Inconsiderate, selfish smokers

Posted on Tue, Mar 17, 2015 at 4:00 AM

Seriously?? Smoking on hospital grounds - especially a children's and women's hospital?? Peeling off the "no smoking" signs that are posted everywhere? Are you so incapacitated by your poisoned lungs that you can't walk the 50 feet to get off the property? Or you think hundreds of cigarette butts decorating every surface, snow bank, and bush is a "must"? Oh wait - I know! You must think that because YOU enjoy poisoning your body, you should be generous and benevolent enough to share your toxic fumes with the patients of the hospital - immuno-compromised babies, children, and women. Well done. Do you really think a hospital does not have air intake vents for "fresh" air? Shaking my head at smokers' utter lack of regard for vulnerable people... —Disgusted - SO disgusted!
