Tired Of Fags In My Face!

Wed Mar 03, 2004 1:52 pm

Are you like me, tired of having some inconsiderate idiot sucking on a fag blow smoke in your face.

I'm a non-smoker and hate running the gauntlet of cigarette smokers every time I try to enter or leave a building. Clouds of damn smoke in your face just to get into your office.

What do you think? Some places are proposing a 30 meter smoke free zone around doorways. Would this be enough to keep you happy and breathing easier?

Sometimes at work I am with co-workers who smoke, and it makes me very sick. I get migraine headaches when I am secondhand smoking. I don't care if people smoke, its their life to do as they wish, but please be courteous to my wishes and do not smoke in close proximity to me. Now that being said I can be outside with someone smoking just not in a car or in a small indoor room.

I totally agree. Altho I don't really have people blowing smoke in my face, I end up smelling & inhaling it anyway. It's a very inconsiderate thing to smoke in public places. They're starting to ban it in certain cities around here.

You are from Canada, so I guess they do call a smoke a "fag" up there. When I saw your title, I was thinking that I agree...I'm sick of homos too...lol.

Seriously...they outta start that 30 foot/meter ban around building entrances. Put the cigarette (or fag) urns waaay away from the doors. All those tobacco butts look unnattractive.

Hey DeltaGuy....

Why should they flame you or this thread. The Etymology of the word Fag is clearly defined in the dictionaries. Of course it is a word that does have multiple meanings, but as I went to University in Scotland, I don't see why I can't use that word. It's meaning is very clear in the context as used.

Of course it's ironic that people who use the word to mean something else entirely are also fighting to have words such as "marriage" mean something else entirely as well. Isn't it amazing the way language works sometimes  Smile

But I still hate smoke in my face.
Steve

I concur on the term "fag." It was used to describe cigarettes when I was a wee child. Imagine how shocked I was to hear it describe a human. Took me years to figure that one out.

Photopilot,

LOL, whenever I hear someone use the word "fag" to describe a smoke, I think it's halarious. Most of the time it's used in the context of "you fag" as in, someone homosexual. I wish the only fags out there were tobacco products lol.

I just thought some of the more sensitive members would get offended..hence the flame  Big grin

Gotta love the double edged language sword....and I also hate smoke in my face.

Hey, you're the guys who wanted buildings to be completely non-smoking, and so forced smokers right into your path outside the door - the gauntlet if you will. You could have shown some comprehension and allowed us a few smoking lounges here and there, but NoooOOOooo! You had to get all high and superior .
I find it is the non-smokers who are by-and-large the most inconsiderate between the two groups. If you ask nicely a smoker who's smoke is coming your way, he will just about always oblige you - he will either move or put it out. A smoker will generally try to sit someplace where he won't bother anyone. But that courtesy is rarely given to smakers. Most of the time smokers are insulted and ridiculed, and it just wants to make us blow the smoke right back in your face.

I am entirely in agreement with the idea of non-smoking offices, and OK with non-smoking restaurants. But in return, we would like to have a few spaces of our own.

Come to Texas. San Antonio just passed a no smoking law banning smoking anywhere in a public place unless it is seperated by a full height wall on 3 sides and a half height wall on the 4th. I think Dallas has a similar law and most other cities in the state are kicking one around. I love it, not having to smell other peoples cancer when I go somewhere to eat.

I agree, in my opinion is it ridiculous that some states banned smoking completely from bars and restaurants, they could split them in a smoking and non-smoking zone, when I am drinking beer I always enjoy a cigarette with it.

I don't smoke and I don't like the smell of smoke.

However, we have started to dehumanize people who smoke as we label them "smokers", and treat these people as "them".

They are still people, as are we. We non-smoking people need to keep that in mind next time we lose our cool and snap at another person to "put that sh!t out".

I used to smoke, but gave it up- most people I know are pretty cool about it around me and I can tolerate to a point; and then I go find fresh air. But, as the old saying goes: "The worst smoker out there is a REFORMED smoker. I'd take a smoker over that-anyday. Big grin

Couldn't agree more. In Australia, fags are cigarettes as well, although I must say, compared to Europe, there are alot fewers smokers here.

Excellent, BN747, excellent. I am fairly tolerant but I hate the smell, and I also use the fart tactic sparingly, in certain bad situations. For example, last week I was sitting in a restaurant, and some guy from another table came over to talk to the people on the one adjacent to us. He stood with his back to us and his fag in his hand BEHIND his back - keeping it away from his friends, and positioning the end of it approximately 2 feet from my face, giving me a full compliment of smoke. I didn't drop one on that occasion, but I considered it!

I'm torn between which tactics to use - whether to go for a complete blast-out which would make the smoker go away (but would make me appear rather rude and would make anyone else in the vicinity go away as well) or go for the "squeeze the cheeks" silent-but-violent approach - more discreet, but lacking in power.  Laugh out loud

My smoking story....I was in a fairly empty bar with a friend. We're both non smokers. Two people sat down next to us and started to pull out cigarettes. I asked them politely if they could move down the bar. They refused. Here comes the fun part. I had a bit of gas (farts to be blunt) building up and well, you know, what better opportunity to release it LOUDLY. When they complained my response was, "You stink up the bar your way, I'll stink it up my way." They moved. I can't believe I did that.

Today some guy was having trouble getting through the locked door at the lobby of my apartment building. He literally blew smoke in my face after asking for my help! I restrained myself as I discovered that his key was bent; then left the building coughing and choking all the way to my car.

Thanks, mister...

I have my own private smoking area at work.....it is called my car. Twice a day I leave the office for 5 minutes to have a cigarette. I walk out into the parking lot, get in my car, roll down the windows and smoke. Now if a another car comes and parks in a space next to me and the smoke from my private smoking area blows into his or her face while he or she is exiting their vehicle....too frickin' bad.....park somewhere else.  Smile

My private smoking area can be a real pain when it is pouring rain.
It also can be a real pain when the temperature is 10 below zero.

Agree with the point about washing. I don't know why cigarette smoke clings to clothes and hair more than any other smell, but it's revolting.

I am a smoker and personally, I think the tougher anti-smoking laws become the better. It just keeps me from that shit more often and helps me decrease the bad habit. I also totally understand non-smokers for hating the smell of it and always smoke when I am sure I won't bother anyone.
