vaping publicly. The stealth vaper isnt answering or refuting statements like those.Theyre too busy trying (and usually failing miserably to be stealthy) Personally they remind me (and probably others as well) of illicit drug users and that alone can cause quite a bit of fear and mistrust.
On the opposite side of this are the vapers who take delight in blowing plumes of vapor everywhere regardless of the situation or who is present. Freedom to vape has to be tempered with common sense, courtesy and respect for others.
I dont vape while pumping gas for example because shorts do happen and because Im trying to consider others feeling and reactions. Even if its only a small chance that something can wrong, I have no right to take a chance with their lives like that.
In short theres no need to hide but theres no reason to be a douchebag about it either.
