Uniting against work-vaping.
https://www.wsj.com/articles/microwaved-...1544821176

While I realize the whiners are the same anti-anything zealots who would complain if someone blew their nose too loud, they do have a point about the courtesy thing. Really doesn't help vaping gain acceptance if people are puffing it into other's faces.

Jeff Kelley, a 32-year-old web developer, says it’s the sound that grates—“like a deep inhale through an extremely congested nose.”

I mean, he's got a point...

The oxygen thieves always do.

Especially when they're totally wrong.

RE: Uniting against work-vaping.
Most of this article cite the impoliteness of it rather than the typical scaremongering about how evil it is. For what its' worth, I would not like to sit next so someone darth vadering all day long either.

RE: Uniting against work-vaping.
Manners are everything.

The anti-vapers are usually the "chemical sensitive" nut jobs who will jump on any bandwagon. I used to work with one of those who was called Willie when he had one. According to my female friends his choice of name when he transitioned to she is awful.

Not that I'd know. As far as I'm concerned, she's still Willy but with a horrific authoritarian streak.

RE: Uniting against work-vaping.
I have to admit that, if I was a non-vaper, I would not like someone breathing out vapour - and to them smoke - in the very near vacinity of myself - it was the same when I smoked - I did not like smoke being blown in my direction. Vaping I do not mind at all - but that is because I know about it - and exactly what it is. I never vape when up close to other people - to me that is only commonsense - and courtesy.

I do mind it blown in my direction. When I smoked I didn't like it blown in my direction either.

RE: Uniting against work-vaping.
I used to smoke at my desk. And still would.

Many's the time I've given a patient a smoke to avoid having to smell them.

I'm not bothered by obnoxious perfume (Very prevalent where I work) or tobacco smoke or vape.

Obnoxious perfume is the worst.

I can and have encouraged vaping in my office. As long as it isn't cloud chasing as there's an optical smoke detector above my desk and clouds will cost around 6 large per false alarm. We get a minimum of 3 engines being a hospital. At 2 large per engine.

I do stealth at my desk all the time.

I keep the dragon for out in the park with Muttjob. If I want to vape at a kilowatt in the park, nobody (But my lungs) cares.
