cigar smoking

was sitting on the terrace in a restaurant where smoking is allowed. Someone lit up a cigar and blew the smoke everywhere for 1 hour.I wanted to tell him that his smoking offends me but did not. Should I have told him?

Re: cigar smoking

It's a bit like going to watch a boxing match and complaining that the competitors hit each other.

A terrace where smoking is allowed and people smoke there? As much as I am against people killing themselves in this way, what more can I tell you. Go somewhere else...

Re: cigar smoking

I have to agree with AbFab; smoking on the terrace is legal. If it offends you go inside or change your location. I don't smoke and am very happy to be able to eat in restaurants smoke free, but I can understand why smokers would be offended if you advised them you found their smoking offensive whilst they're obeying the law

Re: cigar smoking

We went to the village fete today.

It was lovely, but someone ten feet away started smoking. The smoke drifted our way.

I was going to beat him about the head with a baseball bat, but then I remembered that I'm not a complete twat.

I suppose I'll just have to get used to the fact that the world hasn't been created entirely for the benefit of Dougal's Breakfast.

Hey ho.

50/50 . I mean, on outdoors-terraces, smoking IS allowed. You CAN approach somebody about the problem, but rather might check up possibilities to move to another place.

I always enjoyed starting a Sheesha right beside some cigarette smokers and calmly tell them that I am a NON-smoker ...... and when they went up "but it stinks" retorting by "but miles less than your cigarettes"" ----- amazing that 98% of all complainers were and are cigarette smokers

Re: cigar smoking

It's funny: we've not had a smoker-bashing thread for, um, at least ten minutes.

We must be getting soft in our old age...

Re: cigar smoking

I think smoking stinky cigars is a disgusting habit. If we allow them to persist without reprimand, calling the police or leaving a note on the table in front of them, before you know it we will all be in mortal danger of watching someone else having a good time.

Something must be done.

Re: cigar smoking
