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!

This used to happen almost daily when I used to ride the bus. People would even do it after my DD was born. So rude!

 Perhaps he was simply an asshole.  This guy was obviously a shithead, he likely wouldn't give up his seat for you, help an old lady across the street and kicks puppies. NONE of which has to do with being a smoker.  I was a smoker once and I would not have been smoking there, if for some reason I did not know that and it was pointed out to me I would have apologized and put it out or left.  I get some tired of people assuming that anyone who smokes is a jerk, it was frigging HARD to quit. I don't regret it but I understand why people still do it.

Ditto.  Yes, I smoke, but I can't beleive the a**holes who will smoke anywhere--especially those who smoke around a woman who is obviously pregnant.  I'd be livid!

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
