Please take the time to realize my comments are not and were not directed at your explanation. As a result, it spins my statement and skews the relevance.
I never said to stay home, but the predominance of my comments were about the "Smoke-filled bars" everyone seems to provide a doomsday defense for. The bowling line was a joke -- tongue-in-cheek if you will. I figured people would make the connection.
I don't want cigarette smoke in my working environment and I never said that either. I never inferred that. I'm not twisting your argument, so I would have hoped people wouldn't twist mine.
I also wasn't referring to you working at Slappys, rather using that (or my old haunt in PA) as a reference where everyone in the place smoked.
So, for those of you that missed it -- here's COMMON SENSE.
Do people who don't like smoking ... why would you even consider going into a "smoke filled bar?" A dive? A sh*thole? If you're going to come off as "I don't want to breathe your smoke, why patron places where A) YOU KNOW there's going to be a cloud and B) has no redeeming quality other than drunk people smoking cigarettes escaping their lives?
I'm using the most far-fetched establishment as an example and people still don't understand.
I don't want to smell or breathe smoke at places like work, restaurants, DMV, etc. ... but to target smoke-filled saloons, and then never have any inclination to step into such places, is saying "I don't want to breathe your smoke, which is fine, but you can't breathe it either ... and you can't do it in a place I will never patronize."
