The Cafe The Cafe

Smoking?, at your kids soccer practice, REALLY?

Ya know it's bad enough that 90% of the kids around who should be in carseats, aren't. It's bad enough that so many parents around here smoke in the car with their kids but can they at least not smoke during soccer practice around my child and the other children? It's your life, smoke 20 packs a day if you want but don't make me and my kids smoke too. People can be so frigin rude and stupid. You can't wait a frigin hour to have a cigarette?

This.


Quoting EireLass:

Isn't soccer practice outside? Get over it. Do you not allow your kids to walk on the sidewalk next to streets because of toxic fumes from cars going by?

I totally agree with you, and I smoke!  Either go far, far away from the kids and spectators or wait till later--that's what I do in similar situations.  I swear that people (non-smokers, too) can be so inconsiderate sometimes.

You are absolutely right about all people. I'm sure I've been inconsiderate before, not intentionally but I'm not perfect. People who smoke should know better. It's common sense I think.

If they were smoking right up next to all the kids that is bad they could have walked away smoked and come back

Gross. Luckily all of our parks and schools with fields ban smoking.

I smoke and I move away from people when in a crowd, especially families and old people. I haven't smoked in the car since my first was born. I think your post was a little rude, not all smokers smoke around their kids. The parents you're referring to might be smoking at soccer practice because that's when they get the opportunity to. I smoke outside the park because that's when I have the time to.

I am a smoker myself and I find stuff like this rude. If I want I smoke, I walk out to the parking lot so I don't bother anyone.

As someone you DOES NOT smoke I'm tired of hearing all the bitching about it. If it bothers you that much then write your congressman and start a patition to make it illegal.
