The 'wall of smoke'
May 16, 2008 4:51pm CST
New laws in th UK which prohibit smoking in public buildings such as pubs and restaurants have created a new hazard I call 'the wall of smoke'. Forced to take their lethal habit outside there is usually a congregation of people hanging almost furtively outside pubs, clubs, offices, and shops. Such is their desperation to feed the habit that they puff away intensively in all weathers forming a dense cloud which all ho wish to enter the building are forced to walk through. Honestly, I almost think it was better in the 'bad old days' when they were allowed to smoke inside! Have you had experience of this?
