Smokers: Would You Ever Just Sit Down Next To Someone And Light Up?

It seems like smokers in my area just don't give a flip or something.

I don't have a car and take public transit sometimes. More than once I have been at a bus stop and someone just lit up. Now if we were standing outside that might be a little different but our bus stops also have little shelters you can wait in and they light up in there next to me and my son. You can either wait outside or inside the shelter and people have more than one time lit up inside the shelter.

It's absolutely disgusting and I always tell my son we are moving to avoid the smoke.

Yesterday I was at the park with my son, sitting at the picnic table watching him play. Now I don't mind sharing the picnic table with strangers but one seriously sat down next to me and lit up.

I moved of course. I don't like being around cigarette smoke and I don't allow it in my home or around my child.

Would you ever just sit down next to someone you didn't know who was not smoking and light up?

I get people smoking at the bus stop so often. It makes me so freaking angry to have to stand outside the shelter with my 6 year old asthmatic in the rain so miss suzie can have her half a smoke before getting on the bus...  -.-

Shew glad to have gotten that out!!!

I don't smoke anymore, but when I did, I was very considerate of those around me.

Nope! I don't smoke in public places. I am the one who has chosen to smoke. It is not fair to make others suffer because of my Stupid decision to smoke.

No. I stand 10-15 feet away and down wind. Even if they are smoking I give at least 5 feet separation so they aren't in my smoke and I'm not in theirs. I don't smoke in enclosed spaces ever.

No. I don't even smoke my vapor cigarette in close proximity of others. I think it's rude.

No, I quit nearly a year ago but I never lit up in public. Not only is it illegal in my city, it's impolite.

I'd kick them out or off.  Surely it's illegal to smoke in those shelters.

No. I don't like to smoke around people. It makes me feel so rude. I don't even like passing people on the sidewalk when I'm smoking.

Nope. I rarely smoke in public, but if I do I go to the designated areas or pretty far from others.
