You watch THE VIEW??
Picked up 150+ cigarette butts in a 20 ft³ area outside of work today. 95% were all the same butts. What the fuck dude do you not realize it's a bad idea to throw smoldering things in mulch and leaves?
There are two ashtrays and a trashcan with 15' of where I picked these up.
Escalated it to management. Besides it being a fire hazard, it makes us look bad to customers and upper management. Being my assigned building we'd get hammered if execs saw this shit.

We actually had a burger joint catch fire because some dickhead threw a lit cigarette in the landscape mulch while sitting in the drive thru line .
That happened a lot at banks where I grew up in NC one hot dry summer. All the businesses with drive thrus eventually replaced the mulch with stone because smoker assholes wouldn’t stop throwing the smoldering butts into the fire hazards.
The few are spoiling it for the many in my apt. building.
Guests of a neighbor go down to the garage and puff away, three times a day
I have great neighbors,
( None of which smoke)
I can not come up with a way to approach the problem,.
They are going to be here two more weeks.

You go up to those reportedly great neighbors, smile, and say:
"Hi there, I'm [XYZ]. You guys are great neighbors, but I'm afraid that your guests are causing a problem by [doing whatever they're doing since you didn't specify]. Please ask them to [do whatever you want them to do instead]. Myself and your other neighbors would sure appreciate it. Thank you!"
The garage is a no smoking area ?
|Only the strong survive|
We had it is bad at work that two of us set outside of the room during a meeting.
Finally, the company had a ban on smoking in the building. We figured we lost an hour to two hours from these employees a day.
Caught the guy at work who's been throwing the butts in our mulch/landscaping at work (see bag of butts above). His car looks like a homeless person lives in it. Floor is covered with same brand cigarette boxes and empty Mt Dew cans, plus a bunch of other trash. It's been a week long sting involving me and security. Our guard came in with a big smile on her face this morning, I just say to her I know what you're about to say, but I just figured it out.
Guy is in a different department, I'm going to pass my intel to my manager and let him talk to the manager of the asshole.

coffee, and sarcasm.
I like to joke that I should take up smoking so I can take a break.
I can't afford to smoke. Not just because of the cost, but as a tradesman on piece work I can't afford to take the time. Also, I have no sympathy for smokers who complain about not being able to make ends meet. Just one pack a day is $200 a month.

There's an employee of Homeland Security in Washington D.C. whose name I forget as his nickname is memorable. It's Smoke break. That's what everyone calls him and it's appropriate.
The guy spends around 6 hours a day in the smoking area and the rest of the 8 hours doing his job.
We taxpayers pay for it, of course.
|Frangas non Flectes|
A cook I worked with about twenty years ago did this. He said it was bullshit that the smokers could go for a break whenever they wanted and he couldn’t as he didn’t smoke. I have a memory of him sitting on a pile of 50# sacks of potatoes, lit cigarette in hand, just staring off into space. This was after they changed the paper so you had puff on it or they’d go out, and eventually he did turn into a smoker likely from getting some on those little puffs. Nice guy, not all that bright.
I believe in the 25th amendment.
|Down the Rabbit Hole|
Our high school class traveled to Mississippi State for a football game back in the mid 1970s. We pulled into a parking spot. I got out on the passenger side and kicked a cup that was sitting beside the car. Guess what was in it and where it landed? I've hated that school ever since.
