But not in the traditional way lol. I work in an area with a lot of office buildings so travelling to and from work I have to pass a lot of smokers. I would never begrudge anybody a smoke because they need to make the decision to quit themselves. A few times this week I've had a couple of mouthfuls of exhaled smoke - one thing I will say is that it stinks, I often hold my breath walking past a smoker lol.
Anyway, I was on a queue in the shop yesterday to get my lottery tickets. A lady joined the queue behind me and proceeded to talk to the lady in front of me. Within seconds the lady behind said she was dying for a smoke. Me, having some manners and a bit of sympathy for smokers, was going to let her go in front of me until she started to complain about everything. And I mean everything.
She doesn't smoke during the day, only after work every day or when she is having a drink. She has an e cig for work. The lady on the counter is too slow and the other staff member was 'chatting' down the back (I am almost certain she was talking to a supplier) the lottery will be drawn by the time I get served. She was going to miss her bus. She just complained about everything. Me being me decided then that rather than offering her my place in line I was going to go as slow as possible. And I did. And I could actually feel the lady getting more agitated by the second. But I don't know why she was worried - she was about to be reunited with her friend ciggie in a 10 pack and go home for a bottle of wine. Surely that would have made everything right with the world (sarcasm doesn't come across great online lol)
I have no intention of becoming a holier than thou ex/non smoker but I hate when people do nothing but complain. Was I naughty or did I do the right thing? I was also very tempted to say to her 'I have just stopped the filthy things so would you please stop talking about them'
