Really? A guy grabbing a smoke whilst on a break? OK, perhaps he should have found a spot on the downwind side of the vessel, but get a grip. BTW, what are the regs about smoking on a vessel?

A mother, her friend and two children were left fuming on a Toronto ferry when a crewman lit up and filled the air with cigarette smoke.

FILLED ALL THE AIR IN EXISTENCE WITH SMOKE!

seriously the dude is smoking outside just chilling. sometimes people complain just to start trouble. too bad it isn't like the olden days where you could just tell them to shut up or you'd make em walk the plank...or something.

When I started to read TFA, the picture showed the guy smoking, so of course he must have been doing so near flammable materials. Nope. Just smoking. Complainant is just an asshat, who no doubt will sue the city and attempt to get millions for this.

Meanwhile, this guy will likely get fired. What he did was against policy, and probably not the brightest move ever, but should it cost him his job? No.

"when the children complained about smelling cigarette smoke."

The poor children. Did they make throw-up noises, wrinkle their pert little noses, or perhaps hold them and say, "PEWWW," like Mommy does, whenever she smells smoke--anywhere, anytime, no matter how diluted it is?

I hope Mommy gets them some counseling to help deal with this traumatic experience. She could probably use a few sessions herself.

You're full of shiat, anyhow. Was just a complaint, feel free to say I told you so when she files a lawsuit, but she won't. That said, she sure sounds butthurt - I smoke on the ferry sometimes, it's just about finding the right spot.

My favorite story about a smoker is the one about the American at CDG airport in Paris telling a Frenchman who is smoking that he is violating the law. To which the Frenchman asks, "Are you the police?" and keeps smoking.

Not a smoker and wouldn't care if this crewmember was doing this.

I was expecting to read about someone molesting a child or throwing people overboard. This woman make a big stink about a guy catching a smoke. What a total c word biatch. "I'd like to ride the ferry again," she said. Well I'd think twice before I did if I were her.

I no longer smoke, don't like people smoking in my house or near me in a restaurant etc, but I have no problem with anyone smoking out doors. And I hate people who are always on a 24/7 anti smoking campaign. Like this guy who regularly waits at the same bus stop as I do and he's always hollering at people about smoking at the bus stop. I can't wait for the day when someone cock punches the prick.

I live in a place that prohibits smoking in the workplace, any workplace. I'm a supervisor in a 300,000 square foot manufacturing facility where most workers are at least 100 feet from each other. I feel like a moron enforcing the no smoking policy, especially since there's a dozen more risks to a workers health than the guy smoking nowhere near anybody else.

Judging by the fact that the officials in the article wont release the guys name, and describe him as a long term employee, im going to assume they are being reasonable and are just going to slap him on the wrist. At least, I hope so.

Alright. I understand that smoking is a completely disgusting habit... and that's coming from a smoker myself. But seriously? This is making news? Look the only story here is if there was some sort of smoking ban on the boat. Which is a pretty lame ass story. "Man smokes in no smoking area!" OoOOoooOoo!

The fact that it was a boat makes it even less interesting. If this was a restaurant worker, taking a five minute break to smoke it up at an empty table, then at least you have the problem of a confined place while people are eating. In the open air on a moving boat, the potency of the smoke would be less damaging then a farking car passing you waking down the street.

Yeah if there was a No Smoking policy on the boat, then the dudes a farkwit, but it's not exactly worth an article, you know?

Having quit smoking two weeks ago, I'll talk loudly so that you may hear me from way up on my pillar. Long story short, I had a huge sales meeting yesterday, so I had to get a haircut the night prior. I make enough money to enjoy the best services, which is why I always go to Great Clips. When the professional stylist began cutting my hair, I knew immediately from the stink of her hands and breath that she was a cigarette smoker. I don't know how long before my cut she smoked, but she stunk like a Rwandan trash fire. I can't believe that I used to subject my clients and highly paid escorts to that disgusting, deathly stench. I hope I never smoke again. I recommend that you quit, because I can guarantee you that your co-workers at Arby's hate the smell of you. Ever wonder why you've never gotten that assistant manager position? Yeah, it might be because you smell like a orphanage fire. Get yourself cleaned up.

