  • I have no idea. I blame the government for the backlash against smokers. The facts indicate it's bad for people to smoke, or others to be exposed to second hand smoke. Yet the government slaps on warning labels and continues to reap the financial benefits through taxation. Come on people give smokers a break!
  • I am rude to no one. They are addicted and enslaved to a filthy, expensive and harmful habit. I pity smokers.
  • It was a backlash for all the years they have been socially unacceptable in making non-smokers breath their pollution.
  • You are SO RIGHT. I have no idea why but if someone asks me to put out my cigarette, I will BUT if they start shaking their hands to get the smoke away from them & act rude, I make sure that I blow smoke right in their face
  • Great question. Suddenly, everyone hates smokers. They can't to anything right. Where I work, in July of 2005 our facility went smoke free. No smoking on company grounds, even when in your own vehicle. Then they started to charge smokers $6.00 more a week for health insurance. I say one or the other. They are being punished twice. Plus, all the extra taxes on a pack of butts. They are over $5.00 a pack here in the state of Maine. For the troll. ***I don't know that smokers are the only ones society is rude to though. I think rudeness is just becoming more socially acceptable. Crazy!! I am a former smoker by the way.
  • Bercause all the anti-smoking Nazis can now get away with it. I'm a non smoker by the way.
  • We are the new lepers.
  • I am a smoker...and a polite smoker at that. However, people think they have the right to look down at smokers like we are a piece of crap. I would love to know all the dirty habits each and everyone one of them have. They are no better then we are. I will not take insults from people who do not smoke. I don't intrude on anyones life with my smoking...and I call that respect...I deserve respect also.
  • i am not aware of it being socially acceptable to be rude to smokers, however i do know that it is equally rude or worse for a smoker to think that it is fine to light up in public. if this person wants to kill himself by having this disgusting habit then so be it, but what makes this moron think i have to put up with his/her hideous habit? go home and light up, but do not invade my space. i become physically sick at a whif of these subtances. i am amazed at the lack of common sense that has failed to exist. in this day and age when there is so much scientific proof of how harmful smoking is to the smoker and nonsmoker, why would someone ask such a question? whether the government cares about this or not, the bottom line is do not cause harm to your fellow human being with this dependancy you cannot or will not control, simply because you insist in having it your way.
  • Because it's not socially acceptable for them to make me cough and deal with the shit their putting into my air. I had to deal with a smoker for a parent for 16 years, I know how rude and inconsiderate they are. Besides that, do you have any idea how much that shit stinks? After leaving my parents home for 4 months and going back to visit once, I literally got sick from the scene of smoke in the air. It is disgusting.
  • I have always tried to be considerate of non-smokers. I did not smoke in restaurants or other public places long before it was banned. I agree..cigarette smoke is harmful and it stinks, but if a smoker is standing outside indulging his/her habit..leave them alone. Concentrate more on the person who is climbing in his/her car drunk or drinking then trying to drive. I cannot see the logic of the acceptance of bars on every corner serving people who they KNOW are going to drive afterwards. Even with all the people killed and maimed by drunk drivers, alcohol is still allowed to be advertised on TV...and as a GOOD and desirable thing.
  • I'm a ex smoker and would never be rude to someone unless they deserved it.
  • I have heard they are going to ban you from smoking in your own home & car. Where will that leave us to smoke. Be like little kids & hide it by smoking in the bathroom or in secret hidding spots. This is just like some people want to segregate HIV/AID patients to there own island. whats next so much for our rights/liberties. If we want a slow painful death then so be it.
  • Because smokers are rude to me. They crap up the air I breathe and glare when I start coughing..I cough because my lungs are sensitive to smog/smoke/air filled with crap because I had double pneumonia a very long time ago and having lungs that are sensitive to crap is part of the residual effect. Why does their "right" to inhale crap trump my right to breathe clean air?
  • No its not acceptable,i dont smoke but im not rude to smokers live and let live.
  • I am an ex smoker as well and I'm not rude to anyone who does smoke. I was very cautious of where I smoked and if it bothered anyone before I lit up. I show respect, I'd like it in return. That's how I roll ;)
  • Oh, I think it is about even both ways. I think the "cancer" part for 2nd-handers really got people wound up, and then the moving smokers out of the office and to the doorways (where everyone had to walk thru the butts and smoke to get in), got everyone even more fired up. But, it is not right to treat a smoker any worse than you would treat someone who drives a car, sprays hairspray on their head, or burns toxic junk in your city! I smoke my cigars outside, (I don't like that musty-smell in the house, either), and that's only a couple a week. But, I think autos probably do more damage to our lungs. And, cell phones may be eating up our brains ... if it ain't one thing, it's another.
