RANT, RANT



I just absolutely positively HATE IT when people smoke (in general, I have to admit) and especially where it is clearly marked that they should not. That's what the sign says, and there is also one a bit farther down from the uncaring woman with the cigarette in her hand:  "Smoking is forbidden inside and in front of the building."

And the building is the Institute of Oncology...

I was seated on a bench by myself, waiting for my friend to finish her chemo session, when I snapped this woman.

Over a period of about 20 minutes, four people sat down next to me and pulled out cigarettes. I politely showed them the sign. One was profusely apologetic and left, whereas the others gave me looks that 'said', "I can smoke where I want," to which I replied verbally that I had been asked by the man at the reception inside to photograph persons who were smoking. (Hurrah, I always have my impressive big camera with me.)

They left....

It's a vile habit.

My brother still smokes. He's the sort who won't even stop if his lungs were full of cancer.

Remind me not to cross you . . . You're tough.
