Smokers Have Rights, Too!

Posted on Tue, Jun 8, 2010 at 2:02 PM

If ONE MORE person comes up to me while I'm smoking somewhere unoffensive OUT OF DOORS and pretends to hack or cough in my general direction, I'm going to fucking flip. ESPECIALLY to people who then get in a vehicle. Yes, non-smokers have a right to clean air, but I, who chooses not to drive a vehicle, has to endure the congestion of vehicles in Halifax, day in and day out?

What about MY right to clean air? Do I stick my head in your car window and cough in your face because your car exhaust is offensive to me? No, I don't.

Why? because that would be fucking rude.

Before any other non-smoker pretends to cough in the general direction of a smoker smoking outside, they should consider the amount of exhaust pollutants that are constantly entering the "clean air" from the hundreds and hundreds of vehicles that are expelling poisons at any given time in Nova Scotia. Myself, I'm more concerned with over-congestion and vehicle pollutants than 12% of the entire province who might be having a smoke outdoors. So fuck off, and don't cough on me. —Blow it our yer arse!