  • because they STEAL you oxygen that's why !!!!!!!
  • Good question. I think that it has become acceptable on the grounds that people really belive that second hand smoke is not only offensive but harmfull to them. Also, in America smokers are being pushed out of resturants and bars and onto the streets where people and thier children have to see the nasty habit and its result in the gutter, beacuse there will be butts. Bans are contraversial, and create media attention making smokers a minority and one that is easy to hate. The people who advocate the bans of course make second hand smoke out to be more harmfull than it is. Most of all, nobody wants to stand up for smokers, at least not if they want to maintain a decent reputation.
  • I don't know, but it's obnoxious. I always make sure to ask if anyone will be bothered by my smoke, and I always smoke outside, never next to an open window, and I always do my best to hide the cigarette if children walk by while I'm smoking because I don't feel right about smoking in front of them, so I feel like I'm doing things right, but people seem to feel okay about staring, even from the other side of a window where there's no chance of the smoke reaching their noses, or making comments when walking by.
  • I didn't think it was socially acceptable to be rude to anyone. Maybe I'm wrong.
  • that is a rumour.
  • since I found out you are killing me
  • it's not. its a sick habit and it hurts them, but it's not acceptable to ever be rude. [makes a person undignified to be rude]
  • Good question. Last I checked it was still legal. Right?
  • well for me i am alergic to the slightest bit of it (smoke) so i have to be.
  • as long as a smoker is not rude to me i have no reason to be rude to them
  • i will answer this with a question... Why has it become socially acceptable to smoke?
  • well, there's been a sudden wave of information over the past few decades about how horrible it actually is for a smoker's health, the health of those around them, the air, etc. non-smokers think it's despicable, and their first reaction is "get that poison out of my air." that said, i don't think it's right to be rude to a smoker for no good reason. smoking is an addiction, and not an easy one to kick, at that. studying to become an addictions counselor, i am well aware of the effect nicotine has on the brain, so i cut smokers a little slack. i am only ever rude to smokers if they are inconsiderate to me, which they sometimes are. my mother and stepfather were horrible that way; they did about 2.5 packs a day EACH, smoked in the house, in the car, etc. i have asthma and chronic bronchitis, and they never made the effort to accomodate me in the least. you better believe i moved out as soon as i was financially able. but yeah, i do not appreciate people who insist on smoking in my presence when i do not have the option to get away from it.
  • I think it is because we now know that smoking is very bad for a person. However, I don't think governments should be regulating it so much, and banning it in places and stuff like that. I don't smoke, but I grew up around it (both parents smoke, and still do) so I'm not bothered by it much. I'm all for letting people kill themselves if they want to, whether it be quickly or slowly...Call it a form of pro-choice.
  • Because smoking is rude in and of itself. Forcing your smell, chemicals, and litter on the street is not a very nice thing to do to the world. I have no sympathy for smokers. Anyone who smokes, especially someone who has had all the opportunities of tobacco education, is simply an idiot.
  • It is another way to make yourself feel better by putting down someone else.
  • Define your description of "rude" you talk about.
  • Because people like to discriminate and put themselves "above" other people. When you feel you are better than someone, you respect them less. The less you respect them, the more rude things you say. The reason non-smokers are above smokers in their own heads is because of campaigns like "Truth" and "Stupid" and other people who try to convince you that a smoker has something wrong with them.
  • Because for years, we non-smokers have had to stink like smoke and had to breath in the deadly 2nd hand smoke of others. We've had enough!!! Not only is it disgusting but it makes others around you have headaches. The behavior affects many other people and only people who don't give a crap about those around them would continue to do it.
  • I haven't noticed that it has become acceptable to be rude to smokers. There are some people who are just rude - to anyone smokers or non-smokers. Nobody I know is rude to a smoker nor am I because I don't believe there is ever an excuse for rudeness and I wouldn't pal around with someone who was rude.
