smokers have rights too you know

Posted by   + Show Post
I smoke, maybe a pack a day. So yes, my clothes may reek of smoke. I was sitting next to some bitch and her kid and she actually asked me to move because she could smell the smoke and her kid had asthma!

I did move, but really, the nerve of her.

I am a smoker and I guess I am nice because I would have apologized and moved. Would moving 20 feet harm your health? Probably not but your smoke can harm the health of her child.

I agree. I thought maybe they were on a bus or something and it would be easier for OP to move than for mama to find two open seats. OP says there were in an uncrowded laundry mat, so I agree mama should have moved her and her kid elsewhere. 

Quoting sfkdny:

then SHE should have moved.  people are allowed to smoke. 


Quoting Jessica_Esqueda:

Ive smoked before. My child has asthma. Even as a past smoker, a child with asthma cannot be sitting near a smoker. She wasnt doing anything to offend you, she was trying to keep her child healthy.

Not true. Smoke can linger on your clothing and smells can irritate respiratory conditions. Nurses are encouraged to not use perfumes and sprays because of it.

Quoting Anonymous:

Smoke itself can irritate asthma, the smell of smoke can not.

Quoting PEEK05:

Who cares? You smell like shit. Would you want to sit next to someone who smelled like shit?

ETA: That being said, I would have just moved myself and my kid.

Wow. 90% of you women in this thread are cunts. I can bet NONE of you would say anything to a smoker irl.

I guess I'm part of that 10% because I have told smoker to cut that shit off or go away. They always do:)

I'm a smoker and my 5 year old has asthma, never once has my smoking triggered an attack.
With that being said, a pack a day, really? I only smoke 3-6 a day, a pack is a lot!

It does. I hate walking into a store and there's nine people outside smoking. I hate sitting in my children's pedi office and it reeks of an ashtray because of smokers. I hate that my mother/mother in law smoke and throw tantrums because I won't let them hold my newborn. I are both sides, but I still think its a gross habit.


Quoting kandie63:

We're in a public place. So yea, that doesn't make any sense.




Quoting Ninjascreenname:

You as one person may have "rights" but my entire family of five does too and we don't want to breathe in your smoke or smell you.
