ok are you ready. ok ho hum we can't smoke inside and ok ho hum in alot of cities we can't smoke near door that lead to inside (the horror, horror) but now in Cowtown we have a law that you can't butt out on the ground, sooo (please refrain from imbibing refreshing beverages from this point onword cuz it's most probable that you will snort them all over your puter) we now get fined for that so, (you know what's coming) peoples are throwing their butts in garbage cans and TA DA go figure that suddenly on the news 'Suspected Arsonist in the Core'
That's hilarious! Have they figured out the connection? Aren't they stupid with their laws? We might have that law too, but I smoke non-filters and I smoke them way down to about half an inch, so I just step on them and they practically disappear.
I've mentioned this before, somewhere in this cubit, I'm sure, but the law in my town is that smokers can't stand still while they smoke. They have to keep walking, so I just slowly turn in a circle but stay in the same place.
Zuzu that's what's why it's so funny (I CAN"T STAND IT). They still haven't figured it out since it came in effect Janury 1/11. Good to know about CA laws zuzu. I will remember to keep meandering about while I start a fire in the garbage can
It's not surprising, Dahlia. They still haven't figured out that airplane rage is related to the non-smoking laws on airplanes. Nobody ever went nuts on a plane back in the days when smoking was allowed. Instead of restraining those people, they should just give them a stick of Nicorette gum.
Do smokers still fly? No smoking in the airport... and you need to be there several hours early for checking in through security...then the flights are almost always late...get on board...still no smoking...sit on tarmac for hours...still no smoking...finally take off...no smoking...circle for an eternity...still no smoking...finally land....no smoking... sit on tarmac waiting to get off the plane...no smoking...back in terminal...no smoking...get through baggage claims...no smoking...file missing baggage claim...no smoking...walk through terminal...no smoking...finally get outside...no smoking ...cross to taxi stand or car rental...no smoking...in the rental car or taxi...no smoking...get to hotel...no smoking rooms available...arrive at friend or family members home...Hugs...they are so happy to see you...but they quit smoking last month and theirs is now a no smoking household...you really should quit too...they say in a self righteous tone...but if you must... please walk down the block past the shopping center and 8 blocks north...then stand in the middle of the road so you are far enough away from all doors...Oh, and would you mind stopping at the truck stop and showering and changing clothes before you return...the odor of smoke on your person is really strong...but gee...it is so good to see you!
I despise friends and family members who suddenly decide their homes are non-smoking zones without warning you in advance. That happened to me a few years ago when I visited a former friend (never again!) in Florida. No smoking at the airport, whisked into a waiting limo with no smoking, and arrived at her home to learn it was a no-smoking zone. And she smokes! Stupid bitch! There I was, stuck for a week, going outside to smoke instead of sitting back and enjoying my cigarettes inside. If I had known, I certainly wouldn't have made the trip.
The only saving grace on that trip was the Atlanta airport, where I had to change planes. Do you know that it has a smoking lounge? It was like dying and going to heaven. I sat in there until the last minute before boarding.
