I'd say the second two choices combined.
Yes. Screw 'em.
Depends, If they are in my domain they will live by my rules. In their domain I go by their rules.
In a more neutral setting I evaluate each situation individually and act accordingly.
I am always amazed to see people lighting up around other people as if their smoke was something everyone would want to have to breathe.
I think nicotine junkies must be in major denial. They can't all be assholes. Not all of them.
I used to think the same about nico-fascists.
I would say that depends on where you are and the situation. For example. My wife has asthma and smoking bothers her. For that reason, I do not smoke inside the house or in our vehicles. If we are outside, and there is a breeze, if I want to smoke, I smoke, but downwind so it isn't a problem for her. I don't smoke in front of my friends that I know that it offends. On the other hand, most of my friends know that I am aware if my smoking offends them and we make the situation bearable for all concerned. When visiting them, they know if I decide to go outside to "check the weather out" that I'm going outside to smoke and they carry on without me until I return. I agree that smokers have a need to be sensitive to the needs of others but non-smokers also need to just lighten up and not be such buttheads. I didn't vote in your poll because your poll is rather one-sided. I think that clearly displays your attitude towards smokers.
I should have made it multiple choice. I think it's somewhat okay to smoke around adults who say they don't mind it but even so, you are still harming them nonetheless and many people are too timid to object even if they really don't like it.
If I were a smoker I would only do it where no one would have to suffer from it. I would not do it around pets either.
I use to smoke around other people who wished that I didn't but I did it anyway.
"Fair" depends on the situation, I guess.
If non smokers weren't buttheads ( aren't the smokers actually the "butt-heads? ), do you think smokers would have ever gotten a clue about being considerate?
