    There is a reason why the gov has to force people to wear a seat belt. same applies here.
    do not worry, thou shalt be regulated soon. The law of inevitability.

    Good thing she didn't try that with an analog ....

    I think you're perfectly fine confronting the person. I also agree these attitudes will be what hammers us all back into analogs when vaping ends up completely banned, because some just won't give a little bit. The argument of not knowing the person is just plain childish, and completely highlights the epidemic of societies me me me all about me mentality. Now I'm not suggesting we shouldn't be allowed to enjoy our own endulgences, but I can't walk down the street drinking a beer. There is a place for that behavior. I can't drive my jacked up 4x4 in my neighbors yard even though it would be a great time. (he has a huge fueld) there are places for me to that. I can't ride my motorcycle down the sidewalk or a narrow shoulder because it fits and it's faster. I'm also not saying we all just need to get along, or that we need to worry about everyone around us, but come on. Just a little respect can prevent so much other bs. Look at warning labels since they've been brought up. McDonald's coffee is hot... Duh... Because of stupid people with the lacking of comments since, we have a label warnings contents are hot. Look at desiccant packages in electronics. How many helmet wearing crayon toting people actually thought they got a candy surprise with their new clock radio? Now a label warning not to eat. Really? My point is, I think same as OP, if you can't smoke there, don't vape there. Period.

    If you feel the need to hide something from others eyes then perhaps you shouldn't be doing it. By trying to hide it would mean that you know it is wrong to do whatever it is in the venue or situation you are in. Would you sit in the pew on a Sunday morning while your preacher was giving his sermon and blow large clouds of vapor, smoke or otherwise, no, why? Because it is disrespectful not only to the preacher but also those trying to enjoy their Sunday morning at church. And no I don't go to church but would still be respectful to others if I did.

    It's a good thing infants aren't actually very fragile or we'd have died out long ago. When I had my first kid, I was very paranoid about everything. By the time I had my 3rd I was over it. We know what's in vapor - it's nicotine, PG, VG, and flavorings. Unless you're going to keep them away from fog machines and candy until they are 18, plus anything in the nightshade family, I don't think you need to worry about it. There is probably more artificial flavoring and coloring in Pedialyte or baby Tylenol than there is in exhaled vapor.

    That said what she did probably wasn't the wisest considering the political climate, but I personally would not have flipped out on her.

    Wait, so your answer to keep vaping from being banned everywhere smoking is banned is to ban vaping everywhere smoking is banned??? What????
    Good job at doublethink, Wilson.

    Do you say something to people for using inhalers of any kind? They are also exhaling something. Who knows what someone exhaling Advair all over your kids would do.

    I will give you that she was stupid, to stealth puff but not stealth blow is backwards. I was in the ER puffing without firing just to get flavor and nobody said anything.

    I have no problem vaping around kids. Although when vaping around non-smokers I keep the clouds down and if I need to make clouds I step aside.
    The claims of second hand smoke were a complete lie so the thought that second hand vapor is a problem is laughable. If you're worried about vapor being a danger you probably shouldn't have your kids in a medical facility during flu season (or any other time of the year).
    Funny I have the opposite story with people who had a herd of germ ridden kids trying to make me sick at my doctor's office. Luckily my immune system is not only attacking me this year but quickly attacking every disease I get exposed to and I only felt sick for a few hours. At no time did I think that it was my place to inform them of their inconsideration of others and how their germ factories could end up killing one of us old people in the office.

    I must have missed out where the OP flipped out. Farther into the thread we go the more the story grows. Wonder why antz disinformation gets footholds so easily.

    I think that would solve almost every argument about vaping.

    Either go somewhere else just long enough to get a vape in, or don't get caught. Problem solved.

    I may have to submit that the lady in question may indeed still see it fit to vape in church. IMO it is a matter of two things. The first is discretion. Discretion isn't a quantified, universal value. It will be different for just about everyone. Oddly enough, this lady either seemed to think there was no reason not to do this, or she just didn't care.

    This illustrates the second matter, which is consideration. Not everyone was raised to appreciate consideration of others. Clearly I don't know this lady and she may be one heck of a person, but in this instance she was either being ignorant, or inconsiderate. I would have had to say something to her, if for no other reason than to find out which.

    If the OP was put off by this (being a vaper mind you), what must the average person think while seeing the same thing?
