No Smoking

I do not know what your views on smoking are, nor do I really care, but I noticed a smoker today blatantly disobey the No Smoking signs on the building at which I work. I was not sure whether she was completely ignorant of the signs or if she was just “sticking it to the man” by smoking in a non-smoking area. After she finished inhaling her tobacco ridden air she flicked her cigarette into the planter directly below the aforementioned sign. If you ask me she did this with blatant disregard for the rules but I wonder if her action was an act of protest and frustration towards a world that is increasingly infringing on her right to smoke. It has to be tough for smokers out there, and while I may not smoke myself, I cannot help but feeling a little sorry for them. You may feel otherwise, but should we really be limiting someone’s right to shorten their lifespan? There are countless other life threatening actions that we do allow; why are we being so tough on smokers?

  1. I will defend to the death (well, probably not to the death, but.. you know) a smoker’s right to shorten his life span by smoking.I just want him to keep his/her smoke out of my air.Oh, and throw your butts in the garbage, not on the sidewalk. Sheesh.
