Smoking. It's bad enough that you want to kill yourself slowly, but do you have to kill me with second hand smoke as well?

Either quit, get the fuck away from me, or go vape.

Edit: Ah, look at that downvoat. I guess that means it is not the cool thing to hate smoking, which makes me hate it all the more!

as long as you're not in a closed room with a smoker, 2nd hand some is pread too thin to ever harm you. It's annoying, but that's all.

My asthma says you're full of bologna. I can't get within 10 feet of someone smoking without trouble.

Hence the get the fuck away from me part, of my comment.

That can be interpreted in any number of ways, such as, move over to the open window, go to your designated smoking area, or go to another country. I don't care, so long as I don't have to breathe in your smoke.

I am talking about those smokers that feel the need to smoke right up in your face, when they engage you in a conversation.

Visiting America is always a bit of culture shock that way.

In my country, it's hard for smokers to find a place that's not within range of a workplace, so they can smoke. It'll be outside, far enough away from office doors, apartments, or most windows, that it's a struggle. I feel for them and hope it'll help them kick it.

It seems odd that workers aren't the tip of the same spear point in America too, but I bet it's all tied up with the bruises-to-bankrupt medical system somehow. I feel for you and hope you'll join the rest of the g7 in that respect soon also.

I agree completely! I used to be a smoker and one of the main reasons I quit is that I was harming others as well as myself. The argument "Just move away from the smokers!" always comes up, and it's absolute bullshit, a single cigarette's smoke can travel down and pollute an entire street, depending on the wind. You simply CANNOT avoid that, and as soon as you smell the cigarette smoke it's TOO LATE to move away, if you can smell cigarette smoke, smoke particles have entered your system and possibly caused a cancerous mutation in one of your cells and sentenced you to a long, painful, horrifying death.

Smoking should 100% be illegal. There is ABSOLUTELY no need for it to be legal. There are ways to ingest nicotine without polluting a huge area with poison.

Making smoking illegal outright would never work. Your best bet is to just make it inconvenient to smoke and promote healthier alternatives, such as vaping.

Small talk when I'm getting a haircut. The struggle is real.

Just tell them, you've had a stressful day and you just want to relax in silence and get your haircut. I doubt they would object to that, just be honest and clear.

If you tell people you don't want to talk they will think you're an asshole. The trick is go in with earbuds, and an iPod/iPhone. Ask them if you can listen to music while you're getting your haircut.

I actually really enjoy it. Breaks up the monotony of a haircut.

I go to a foreign part of town. Outside of a few people who want to practice their English, most chat in their native language with the staff.

This is why I am all for the government giving cash in exchange for voluntary same-day sterilization (tubal ligation or vasectomy)

Also, this. There should be testing done first, just to show folks are above unreasonably low IQ and life aptitude levels. Breeding should be a privilege, not a right

I can't even begin to fathom the arrogance one would need to have this sort of disregard for his fellow man. These are human beings, not livestock. People with the same innate rights of self-ownership and self-determination that you have. I'm not going to beat around the bush, giving one social group that kind of control over another is sociopathic.

I don't care how noble your intentions are, all forms of eugenics are gravely unethical, and I'm disturbed to hear people still advocating for this outmoded, unenlightened barbarism in the 21st century.

Hahaha I usually talk with people when they are sitting on the toilets, that don't bother us a lot. What bothers me is more phoning while shitting, this sucks a lot, my mom do it a lot.