  • I don't smoke a lot, but when I do, it is outside and never in public places. My dumb husband was the only rude one, and that was today. He only quit days ago. I was really upset about it. He was acting like I was bothering him and I didn't even have a cigarette. This better be withdrawals, and they better be short lived
  • A lot of them have been extremely rude over years by smoking in public without a thought to the health of others. So I guess for some they see it as come uppance time!
  • Personally I do not care as log as they do not smoke while I am around. If they are not going to respect my choice not to smoke by smoking close to me than I will resort to rudeness if I have to. It is my health being affected, you have to be your own advocate.
  • I would like to know this too, but I will say this, once they ban all smoking and smokers like myself have to hide away in secret rooms in our house to have a butt, who do you think they will go after next? All I can say is 2nd from smoking related deaths is obesity, let's see how people like it when they have to stand outside in the freezing cold to eat their big mac, as people walk by and look at them disgusted or they have to eat in separate sections of the restaurants, or they cannot eat on planes or in public places. You know once you let the government take away one freedom, you never get it back, and then they move on to the next, and the next epidemic in this country (America) is obesity.
  • its totally the anti smoking campaigns that make it ok. it is the way the anti smoking campaigns make smokers seem like dirty bad people...more ignorant than most people. its subliminal advertising. so everyone just accepts that its ok and smokers are evil.
  • How can it ever be socially acceptable to be rude? I do not think avoiding someone elses smoke by moving away from them, or doing whatever necessary to find unpolluted air to be rude. Making rude comments is not appropriate.
  • In the "olden" days, a smoker would ask "do you mind if I smoke" prior to lighting up, giving the person sharing the air the option of saying"yes, I do mind". These days smokers smoke wherever they are allowed to...I can't remember the last time one of them asked first. So, rudeness begets rudeness, I guess. :)
  • because some non smokers are assholes and think the world owes them something. here's my opinion if you want fresh air take your ass outside, when we smoke inside at least we are containing our poison in the building. i dont hear you bitching about smelling farts in bathrooms, hey theres a new one fart free restrooms.....
  • It's all psychological. People affiliate smoking and smokers with ugly stupid people because of the commercials. It's all bullcrap. I'm not a smoker but even I think that you shouldn't be prejudice against someone because of something they do that really isn't that abnormal at all. +3
  • I've noticed that too. It's just because people feel empowered now because of all the new smoking ban laws. I think it's socially unacceptable to be rude to anyone.
  • I LOVE the comment about the drunk...this is soo true...at least a smoker (smoking outside) is only harming themselves....And don't even try to come back with 2nd hand smoke outside...the exhaust from the cars driving by you is far more deadly than someone smoking outside!!! And don't even get me started on all the chemicals and crap in the food we eat!! Btw, I think smoking is one of the single worst things a person can do, but as long as they are only harming themselves....C'mon!! Reckless behavior is reckless behavior...as long as no one else is involved, who are we to judge!!!
  • Schools teach kids that people who smoke cigarettes are bad people.
  • It's never socially acceptable to be rude
  • Quite frankly, if you smoke you are causing more damage to me a non-smoker than you are to yourself. I consider that rude. I am not rude to people who smoke away from others because they show consideration for others. But if you are smoking in a public area where non-smokers and smokers have to breathe the air, that is wrong. I will ask nicely to put it out the first time, then I will be more direct. If that comes across as rude, Oh well.
  • Because during the latter part of the 20th century it was considered cool to smoke, and you were a 'square' if you didn't.
  • Rudeness is unacceptable in any circle and from anyone....family, friend, foe, smoker or nonsmoker. If someone is rude to me, guess what happens?
  • The worst are people who smoke weed like its legal but hate cig smokers...how stupid is that you would think THEY understand but oh well...everything that was cool in the 80's is not cool now and Vice-versa.
  • I have been a cigarette smoker for years. Many of us are considerate of others, but the large majority are not. I have noticed it on innumerable occasions, from when and where they smoke to how they dispose of butts. I never throw butts on the ground, but I've seen people stand by an ashtray and trow a butt on the ground, I've seen them empthy ash trays in parking lots and on the streets, etc. I think the non-smokers have just gotten fed up with a lot of this and I don't blame them. In many respects the smokers are getting what they deserve.
  • Gives people something to bitch about....stop complaining we serve this country by giving the goverment our money thru taxes =]
  • I've recently quit myself (been three months now) and I have realized, "SMOKERS STINK!" I'm not rude about it, I have to vacate the area and I do not enjoy being subjected to the second-hand smoke. Hypocrite? No. I quit for a reason. Health.