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

But I like the smell of an orphanage fire. The dirty shoeless feet and the desperation really add something to the essence that you don't get at a normal fire. It's why I set most of my fires at orphanages. It's also why the state doesn't allow me to run orphanages anymore. The last 3 burned down for some reason.

I'm familiar with all of Phil's work, though I wish I wasn't. He lived up the street from me when he was a young man. I was twenty-five, working at a cannery, wandering aimlessly, drinking pint after pint every night to put myself to sleep. Well, I'm not proud to say this, but one drunken night, a young Phil Collins seduced me in the shed behind his parent's house. When it was over, I ran down to the sea and sat in the cold water for hours, trying to wash the fingerprints from the scene of the crime, my asshole. Every time I'd see him riding his bike after that, he'd spread his index and middle fingers and then flick his tongue at the crux where they met. I wasn't sure what it meant but it was horrifying.

Then the guy has the tenacity to write "In the Air Tonight." Listening to the lyrics just about drove me mad because he'd put himself in the place of victim and me in the place of predator. I bought tickets to one of his live shows, front row, with the sole purpose of confronting him. I was carjacked on the way to the arena, so I arrived late. When Phil looked down into the crowd and saw me, he gave a wry smile and then launched into that horrific, tormenting rock ballad. HOLD ON. Christ, I can still hear him shouting that at me as he plowed me from behind and I strained to keep hold of the lawnmower's handle. I couldn't take it anymore and had a breakdown.

Phil ordered his security thugs to forcibly remove me. They beat me near half dead before tossing me unconscious in the parking lot. When I came to, I learned that he'd cooked up this story about spotting his molester in the crowd and having him arrested. More good publicity for Phil; pain and anguish for me.

I would kill that bastard if I could.

gravebayne2: A mother, her friend and two children were left fuming on a Toronto ferry when a crewman lit up and filled the air with cigarette smoke.

FILLED ALL THE AIR IN EXISTENCE WITH SMOKE!

seriously the dude is smoking outside just chilling. sometimes people complain just to start trouble. too bad it isn't like the olden days where you could just tell them to shut up or you'd make em walk the plank...or something.


Subby's overreaction aside, smokers might think that smoke magically and mysteriously disappears when you're outside but it doesn't. It's not "complaining just to start trouble" when it does, indeed, annoy the fark out of us who dislike being around smoke, particularly when you're trapped in a confined area which is supposed to be non-smoking.

I no longer smoke, don't like people smoking in my house or near me in a restaurant etc,

I quit in 2000, and even that doesn't bother me anymore. Being constantly surrounded by it would start my asthma up again, but an occasional smoker is fine.

Now if we could only do something about all those internal combustion engines...


but I have no problem with anyone smoking out doors.

Outdoors! Where all the smoky CARS are! I'll bet if all the smokers in Lexington were to gather at Centre Point and smoke at the same time it would produce less airway annoyance across the street than all the cars driving by on Main do during that event.


And I hate people who are always on a 24/7 anti smoking campaign.

Agreed. They're worse than missionaries.


Like this guy who regularly waits at the same bus stop as I do and he's always hollering at people about smoking at the bus stop. I can't wait for the day when someone cock punches the prick.

And then blows cigarette smoke in his face.

I wonder whether these anti-smokers walk, run, skateboard or ride bikes everywhere they go. Or do they contribute to air pollution?

Not trying to be the anti-smoking nazi here, but way more people do die from lung cancer each year than nuclear weapons have killed in all of eternity. Children rarely die in firearm accidents. In fact, more children died from respiratory disease in 2009 (the latest year that the CDC's chart goes up to) than from firearm homicides.

PS. your friend keeps going because she gets banged by that dude, that's a post-coital smoke. Which is also why he's not looking at you two.

Come to your senses man, that was no simple improvised explosive device, that was a CIGARETTE! We know from the media that cigarettes are more dangerous than grizzly bears and twice as likely to attack you suddenly when you are not looking.

