Well said yourself Bro I am afraid those days are getting further and further away.
Checked em and fixed.:peace:
There's really only one situation this would ever come up for me, and to that person I would have this so say: "What the hell are you doing on my balcony?!"
He would probably be a fireman ;)
I've actually never had someone complain about a cigar I was smoking, have gotten a lot of compliments actually.
I rarley get responses from folks when im smoking me cigars. However I do occasionally get bollocks from the health nuts or a so called "tolerent" liberal political activist. The most histerical is when i hear it from a distance runner or marathon runner as they will tell me how unhealthy it is and how bad second hand smoke is and therefore tobacco should be banned all the while ignoring our Constitutional rights. Since im in Virginia and have my Degree's in History I always promptly remind them that tobacco built the bloody state! 1607 you bafoon LOL! Next I tell them about several friends of mine who are medical doctors who tell me the most common patients are actually those said runners whose hearts are giving out in their late 30's and early 40's because of the stress of always pushing themselves to the limit.
I generally explain to them that cigar smoking two or three times a week does NOT equal the same risk as smoking an inhaling a pack of cigarettes a day.
Its kind of like having a glass of single malt scotch two or three nights a week, compared to drinking a half of a case of Nattie Lite every night.
I'll offer anyone who complains the opportunity to come put it out for me.
To elaborate a bit, when I smoke, I smoke a pipe or cigar where it is "allowed" and generally not around others unless they are smoking too. If I take the time to find a secluded area be it a beach or casino or anywhere else...and someone comes to where I have been for quite some time and tell me that stinks and to put it out...it is simply not going to happen. My first reply would be thank you have a good day...after that, then the offer to put it out comes into play as I also suggest they can also leave if they don't like the smell.
