My Safe Space
This really happened to me.

While riding home from work in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I caught a cigarette in my lap. The cigarette's owner thought my efforts to dislodge the butt were so funny, he failed to notice that the car ahead of him had come to a full stop.

I just kept riding. That was one situation I could not improve.

Agreed.
You should have pulled him out through the sunroof. tongue [/quote]

Pull him out through the vent window!!! No. Wait. There aren't any of those any more, are there. Damn!

I think it would be even trickier to pull them through the "vent system" of the car!

If you're already polluting the air with the smoke, why not just litter as well. The same self centered attitude that rationalizes smoking around non-smokers in an indoor building (banned now in many states) easily allows them to toss the used cigarette anywhere.

In reality it's probably just a matter of habit and there's no thought process involved. Those they hang around or learned to smoke from always littered, so they do the same.

Not all smokers are as described.

The Phillip Morris team got me about 20 years old. My wife always complains about my pants in the washer having butts in them. I don't throw them down and don't smoke around others, unless outside. If it bothers them outside, I don't have much sympathy for their tree hugging ass. I will agree on one thing, a no smoking section in a restaurant is like a no peeing section in a pool.

My buddy was a very considerate smoker (he has since quit). He would NEVER throw a butt down.
I borrowed his fly fishing vest once. Here I am fly fishing on a pristine river and unzip a pocket on the borrowed vest to find a set of line clippers. Out falls about 50 cigarrette into the river. The other fisherman thought I was wrestling with a 50 lb steelhead as I swiped, jumped and splashed all over the place picking them out of the water. tongue cool


Ladies, if a man says he'll fix something, he will. There's no sense reminding him every 6 months or so.

I am married to a smoker. She would never flick her butt.

I also have fielded lit butts from a-holes in front of me - like we all have.

I agree with the comedian I once heard - can't remember who it was... a little help please? (I think it was Tim Reynolds...):

"Whatever you are caught throwing out your car window gets shoved up your ass."

Even a cig butt would get the point across... especially if still lit.