  • Who knows what goes through biggots tiny minds ! All I can say is that I can't stand these self rightious jerks who condem me and my family, ( we're all smokers in my house ), for something they have no real understanding of.
  • as far as im concerned, it hasnt, its very poor :(
  • Because, unfortunately, some smokers think their right to smoke trumps my right to breath. For those of us with lung diseases (COPD, Asthma, Emphysema, cancer, chronic bronchitis, Pulmonary Hypertension etc.) being in the presence of smoke can cause a crisis. A smoker can take it outside, but once a smoker has smoked in a room, it can be hours before we can go inside. Toward the end of her life, the county next to ours passed an indoor smoking ban, which was like giving mom her freedom back. For the first time in a long time, she could go into restaurants and shops without being afraid and she took full advantage of that freedom. Unfortunately, she didn't live long enough to enjoy that freedom in our country or in her own hometown.
  • I quit smoking about 7 months ago and its not until you quit that you realise what a pain smoking actually is. I think its just some smokers give the rest of you a bad name, blowing smoke directly at others and smoking right next to people who are eating. I find now that the smell of someone who has just had a cigarette makes me feel sick so i can see now why some people were rude to me in the past
  • Because those around the smoker are affected by the smoker smoking. I don't care if someone wants to smoke, but I don't want to, and that includes 2nd hand smoke. If someone was drinking and after ever drink spit it back out on everyone around them, that would justify being rude to them too.
  • Because smoke is (although non intentional) ...very invasive to the space around a smoker at least 4 feet in every direction around him. Which makes smokers, even if non intentional, rather obnoxious and rude themselves. People had to just put up with it for years indoors in establishments, even the work place. I used to work at a firm in the city where I was allowed to smoke at my desk! It is a stinky thing when you don't smoke to have to endure. Wow... How old am I? Lol!
  • I guess it's just because it's so fun to, instead of staying away from the smoker and the smoke, run up to the person smoking and do that fake coughing thing right in their face.
  • I dont know??? I am not a smoker and I think it is weird when smokers apologize to me for smoking around me!!! Do what you want... If I dont like it I will leave!!
  • its not socially acceptable to be rude! theres a lot of rude people out there! it seems to be the norm in a lot of places, especially large metropolitan cities in snotty western cultures. i find idyllic islands like hawaii have a lot less stressed out rude mofos. costa rica, thailand, islands in the caribbean ~ there are a lot of beautiful places in the world where people seem to be less prone to being rude. whats there to be so stressed out about in paradise, right? to answer your question specifically, i guess because of all the negative publicity surrounding smoking, its become passe to be a smoker. the rude ones view smokers as sad addicts who are endangering themselves and others by secondhand smoke. i think its funny that these same hypocrites that bitch so much drive around in vehicles with exhaust far more toxic than a little cigarette, cigar or pipe smoke. id take a little smoke over benzene, toluene and other voc emissions any day. why dont they put the mirror in front of themselves and see what harmful things they are doing to their own bodies? how about putting down that jelly donut for instance? granted, smokers shouldnt smoke inside where the smell might bother others. but the fake cough, im allergic to smoke when youre outside routine, is laughable. i think in general people are rude because theyre miserable inside. its easier to point the finger at someone else than fix your own problems. smokers make for easy scapegoats, theyve been vilified by the media so much. as a nonsmoker, i apologize for all the other nonsmoking buttheads out there.
  • because it's not like smokers have any couth they're blatantly causing harm to everyone they are around..i'm sorry but i don't want to die..smoking should not be allowed in public and it should definitely be looked down upon..if someone wants to chew tobacco that is totally fine you still get your drug fix and i can breathe clean air but if someone smokes there is little people can do to get away from that. if you hold your breath while walking past it just follows you, and smokers usually smoke right outside doors. We know enough now that smoking kills you so people who start in this day and age are just stupid if you want to die please jump in front of a bus and let other people breathe clean air If I go around and spray people with toxic gas it's illegal yet smokers do it every day and they think it's their right? that's exactly why people are rude to them.
  • Apparently if someone is smoking and you don't smoke you're automatically superior to them. I think there was a meeting about it.
