No means no

Posted on Fri, Sep 2, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Look, I've bummed my share of smokes. I used to give out one or two. But despite the public all thinking I'm a fat public servant, I can't afford it anymore. I don't mind someone asking, but if I say no, don't ask for the butt. It's disgusting. I'm on a smoke break and won't get another for a few hours, so I'm smoking it. And quite frankly I don't want to hang out with you on one of my only two 15 minute breaks while you wait for it. And what's with the rude responses when I say no? One person actually responded "I hope you choke on that butt." You know what? If someone's gonna choke on it, it's me, because I bought it. The tax hike last year alone means I balanced your fucking provincial budget for you. That's enough! —Smokers balanced the budget, not Stephen McNeil
