vaping argument. Example:
Seriously? Let's just look at this with some semblance of critical thinking. Any time you put the word "may" in front of the phrase "in fact" EVERYONE's BS alarms should go off. It is impossible for anyone to prove that vaped exhaled breathe could be beneficial. This is a ridiculous assertion and should be classified as the 'misinformation' we so vehemently decry.Originally Posted by DrMa
Whether your other coworkers care or not, she cares. You are exposing her to something she is given little choice to avoid. She has to work in that area of the office to make her living. You can still go outside for your fix. Problem solved.
You have the freedom to be inconsiderate, but that doesn't mean you should exercise that freedom.

vaping and come right up on us or otherwise contrive to have a reason to complain. It's happened to me over and over and over again, in places where vaping is allowed and outside in areas where people are allowed to smoke. BTW, I DID start vaping to quit smoking, 14 months ago, and it worked. I don't impose my vaping on anyone, but they have chosen to impose their nasty attitudes on me for it as soon as they see me doing it when they could have MORE easily left me alone. NO, they had to come right up on me and get nasty with me about it... because they are nasty people and they need an excuse to get all over someone and be nasty to them.

The woman stuck in an office and being exposed to someone else's vapor is not getting to make the choice.
And good for you for quitting smoking. That's super. I don't think your anecdote really applies in this case. I remember seeing your original posting about this event- It seems to have really upset you. Here's a gift, I hope you feel better-

I'm not bashing a vaper. I think he should vape. Just outside where it won't bother his coworker. Wouldn't you have been happier if the person complaining to you had been more considerate?
Being considerate of others. That is what I'm advocating. Your attempt to twist it into a bash of another vaper is just that ... twisted.

In its most reduced form -
Vaping on the job is Theft of company time. Nothing to do with you or your co-workers wants. You were both hired to perform a function profitable to the company and any personal activities on the clock are cutting into that profit.
How's that for reality.
I work for a very hard line company with a huge legal team that works to one end - Profitability above all else.
if you have a unique problem it is up to you to deal with it.
it is not my problem.
it is not societies problem.
it is not the governments problem.
it is your problem.
your problem x 3500,000,000 millions of peoples problems is squat.
so just stay home with your therapy animal.
i am not being harsh.
these small obscure populations with their unique problems have been jerking around every one for to long.
