Stinky smokers and their lame excuses.

21 June 2012, 15:47
Sis man!

How in the name of fried chicken can feel ok about inhaling stuff that smells like old, burnt shoes?

I kinda see the motivation of an insecure teen-ager trying to fit in with the 'its cool to get drunk and puke and brag about it the next day' club but heck man, don't you kinda grow out of it sometime?

There's a huge flippin sign on the box that says 'causes cancer', yet there you are, sucking away at that stick like it's the most natural thing in the world.

I was gonna moan about how you smell like an unwashed bum but as I started typing, I realized that anyone who was thick enough to keep sucking on something that leads to a horrendous, torturous death would put personal hygiene and consideration for others far down the chain.(Lol, I eagerly await your 'I am very hygienic' comments).

Reading the comments on the smoking article thingie, I noted the old 'car fumes are more dangerous for you and your unborn child' argument... Hahahahahahaha

Let me get this straight: In your reasoning, it's ok to make me breathe in your nicotine flatulence because there is something worse out there?

"Hey Joe, stop hitting me in the face with that tennis racket!" "No Bob, it's ok, a cricket bat is worse!"

"Hey Mary, stop dropping rat poison in my tea!""No it's ok Sally, Aromat is far worse for you!""Oh, ok Mary, my bad, keep on spiking my tea... and thank you!"

That's just doff man.

I'm not saying you are selfish, I'm saying that your habit is.

Then there's the old 'non smokers have no right to tell me how to live my life' argument.LMAO

Smoke in your own backyard all you like, but how the heck do you think it's ok to force me to smoke with you anywhere else.Maybe I should stand upwind from you and gift you with my baked beans aftermath all day.Then, when you moan about it, I'll call you selfish and tell you to stop telling me how to live my life.

It's a silly, stinky habit that makes you smell like a dead man's socks and kills you slowly.

Don't be doff man, rather spend your money on long needles or something. That way you can stab yourself in public without smelling like raccoon ass and you can sit anywhere you like!

After watching two relatives die of throat and lung cancer, one of them stubbornly smoking to the last few seconds, I can tell you that it is not worth whatever perk it gives you.But you won't listen to me, you'll keeping sucking on that death stick and curse all who oppose it.

You'll go ahead and justify the stompies on the ground, the putrid stench of nipping, disgusting secondary smoke which makes my eyes water and my lungs protest with coughing. You'll tell me it's not bad for me therefore I must put up with it.

The rest of us non smokers will be forced to politely put up with your habit like a parent with an afflicted child.

Remember not to moan when I start cupcaking you in public, it's not bad for you because car fumes are far worse!
Fair is fair buddy and I'm stocking up on baked beans and pilchards!
