I support your right to smoke. Really, I do. I even support your right to have smoking rooms in bars. I'm no anti-smoking Nazi. But for the love of Christ, why does EVERY SINGLE BUS PASSENGER light up at the Mumford terminal, lining the entire sidewalk from end to end? My morning bus wait is hell on earth, choking as I pace frantically looking for a small unpolluted patch of air. And when I ask you not to smoke IN the bus shelter, clearly marked with a "NO SMOKING" sign, why can't you move along instead of giving me a dirty look and ignoring me? It's the law, you motherfuckers!!!! And a note to the smoking parents: You not only look trashy when you're chain smoking while pushing a stroller, you're also a BAD fucking parent. If I'm breathing it in while ten feet away, your kid's probably been getting some too. You should all be ashamed. You have a right to suck back whatever toxic substance you like, but with rights come responsibilities. Be responsible, and stop subjecting everyone else to your filthy habits.
