I'm not sure where the hell you people live though.
It's so easy to just respect one another and get off of your damn high horse, I'm just not sure why so many people put their panties on sideways in the mornings and walk around with a crappy attitude towards each other.
The problem is that to those of us who don't smoke, the only people we see smoke are those who walk down a crowded sidewalk, not giving a damn about those around them. You say most smokers you know go around the back of the building, or get away from people, well us non-smokers don't see that. So the perception is totally different.
Like today, walking into work, a guy sitting outside on a seat of a coffee shop, smoking away as people walk by him. I know he's not inside smoking, its illegal. There is no difference to the damage he is doing people, if he was allowed inside or outside to smoke.
I do appreciate those that take the effort to make sure there not harming those around them, by smoking away from people.
It could be that people in Dayton are just a bunch of *******s who don't give a damn, i could be living in the wrong city :p
