I would just start bring a flask to work. 4-5 times a day just go outside and take a few swigs.
I'm not a smoker, but I always say I'm taking a smoke break and walking down to the store or just sit outside for a few. Not so much in the winter though.
hahah colab just associated smoke breaks with masterbating in office washrooms...of course this makes sense to all the smokers.
I stop smoking at least once a day
Bollocks, and to think I've been taking five days holiday a year to go off on my 'smoking holiday', by which I buy one of those duty free size boxes and smoke myself into a coma!
Damn you and your maths Baskerville
I hate when we're at a pub, and there's 2 empty seats at the bar, and I say, "Pardon me, is anyone sitting here?" and someone says, "They're outside smoking". Then the smokers come back, sit for a bit, go outside, smoke, come back, go outside, smoke – and all the while, my girlfriend and I who would love to sit at the bar are stuck staring at 2 good seats that are empty for almost half the time. THAT PISSES ME OFF.
I'm not a smoker, but I do smoke from time to time. I personally don't have a problem with people taking breaks all day to smoke. Where I actually like the smell of it if someone is smoking around me, the residual smoke smell left on people who just had a cigarette is nasty and the smell on their breath is usually 10 times worse!
The worst combination possible:
Go out for a smoke break...return to the office and drink a large cup of coffee. Finally, be sure and get right up in people's faces when you talk to them so they can smell your turd breath.
as a 15+ year smoker who has not had a cigarette in 3 months, i can say this with 100% certainty... Smoking Is Fucking Awesome!
you get 25 days paid vacation days??
omg stop crying!!!!!!!!!!
i dont even get any paid vacation days...
I dont smoke at work but when im pissed i love a good cigarette.... mm tastes so good....
I dont mind that the smokers go out for 5-10 min for a ciggy, infact sometimes I go out and stand with a coffee with them. It also makes me feel justified if i want to go sit in the kitchen for 10 min to fanny about, or to browse forums or read about stuff thats not work related. or even to take an extra 30 minutes on my lunch if im feeling brassy....
I worked in a place (a leading creative studio) where I had to be at my desk and working for 9am... if i was in the kitchen making tea at 9.05 I would get shit for not being in on time... that fucked me off... but also smokers were not allowed out, outwith certain break times... Although this lead to me never working late and getting into 'You are expected to work late but never allowed to be 5min late to start ' arguments...
What annoys me about smoking at work is the smell. Coming in after a smoke stinks. I breath it in from colleagues and it jumps down my throat and makes me fucking gag. I tell smokers, when I smell the smoke, that it stinks and could they 'go brush thier fucking teeth or something'.
You know what its like when you are discussing something at a computer screen you get pretty close and well lets say if mateh hasn't washed your going to smell it.
luckily most... i say most... are considerate and this happens rarley.
They get the work done though huh?
That's the crux of it. I'd hate to work in a regimented environment where you had designated 15 minutes breaks but were otherwise desk-chained.
You can't really notice/prove who is doing what when it comes to any job that includes computers. But you will notice if there is more physical labour or footwork.
I smoke at the desk all day long. my workflow would be seriously compromised if I had to go outside every time I smoke.
ok how THIS for bad: 4 guys at my work always go smoke together. 4 times a day. One of the guys quits, but he still goes and hangs out outside with the others!!
..so why the fuck am I sitting here slaving away at writing QBN posts when he can go and inhale second hand smoke???
IT'S NOT BLOODY FAIR!!! *runs away sobbing*
strange thing is smokers tend to be better people than non-smokers. Nons are so uptight and afraid of death. let loose, live a little, get over it dudes. Surfs up.
- well, good-looking, cultured smokers anyways, not those smokers who wear sweatpants and hang around outside gas-stations, they don't count.ThePublics
