There's hardly a member of my family that's not a smoker, and not one of them seems to be in the slightest bit interested in making any kind of compromise. The smell of a cigarette makes me nauseous, and being around it for a prolonged amount of time literally makes me sick, and makes my eyes burn, but I can't say anything about it or I'm being rude.
Smokers get pissed off when a public building bans smoking and throw a hissy. My college didn't allow smoking in the building, but smokers piled up at EVERY entrance to every building, so I had to expose myself to a thick wall of smoke to get in or out. Filed a complaint with the Dean (probably a smoker too) about it and was dismissed with "there are no designated smoking areas at the entrances to the buildings." Gee, then what are those "Smoking Area" signs doing there, I wonder? Sarcasm?
Yesterday I came home after my cousin had been here helping my grandmother with something, and found a lit cigarette burning in a thick patch of dry leaves and pine needles right next to their camper. Didn't even bother to snuff it out, just dropped it in the leaves and left. Once again, if I say anything about it, I'm being rude.
