(AP News)   You're a non-smoker. You tell some dude who is smoking that he should stop, cuz he's sitting in a no-smoking area of the train station. He refuses. What do? Why, clobber him in the face with a wooden fence post, of course   (apnews.com) divider line

Those elderly Germans certainly come prepared.

81 year old guy had a fence post sitting around, and hit a 61-year old smoker after asking the 61 year old to put out the lit cigarette.

Sorry, can you be more specific about who's the bad guy here?
 
2019-03-25 05:06:33 PM  
Sounds like the smoker got off lightly.

This should be a fun thread to watch.  How many posts until someone compares smokers to Nazi's so they can somehow justify assault?
 
2019-03-25 05:07:55 PM  
If anything, I marvel at the restraint of the non-smoker.

Well thanks for trying to make smokers seem like the oppressed ones. But how hard is it to walk to an area of the train station (or outside the train station) where smoking is allowed? This person did very wrong by assaulting the smoker, but the smoker did less wrong but still wrong by smoking in an area not designated for it. I don't want to inhale smokers fumes myself, I like whatever fresh air we have left on this planet.

Ya got a point, but I don't think they handed my people cartons of Lucky's saying "Smoke up, Jakob!"

Action occurred in Berlin, Germany.  One gentleman was eighty-one years old... the one with a fence post.  The other is sixty-one.

Simple math well tell you that there is, at most, one Natzi in the story.

Add that to the list of why smoking is bad.

Swing away old man. This isn't 'Nam, there are rules.
 
2019-03-25 05:13:37 PM  
I have always heard that smoking is bad for you. I guess this proves it.
 
2019-03-25 05:13:42 PM  
soo, fence posts will be regulated.
 
2019-03-25 05:13:47 PM  
Sounds like they're both assholes and they've both been removed from the train station.  Win/win.
 
2019-03-25 05:13:55 PM  
As a smoker, I'm not a dick to non-smokers. I'm willing to get up and move a few steps and sit down somewhere else if asked.
This is probably why no one has whacked me with anything and why I can jump salty if anyone hassles me when I'm in the right section.

Having recently received another diagnosis almost certainly linked to the heavy smoking adults did during my childhood, I cannot bring myself to condemn fence-post wielder at the moment. Maybe tomorrow I'll feel more forgiving.

Ditto.

The train station near me, it's almost like smokers take pride in smoking on the platform next to all the no smoking signs....

/But don't call them addicts.  They don't like that even though they puff away right up till the train opens the doors and then will immediately light up after getting off the train (while still on the platform).
 
2019-03-25 05:18:30 PM  
Put the smoker in a small room with a hobo who hasn't washed in months, and somebody with uncontrollable flatulence. Maybe he'll figure it out somehow.
 
2019-03-25 05:18:49 PM  
I smoked for years before my self-respect caught on.

Screw forgiveness. All that is left is the sweet, cold dish of revenge.

I grew up with a parent who smoked two packs a day for most of my childhood. Whenever we drove anywhere, he would chain-smoke, and only crack the driver's-side window about 1cm, because any more would decrease our fuel efficiency.

To this day, when I catch even a little bit of second-hand smoke as I'm walking along the sidewalk, it causes my throat to involuntarily close up, which is uncomfortable almost to the point of being painful, even if just for a split second. It's effectively like getting a light smack in the face.

I don't condone violence, but I also won't pretend that I haven't fantasized about punching smokers -- walking in front of me -- squarely in the back of their heads.

Easier response- take the cigarette and exstinguish it.  If he takes out another, go find a fire extinguisher.

Been there, got the yellowed stinking t-shirt. Did you have to deal with a full ashtray next to the butter dish? I will admit that the cig butt floating in the toilet was a great opportunity to play "enemy submarine caught on the surface by the fighter plane" while urinating

All you have to do is outlive/outrun them.  Both easily accomplished.
