    Indeed.
    I'm not sure if my boss would say yes or not, I suspect he'd take the easy answer and say 'no' and I wouldn't press him on it.

    So currently I vape at my desk, bought my spare PT in to work and plugged it in last week, I'm not quite chain vaping, but pretty close to it.

    Everyone else in the office knows I vape, and I vape off a bat wherever I am if the main boss isn't in sight.

    Noone cares, so far as I know, noone has complained, at least, so I'm hoping when the big boss figures it out he'll be cool, and I suspect he will, seeing as it doesn't bother anyone.

    Of course, I still go outside on smoke breaks to stretch my muscles (desk job) and vape outside and catch up with the sales guys (I program the site, so talking to the sales on smoke breaks really helps me do my job better)

    But yeah, if anyone isn't vaping inside at work, and hasn't asked, go ahead and ask, worse that can happen is they say 'no' and nothing changes. On the other hand, if they say yes, you'll end up educating a lot more people that vaping is harmless to others, and an educated public means better results when it comes to government passing laws, right?

    I work in IT and they shove us off into our own little corner office. I have some privacy, but I already discussed it with my boss and it's kosher with him. So I toot away all day on my PV, just have to be careful if other people come in.

    If you stealth vape in the bathroom stall, do you:

    A) stand and vape
    B) pull your pants down, sit on the pottie and vape
    C) sit on pottie with pants up and vape

    Inquiry minds want to know! =)

    I vape in my cube at work pretty much all day long - and so do about 4 other ex-smokers. The boss is not a smoker or vaper, but absolutely loves it since we never leave for smoke breaks anymore.

    Best case scenario: Convert your boss from analogs to digi's. Worked great for me

    Meetings are much more enjoyable these days. Especially when the projector is fired up. Giant plumes of vapor rolling past the light beam can be hilarious! One of our coworkers (an ex smoker) that is frequently in attendance says it reminds him of meetings from the 70's, heheh!

    I just vape, everywhere. It's legal, it's 99% water vapor, it doesn't smell. I don't see a downside. If anybody asks, I explain to them what it is, give them a V4L card, make sure their satisfied and go on my way. So far it hasn't been an issue.

    I vape all over the workplace - in the office, outside by the planes (work at the airport, obviously), in the warehouse. My boss is cool with it - in fact he asked me for the V4L website so he could get one for his Aunt. Heh, another convert hopefully ..

    Everyone at work who I have explained this thing to, smokers and non-smokers alike, assumes that I can use it indoors. Today I was in an all-day meeting, big room-full of folks. I'd vape every so often, and just hold it in so I wouldn't be billowing vapor. Nobody batted an eye.

    Want to stealth vape at work? Slowly exhale through a wet paper towel. You're welcome.