  • I think it's simply the pendulum swinging the other way for a change. Many (but not all) smokers seem incapable of imagining how unpleasant it can be for non-smokers, and seem to have no concept, for example, that lighting up while you are still eating is rude and inconsiderate. Given that the health issues with both active and passive smoking are well established, I think it's about time that non-smokers stood up for their rights to not have to inhale other people's carcinogenic smoke. It makes your body and clothes stink, the nicotine sticks to everything in your house and then there's the appalling disrepect some smokers show for others by leaving their ash and cigarette butts all over the place. So, like I said, I think a lot of the adverse reaction many smokers are now experiencing is well-deserved. (But let me hasten to add that some smokers are as considerate as they can be, given it's a nasty habit in the first place.)
  • because its DISGUSTING and dont u think its a little rude to make us breathe in the smoke and maybe live a shorter life bcuz of it??? if u want to go make ur life shorter, get nasty breath and teeth and nails and hair and skin and everything on the inside, then go ahead, but dont do it around me.
  • Well I think when people smoke they`re super inconsiderate of where all that 2nd hand dangerous smoke is gonna end up like MY LUNGS. I smoked for 20 yrs and when i turned 30 i quit cold T and never looked back. I`m so glad they made nyc a smoke free town. sometime in the middle of the night someone lights up and walks past my building and a cloud gets pulled in through my window fan and i hate it.
  • Noone wants to get lung cancer.
  • I certainly don't like smoke, and when I'm in a vehicle with smokers, they always have asked if it's okay to smoke. I haven't experienced the problem as it has been described by many others, or in the press. I'm sure the attitudes vary enough from one locale to another. But it isn't a problem in my area.
  • I guess because for so many years it was socially acceptable for smokers to poison us nonsmokers with secondhand smoke. Now it's getting back at them... (I haven't personally been rude {i think} but it's just a thought)
  • i hate cigarette smoke! my mom smokes, and i cant stand it. also, its a turn off towards the opposite sex. and makes females (who smoke) look ugly. sorry. i hate it, and im so thankful that i dont smoke, never have and never will!
  • well i really can't say why but it seems to be the most aired news these days,its not like we are a dying breed or something
  • I think it's because of (1) the publicity about second-hand smoke and (2) the sense of entitlement that so many people seem to have in our society. In my opinion, it's rude to be rude for any reason. A lot of people seem to think that, if they see someone doing something they consider rude, it's perfectly okay to tell them so and/or to be rude to them back. I think that's just as rude as the original offense. I think you should influence people through your own example, not by attempting to exert your control over other people or shame them. I do think there are some places that smokers, out of consideration to others, shouldn't smoke, like in sheltered/enclosed areas, by doorways, and in or by line-ups. But just because I think this doesn't mean I go up to people smoking in these areas and tell them not to or give them dirty looks or whatever. Ultimately, they have just as much right to be there as I do, and since I'm the one bothered, it should be me who does something about it (like by by moving away). There is a difference when it comes to places with no-smoking rules/signs. In that case, it's okay to POLITELY alert the person to the rules, and if they don't butt out their cigarette, to alert the proper authorities. But even that doesn't justify rudeness.
  • Because people always love to have someone to pass judgment on.
  • I feel that if I am smoking in a designated area and follow the requierments I should not have to see ppl walk by and shake their heads or wave their hands infront of their faces. however the one thing that gets to me the most is when non smokers say to me: You should stop smokeing or " why dont you go pollut ur lungs again ! " Because smoking is a vice that alot of ppl can see they feel they can make comments. But I dont say: " you shouldnt play the online gambeling sites " or " Eating that candy bar will make u fat " everytime I see them doing something along those lines.. ....
  • i am a smoker from Canada it is totally illigal to smoke in any public place and if you do smoke outside it must be 5 metres from the entrance.I don't mind because I know the smoke hurts innocent bystanders but I think that rude nonsmokers that can't even see let alone breathe in the fumes just need something to complain about haha just like us Canuck smokers who have to go outside in 40 below weather to puff AND pay $11.00 apack to do it.Boy o boy is it ever time to quit "eh?
  • Were? In prison?
  • maybe it's because the hospital bills are rising..people can't afford to get sick.
  • people dont understand its hard almost impossible to quite. i dont smock but my mom has tryed to quite.
  • for the same reason people are mean to us overweight people. they feel superior and think its a will power issue. don't sweat it they are ignorant of addiction
  • I'm not rude to smokers. But the ones that blow smoke in your face deserve it!
