Taking A Smoke Break

This is the Evil Corporation's "designated" smoking area. It is pretty Spartan, but for what the smokers need, it has everything: ventilation, a place to sit and smoke, a butt can, and full sun for half the day (and full shade and polar coldness the other half of the day).


Please note the startling absence of porcelain in this photograph. This happens for a reason; that is, you smokers need to go to the "designated smoking" area AND NOT THE RESTROOMS! The same thing applies to smokless tobacco users. Please dip, snuff, chew or whatever the Hell it is that turns you on ... without spitting that mess out on the urinals. Were you really born in a barn or what?

How rude is it when someone sparks up a cigarette in the restroom? Or spits out a big load of tobacco juice and misses the intended target? Has this ever happened to you?

Hey. Wanna go out for a burger? Good, you buy.

Yes, it's happened to me. And no, it wasn't pretty. You haven't lived till you see a woman spit tobacco into a urinal.

Disallowed here. But I must admit I didn't have the appreciation for that as I should have--until this very moment.

On the toilet seat?
Ick.....

Smoking on work site is forbidden here (Spain) and the only thing smokers can do is to go downstairs and smoke outside.
There are no designated smoking areas at Dumbass Industries. Smokers group outside after their coffee break. ((But I'll tell you a secret: Big Cheese smokes in his office))

And... EEEK! No! I never saw anyone spitting tobacco. But what about people smoking big fat cigars on your face? Isn't it nice too?

When we had horses I went the smokeless route, but it was just too gross and made me sick, too.

Today, for real, is my two year smoke free anniversary! Every now and then I think I'd just love a smoke, but thinking about going through the withdrawal again is more than I could bear.

Is it me, or am I seeing a toilet theme lately?

Forgive me my darling Skeeter.

Amber Star, it's been over twenty years for me. I only smoked about 8 years. Stupid high school prank. Go girl!!!! Never look back. It isn't worth trying to do it again. Have a beautiful life.

Uhuh! that must be a big turn-off...

Thankfully never been in such a situation :)

Hmmm, no one would dare do that to me in the office, they know I'm anti-smoking.. hehehe and they know how cranky I get (especially during pregnancy) when someone smokes around me. I could be a real bitch when it comes to situations like this.. LOL

I'm a smoker but I would never try to sneak one in a designated non-smoking area. I also never flick my butts out my car window or leave them on the ground. If there is nowhere to dispose of it I put it in my purse.

On a side, congrats to both Suzanne and Amber Star. I've tried to quit so many times without luck. I tried Chantix recently but it made me sick. So kudos to both of you.

Yeah, that's a big Oh Ick.

Looks somewhat like the smoking area where I work except we have plastic grass too. :)

hey Skeeter!

Please collect your 'kind blogger' award from my sidebar -if you are into that sort of thing:)

My eldest teen (18) has just started smoking and I am distraught, especially as part of my job is to give 'Smoking Cessation Advice'!!!

I'm a reformed smoker, the worst kind. I started at the ripe old age of 14 and quit when I was 24. To this day, I miss it. I still crave a cigarette when I am feeling stressed.

But, I simply detest the smell of smoke now and nothing pisses me off more than going into THE HOSPITAL, of all places, to get my treatment each month and have to walk through a ring of smokers.

Suzanne said...

Hey baby. I have good news. It's April.

Hope your smoke break didn't include the prairie fires we had yesterday. Take care.
