This is a question Prejudice

"Are you prejudiced?" asks StapMyVitals. Have you been a victim of prejudice? Are you a columnist for a popular daily newspaper? Don't bang on about how you never judge people on first impressions - no-one will believe you.

It just drives me mental. I work with many, most of them I get on well with. I can't stand the smell, not just the smoke, I can smell them when they walk past me, and they throw butts everywhere. I work in an industry that requires various levels of inspection and check on work done. I spend a considerable portion of my working day trying to get inspections completed and work signed off in between their "smoke breaks", yet if non-smokers tack 5 minutes onto their lunch we cop a right bollocking for it. I have never met a smoker that always uses a bin or ashtray. I especially hate it when they flick them out the window of their car, this could have something to do with being behind them on a motorbike, or the fact that is oftem hot and dry where I live and bushfires are common. These are the same fuckwits that donate to bushfire appeals yet, start fires through their own filthy habit. I can't stand that everywhere I go, is littered with butts, the streets,especially around traffic lights, doorways of government buildings and pubs. You can pick a smoker driving, because the drive really gingerly and often all over the place, until they flick the butt out the window, and then they're off. I know the smokers out are going say "but I don't do that", bullshit, that's what they all say, you just can't see yourself (or smell yourself for that matter).

And.......here we go
you are a prime example.There is no point argueing with you, because your argument is entirely without foundation.

I don't know you
And I have never, ever used the "ignore" button before now...

So congratulations! You're zapped onto my ignore list. Wanker.

Right then.
I can understand the bushfires thing, but it isn't just smokers that cause that. Idiotic tourists who don't clean up their fires properly are just as bad.

Secondly, as a smoker who doesn't actually tack 5 minutes onto lunch breaks, or slope off whenever I want, I take issue with practically everything you say. I don't smoke when I drive. Secondly, I use a bin to put butts in.

Actually, fuck it. You don't deserve a reasoned, well-thought out answer.

The brainwashing is complete with this one.

You have to wonder if he lost a close relative to lung cancer or something.

Christ this is going to be a long week.

You would be the first
if you actually didnt do those things,but I've never met one who will admit doing it, even if they were in the middle of doing it.Pretty much the point of my little rant really. They all say that their addiction does not affect me, so I should just shut the fuck up, but the fact that I am forced to put up with the stench, the litter that they leave, and carry their load while they get another hit, or put up with a tosser getting violent because he/she cant get a hit, really fucks me off. Why should I have to tolerate their addiction and the impact it has on me? If it were just killing you quietly with no impact on me, honestly, I would not give a flying fuck.

By the same token
Why should smokers have to put up with jumped up little Hitlers thinking they're better because they choose not to inhale tobacco smoke?

I have never said
that I am any better, just that breathing the foul stench that causes me headaches, the resultant litter of smokers and my experiences with smokers, pisses me off, because of this I prejudge smokers/smoking to be filthy, lazy and bordering on violent should their addiction be questioned.

I just hate the smell
it nauseates me... but kill yourself however you wanna, we're all gonna die one day.

I have no trouble with people smoking
so long as I don't have to breathe their smoke, smell their breath, look at their discarded fag butts...hmm, maybe I do have an issue!

The point is...
If someone chooses to smoke, then that's their business - and I don't have a problem with it per se. It's nothing to do with me, what substance someone chooses to put into their bodies.

However, it crosses the line when their addiction negatively affects me. If I'm walking behind a smoker on the pavement, then I have to hold my breath and cross the road. It smells fucking disgusting.

Smoking in the street is horrible
walking along behind some pikey bastard who is blowing shitty smoke out with every emphysemic breath pisses me off.

Be a real man you track suit wearing fuckhole, smoke a real tobacco product, not a low tar, floor sweeping that you got cheap off a mate in the shitbox pub where you drink fake cider, you cunt.

Real men smoke full tar, filter-less man fags and die of throat cancer before they become a burden on the over pressurised state.

I am a non smoker, but my partner smokes and has the good grace and manners not to smoke near me, because she knows how much I dislike it in close proximity. It worries me shitless though, about what it is doing to her.

Agree about the driving thing
Pisses me right off when I'm stuck behind a wanker dawdling along at a speed which I associate with kerb-crawling - when there's a clear straight road in front of them, with no hazards and no reason to crawl.

Then I realise that the reason they're crawling is because they're fucking smoking at the wheel, and therefore it's necessary for them to crawl for safety's sake, because their attention is being diverted from the task of driving.

Why should I have to be stuck behind a dickhead just because they're addicted to a drug?

Wouldn't the smokers and their detritus in doorways, plus the fact that they take fag breaks at work be a result of the unnecessarily draconian smoking bans introduced by most states? It certainly seems that way in the UK.
