    Has anyone experienced hassles in pubs (etc.) with vaping? I could imagine complaints from other patrons insisting they hate "the smell" (complete with nose holding and hand flailing:rolleyes:) as well as overzealous owners, managers and landlords insisting that it is "smoking", not wanting to try and actually listen and think and refusing the use of vapes full-stop.

    Anything like that happen to you? How do you deal with the enevitable tuts, scorn, remarks and scowls?

    Does anyone have a card on them with the law as it stands and descriptions of what you are doing? I have heard of people carrying these.

    Have any of you heard your local 'Peggy Mitchell' crying "...Go on, gerr out! Gerr outta my pub!..."

    I must say that I had my first public vape yesterday at the Reindeer. The barkeep was skeptical but asked the landlord if I could use one of those "new cigarette things". At first he said he didn't want to get into trouble and then I explained what it was all about but he said "it was still smoking" I told him that I gaurenteed him that it was a harmless vapour and not smoke at all, it was like the dry ice effect you get from those little novelty water features with a fog machine in it. That seemed to convince him and he walked away laughing.

    The barkeeper replied it could be a point of contention with others when he noticed semi-scowls from patrons although there was noting they could smell and I'm sure they couldn't figure out how I could handle the cigars tip after it "glowed red hot" LOL!

    All and all it was amusing and successful.
