    Default My New Weekly Rant / Retorical Question / Comment Column

    Why is it that when people throw their cigarette butts on the ground, either from their car or as they walk, get made at ME when I politely let them know that they dropped something?

    Makes perfect sense. You stink, your car stinks, everything in your car stinks. Better get that cigarette butt out of there. I wonder if they shit on the bathroom floor, wipe up and flush the toilet paper?

    If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there's no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

    Look, I smoke. It annoys the living crap out of me when my "fellow" smokers use the planet as their ashtray. And to casually flip a cigarette from a moving car anywhere, yet particularly here in drought filled South Florida is not only bone-headed, it is blatantly irresponsible and wreckless.

    By the way, am I the only fucker on the planet that buys his own smokes anymore? What is it that states that by the mere act of lighting a cigarette, I am immediately part of some benign "brotherhood", making it incumbent upon me to hand out cigarettes to complete strangers that instantly approach upon seeing the act, inquiring "Hey, can I bum a smoke?"

    If the person asks if they may "purchase" one (nominally displaying a quarter in hand), I have no problem with it, and more often than not give them a couple, as there is some inherant understanding of commerce at work here.

    One wishes that the rest of these fuckwitted, mooching pariahs would get a clue. One of my favorite lines from a film is: "Why don't you quit smoking? It would be cheaper for both of us." (Midnight Run)

    I have to admit ,I am a smoker too and I'm guilty of throwing butts.
    I am sorry to y'all ....
    When I get my new puppy I will train him to eat the butts I toss around....

    It never fails tho. People see you light up, they figure all aboard you know? I know I do that whenst I run out of smokes on those rare occasions when I venture out and about. But I try and keep a pack just in case.

    Smoke if ya gott'em.

    I hate that too tho. Especially being thrown out of cars on the freeway or highway. That's what frickin ashtrays are for people!!!

    My favorite move is when sombody trys to bum a smoke by asking me if I have an "extra" cigarette.

    Sorry, pal. This pack only had 20 in it when I opened it...
