The smoking Nazis don't care. You made contact with it, so you just as dirty as the others.

This is what may happen when you try to kick someone's butt.

Yeah, the anti-smoking Nazis are really stupid and annoying, but I wouldn't go as far as wanting them to all die.

This strikes me as the sort of thing you just go and fight in court.

He picked it off his shoe, and threw it on the ground. That counts as littering.

I just wish people would go back to smoking as an occasional pleasure, instead of a necessity, hour and hour, day after day, never getting anything more than the illusion of stress relief.

Yes, not wanting people to throw cigarette butts on the ground by the dozens is reason enough to be called Nazis. Your whiny hyperbole is spot on.

Ken paid the fine - even though he's been a non-smoker for years and the butt was someone else's litter.

He said: "I had to admit I was guilty even though the litter wasn't mine.

"I did throw the cigarette butt on the floor so I put my hands up and paid the fine straight away.

"I have always been totally against dropping litter and always told my kids not to do it. I did it subconsciously."


What a refreshingly mature attitude.

Sure, he probably still smokes and made up this story for the wife.

Not that long ago I stepped in dog shiat while walking through the park. I just wiped my feet in the grass of the very same park where I stepped in it ... I guess I should have take off my shoes, and placed them carefully in a bio-hazard bag, then called the proper authorities (at my own expense) and had it properly removed to the shock and terror of everyone at that very same park that day?
 
2012-04-30 06:12:44 PM  
The guy admitted he did something wrong and faced the consequences of his actions. What exactly is the problem here again?

Reductio ad absurdum.

Perhaps you should have gone with your natural instinct and licked your shoes clean.

Yeah being against smoking in public places was probably one of the Nazis most benign policies. I don't even get why smokers go on about being oppressed and how 'fascists' are keeping them down, it almost seems like they need something to calm them down...

I certainly feel for that guy, but he did litter. Maybe if they ticket more smokers they'll wise up a bit.

sfpfc: turning right on red fine is the biggest city scam of all time


Having it in place is like the cell phone laws, where most of the people who would take the time to not do it, already don't do it. While everyone else who is just like fizzark it, and go, won't adhere.

It's when the PoPos who sit on hotbed lights on April 30th because Payday is tomorrow and they want to win their office ticket pool.

/yeahhyeahhh, Police don't have ticket quotas or pools, Bigfoot isn't real, and 9-11 was caused by terrorists

Read the comments. You'd think the country that invented English would be better at using it.

We picked-up about 12 - 20M illegal immigrants here in the US and we can just toss them aside either. Why should the limeys' be any different?
 
2012-04-30 06:22:21 PM  
I don't see that he littered, if he picked detritus off his shoe, he wasn't contributing to the desecration of the environment, he was keeping himself clean, and considering that the filter has been in someone's mouth, I don't blame him for not wanting to touch it longer than necessary to remove it from himself, I would have fought this.

You forgot to mention that The Sun was there.
 
2012-04-30 06:25:13 PM  
I have to be honest, everytime I see someone throw their filter on the ground I'd love to be able to shove it up their ass.

Smoke all you want, but throw your shiat away properly you selfish assholes.
 
2012-04-30 06:26:11 PM  
So they can just put a bunch cigarette butts all over town center with little dabs of glue on them and fine everyone that gets one of them stuck to their shoe.

I want that job.
 
2012-04-30 06:28:08 PM  
I smoke and I am disgusted by people throwing their butts on the ground especially when they are still burning.

AssAsInAssassin: TheHighlandHowler: Sure, he probably still smokes and made up this story for the wife.

One of our neighbors routinely pulls up by our shrubs, gets out of his car and huffs one down before he gets home so his wife doesn't know. Maybe she can't smell.

It's good to see that we're not the only ones that have quotas to fill.

So if anything is stuck on your shoe, you can't just toss it off?

jaylectricity: I just wish people would go back to smoking as an occasional pleasure


Yeah, just like in the old days! Back then smoking a pack or 2 a day was just a jolly jape, now smoking a pack a month is a sign that you're an anti-social monster that wants to kill others via your third and fourth hand smoke.

What I'm trying to say is that I disagree with your stupid comment.

He should have vomited on it immediately. it's illegal to spit but legal to vomit and somebody else will clean it up for you.
