I’m ranting again. I have to…it’s in me. I’ve ignored doing this post for a while now just because I don’t want to offend anybody but I have to get this off my chest. The voices in my head (and my husband too) that hear me complaining about it say it’s time. :)
I CAN’T STAND IT WHEN PEOPLE SMOKE OUTSIDE OF A PUBLIC PLACE!
In NS all public places are smoke free. They are supposed to be…it’s a law!
So why are people still smoking outside at public places?
Don’t get me wrong….I don’t hate smokers. Not at all! I just can’t stand when somebody is smoking right beside a shopping place entrance and my child and I have to walk through the stench of a cigarette to get to the door.
Do you know what gets me even more upset?
WHEN PEOPLE SMOKE OUTSIDE A PUBLIC PLACE RIGHT BESIDE A NON SMOKING SIGN!
People do this…and nobody stops them! Why is nobody stopping them? Where are the no smoking on public premises police?
Can they not see the sign? All they have to do is turn their head and wipe away the smoke fumes and there’s the sign! It’s huge. The only way you could get out of this one is if you were blind.
Oh I rant and rave inside my head, mutter under my breath (cause apparently I still must show the love of God in a situation like this) and fume until I’m inside the door.
Don’t do it! Don’t smoke in public places! For the love of everything people…just stop!
Go smoke inside your car.
If you have children please don’t smoke inside the car.
Smoking is your habit…please don’t make other people enjoy it when they don’t want to.
You have a choice to keep others healthy around you even if you aren’t going to be healthy yourself.
So….please please please be responsible.
Walk the distance to the designated smoking area or just wait until you are away from people.
A pastor I know has a saying; “Don’t be stupid!”
This would apply here.