  • Why was it socially acceptable to pollute my environment with your smoke? The next thing I'd like to see is a campaign against sound pollution from cars with a sound system that could shake the empire state building off its foundations
  • Because people are people and they suck.
  • I don't have an answer but sure do agree with this question. They aren't even as rude to drinkers. I wonder why they tax tobacco so high but don't do the same for alcohol.
  • It's a wonder how so many things are acceptable these days. Leave us smokers alone!
  • because it is rude to smoke if front of non smokers! i am sure one who respect others does not get any rude responses . but bother me and too true i will be rude to you! smokers kill other with passive smoking through their tab ends and cigarettes every where . what do you expect !
  • Because we always love someone we can feel superior to.
  • They're jealous of how cool we look.
  • I've accidentally blown smoke in someones face. They didn't like it. When i smoke now i try to find a place where there is not alot of people. Although i would rather quit smoking entirely
  • It's ok, people were rude to jesus too
  • YOUR QUESTION: Why has it become socially acceptable to be rude to smokers. ANSWER: What makes you think that is is socially acceptable to be rude to smokers? Here is the answer: Some smokers believe and think that when a person asks them not to smoke that this request is rude. But on the contrary, this request is not rude at all. IT is simply a non-smoker asking the smoker to get his or her smoke out of the (requester's) lungs, face, or eyes. That is a very reasonable, more than reasonable request and there is nothing rude about that at all. As a smoker, you have no way of controlling where your poisonous smoke goes or ends up. And this means that you deposit your poisonous smoke into my air and into innocent bystanders's air, and force us to breathe your poison of choice. Therefore, when any of us ask that you not smoke, that is not rudeness but that is a decent request that you not poison us. Many individuals have to go to the emergency room and to the doctor's and to the hospitals when exposed to some poisonous second-hand smoke. You do not see that because sometimes the reaction happens at night, long after you have left the scene of the crime. You blow your poison into the air, an innocent person, allergic to smoke accidentally breathes it in, and then gets sick that night due to your smoke. Second-hand smoke is pure poison to some humans. And to other humans, it is pollution and it can make them sick also. Most smokers get more colds and flu, and they are usually more ill than non-smokers. So, besides poisoning the air, you are costing everyone lots of money in higher health care premiums. No, it is not socially acceptable to be rude to smokers, but also it is not socially acceptable and never will be socially acceptable for smokers to poison non-smokers. There are no exceptions to this rule. You are not allowed to poison us in public or in private. That means if you have non-smokers in your home, you should at least smoke outside your building, not indoors. And smoke far enough away from the building so that you do not poison other human beings. If you think this is not poison, read the warning on the side of the cigarette packs. If you still think that it is not poison, then visit all the hospital units that house the smokers who are there for asthma, heart disease, and for treatment of lung and other cancers. Smoking can be the cause of lung, liver and kidney cancer and other cancers in the human body. Any organ that has blood in it or that has blood running through it is affected by smoking. Smoking takes the oxygen out of the human blood, and blood needs oxygen to be healthy and to keep other organs healthy. Therefore when you smoke, you are ruining your own health and ruining the health of every single person around you. Talk about rudeness!! Next question?
  • Why has rudeness of any kind become socially acceptable?
  • Because smokers have been rude, selfish & utterly inconsiderate for entirely too long and it's time that someone sets them straight. They don't think twice about lighting one of their mini cancers on anybody's face, even while others are eating, why should others be polite to them, particularly when/if it comes down to their health?
  • It hasn't? What IS socially acceptable is all smokers thinking they have the right to be rude to everyone. I've seen people be rude to smokers but 99.9% of the time its because the smoker is already being rude by smoking somewhere they either shouldn't because its the law or shouldn't because of common courtesy... and what is the definition of rude: lacking common courtesy.
  • So what if someone farts? That stinks too. What about somebodys old car w/fumes? What about body odor?What about wood stoves? What about deisel trucks? What about bad breath? Is it now okay to make faces at them, snarl up your nose and make loud rude remarks?
  • Didn't know it was. I no longer smoke, but if someone had been rude to me because I was a smoker, they may just have wound up with a cigarette suppository.
  • Because they are selfish brats who don't care how much damage and discomfort they cause and appeals to reason have failed and physical violence is frowed upon - though there was a case in England recently where the person asking the smoker to stop was killed by the smoker immediately (with a knife) rather than slowly by second hand smoke.
