everyone on here, you are full of shit.....This is a public forum. If your feelings get hurt that easily, maybe you should find a different hobby. You should start smoking again. It will calm your nerves:)

This except I don't smoke anymore. I HATE when people just act like jerks....

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