On the bright side, cigarette smoke is only one of a dozen life shortening substances found in the air. One of the most deadly is the powerful oxidizing agent known as O2. This odorless tasteless gas shortens your life with every breath. Everyone who breaths o2 will die.

Chances are there were "NO SMOKING" signs posted, there are on the Lake Champlain ferries.

Sure, she could have asked the guy to put out his butt since the smoke was probably blowing down the whole length of the deck since he was in the bow, but, he probably would have replied with a big F.O. as most of the smoker in this thread have indicated.

That's exactly what the smoker just outside an open door (two feet outside, directly in front of the door) did to me when I politely suggested he move away from the open door , or just close it. I got an F.O. for my trouble. I said to my wife, loud enough for him to hear, "that's why people hate smokers".

Reminds me of working as a campus policeman on the night shift. "There's a man smoking in the parking garage." "OK, and? Was he breaking into a car or something?" "No, not that, he was smoking and that's not allowed anywhere on campus." "Sure, by code, but we have to pick our battles a bit and not hammer down on minor violations all shift. He's in a parking garage, where people already run car engines, and that's way worse for your health than secondhand smoke." "So you're not going to do anything about it?" "Nope, on the night shift, we're short staffed. If I burn time on this guy having a good burn in the garage, I'm not available for another, more serious call until I'm done dealing with him. And then I gotta stay awake during the day shift to go downtown to the courthouse to file my tickets, and again when the guy fights prosecution in court. It's not worth my time, nor is it in the best interest of the department, to bother." "But isn't your job to enforce the law?" "Yes, but again, public safety is the factor here. It's the middle of the night, I can see him from here, he's smoking a cigarette alone in an empty parking garage away from everyone. I could be writing him up, but when I'm doing that, I'm not on patrol, I'm not jumpstarting stranded cars, and I'm not ensuring buildings are secure for the night. All of these are higher priorities than a $40 smoking violation."

Her children try to save her, but since they've been secret smokers since they were very young, ("Mommy said it was bad--we have to try it!"), they're too puny to pull her 300-pound ass from the rough seas. One of her kids doesn't even notice she's gone, because he ran ahead to try and grab a quick smoke before they get to the parking lot. He's the oldest, and with his help they probably could have saved her, but alas! she is gone under the waves. Another brave crusader felled, brought down by addiction and others' selfish desires.

Be fair. This thread left "the lady in TFA is an asshat" way behind and plunged headlong into "non-smokers are all nosy pussies and smoking doesn't hurt anybody". Seriously, you can't reason with a smoker about what smoking does to them or to other people. It's like they're addicts or something.

What an inconsiderate bastard. Tobacco is an evil, violent killer, just waiting for you to turn your back so it can rape you and everyone you love. No one should ever smoke it, ever.

Now, if he'd been smoking pot, that would have been OK, because everyone knows pot smoke has never ever harmed or even irritated anyone because it is made from unicorn farts and fairy hair.

Eh, there was nothing to be gained by debating with him. I'd already checked out of the room and was headed to the car. Pretty much the same with many of the people contributing to this thread, the guy had no grasp of reality.

They would be helping themselves if they pulled their heads out of their asses and realized that around 80% of people don't smoke and many of them really do hate the smell. If enough of them get pissed, laws get passed restricting when and where smokers can smoke. So I guess, keep being retarded, smokers.

And FWIW, the smell of cigarette smoke outside is farking awesome. Seriously. Walking past a restaurant patio and catching a whiff of someone's cig is almost enough to make me want to light up.

Smoke smell in clothes and hair, OTOH, is disgusting.

That's why people should smoke outside. And everybody else should get over it. You're inhaling many times more harmful fumes from auto exhaust and industrial sources every day than all the smokers in America could ever generate.

This is an admission by her that her intent was to cause him to get fired and thus her intent was to cause harm to this person. This guy has to get a lawyer and sue her for harassment.

Furthermore, this incident proves the need for unions who protect people from bosses that would fire them for minor indiscretions, as Jaime Brooks obviously would.
