    Okay, the other thing that amazes me is that people think they either don't smell like smoke :shock: OR that they can cover it up by spraying on lots of ... something -usually something cheap and bad.

    One of the upper level admins in the district I work in smokes. Smoking not allowed on school grounds. But she smokes while driving to meetings at other buildings. Then sprays on the old cologne. Literally old, I think.

    One day she was waiting in our office for a meeting and one of the other secretaries said, "What is that smell? Have they been spraying for bugs?" :XD:
    What about the idiots with the windows up and kids in the back seat?

    Oh yeah, that one is great too.

    I work in an auto body shop, and sometimes we get these nasty disgusting cars with overflowing ash trays, cigarette butts all over the place... of course we have to pick those up before doing any work, if they're in an area we are working on. When you wipe the windshield clean on the inside, the paper towel is BROWN! YUCK!
    Or you get those same disgusting cars with a couple of car seats or booster seats in the back, so you know these people are poisoning their poor kids. It does't really affect me directly, but the idea still bothers me.

    Actually, it does. If you can smell it, you're breathing it in. So it affects you and your baby, too. No level of secondhand smoke is safe.

    That said, the body can rid itself of smoke damage and does. But if you face this daily, several times a day, even briefly, it does add up.
