” Perhaps if smokers weren’t treated with such disdain they would be less difficult and stop throwing cigarettes on the ground and standing beside public doors while puffing away.”
An unlikely scenario. Perhaps if the residue and detritus of nicotine addicts weren’t injurious to the health and wellbeing of those of us who prefer to breathe cleaner air, as well as being unsightly and filthy, you would not be treated with such disdain.
If non-smokers could walk down the street or into and out of building without having to endure the wall of smoke and the carpet of stompies, we might have more respect for you.
It’s a bit like the Middle East in that there will never be a solution that pleases all parties.
