|This may come across as an attack on smokers.
It’s only an attack on thoughtless ones.
I was walking from the bus stop to work today and ended up behind a smoker walking with a lit cigarette in his hand. I couldn’t get away from the stench! Nor could I get away from the possible effects of second hand smoke.
In general, I support the right of people to chose to smoke and usually, it doesn’t bother me to be around a smoker. When I’m around a smoker, I can move to the side or upwind. I don’t have that option when I’m walking to work. Short of stopping until that person was well away from me, I had to suffer through the exposure.
I’m sure the man in front of me today had no intention of causing discomfort or taking away my ability to avoid exposure to a carcinogen. I can’t remember anyone having noted this as an issue before and just thought I would ask.
Please be kind. If you are going to have a smoke, stop somewhere to do that. Then you can control who is being affected and others can chose to avoid you.
Thanks for your thoughtfulness going forward and make it a great day!
P.S. What am I thankful for today? I’m thankful I’m a Christian during the Christmas holidays! I’m thankful my grand daughter is coming to help decorate our tree tonight. I’m thankful to have been a part of Brett’s life as short as it was.
What are you thankful for today?
