But wait, all is not well! There are a group of whinging, intolerant souls, that appear to be waging war on a particular social gathering.
It appears that our beer gardens have suddenly become an unhealthy environment, in which to venture. People are suddenly fearful of stepping in to this area - believing that it has suddenly become, a mighty great risk to their health!
So, what lurks in these social areas? How can a sunny beer garden, carry a health warning?
It appears that swirling fag smoke is the problem! Our beer gardens have suddenly been populated with an increase of
'anti-social' brethren - who are apparently increasing our chances of lung cancer and other respiratory related problems !
What sensationalist bollocks! I am a non-smoker and see no
harm in a minority, yes, a minority - enjoying a drag. in the fresh air.
I am getting a little tired and weary of folk, constantly 'bleating' about the increasing number of smokers, in beer gardens - as a result of the favourable climatic conditions.
|THERE'S A COUPLE NEXT TO US NOT SMILING!|
Show some tolerance. An occasional slight intake of ciggy smoke ain't going to reduce your life expectancy by ten years - as some folk would have you believe!
Surely, you must agree that smokers have had a pretty rough ride, since the introduction of the smoking ban - you want to hear some of the ludicrous, barmy and misinformed comments - you probably have!
Let's face it, smokers have to stand out in the inclement conditions, on most occasions - banished from the warmth of the boozer, like a member of a leper colony!
Whats all the fuss about?
OK, I am a fair minded geezer, and I can fully understand a couple with children, sat next to a table, with a fag-puffing-foursome, billowing their secondary fumes. But, they can always move.
What also annoys me is that the AFMMB(anti-fag moaning- minnie brigade) are made up of many former smokers, who bleat: "Disgusting habit" or often comment : " Urr, I can smell cigarette smoke."
Don't you think those type of comments, from ex-puffers, are a little hypocritical, hysterical even - and dare I say, a tad uneducated?
So, come on(some of you), let's have a little humility, understanding and tolerance, towards the smoking fraternity - because without them in attendance, many more boozers would have been adorned with metal shutters, boarded-up windows, a for-sale sign - and of course, a few weeds growing out of the gutters!
