    I work in a call center, and I usually go vape out back with all the smokers during my breaks. I wouldn't dare vape inside, especially since it's not allowed and security watches over the place like a hawk.

    Usually they don't care about people vaping near the doors though, but smokers they do... and with the security camera, one day, when I had a white iTaste VV and one of the kanger mini tanks (I forget what it was called), I guess since it was white, long and thin they thought it was a cigarette so someone told me over the loudspeaker to stop. :/

    my social life at work though is talking with the smokers and vapers.

    I wait tables in a restaurant where my GM vapes so vaping at work is great for me because I can get a quick hit outside or downstairs when I am getting buckets of ice without a problem. My restaurant owners prohibit servers from smoking cigs before or during the shift so vaping allows me to get my nicotine fix and a stress relief without smelling like smoke and has helped me quit smoking cigarettes which has vastly improved my health! Sometimes other employees jest with me but I think it's because they want to smoke cigs and can't haha!

    Vaping inside is no problemo at my work. It's a small company, and I have my own office (with a ceiling fan). I'm not much of a cloudchaser, but I've chucked clouds at my desk before without complaints.

    I still sometimes take it outside though, just because sitting for ~8 hours can get a little rough on my bum.

    My company recently moved locations (to somewhere where the suits can watch us better), but while in the old location, I would use my Nautilus, and iStick 50w (for battery stamina) usually vaping on a vanilla custard. I got compliments all the time about how good the office smelled. Management there was supportive, and okay with it because I always put on a show with tricks during boring conference calls :p

    Now at the new building, we aren't even allowed to talk socially. I don't even dare try to vape. I step outside, and take a walk around the building. I got some other coworkers interested in vaping too, and that alone is worth the sacrifice.

    I am a florist at a grocery store where it is not allowed inside but no problem outside or if I get busy I can sneak a puff in our walk in cooler storage or the bathroom stall. There are other employees that vape and they sometimes sneak a puff in the back room, but for the most part we congregate outside with the smokers. When I first started vaping it was relatively new and I worked in an office where they said no to vaping inside. I got a few people in the next office into vaping and their boss let them vape at their desk as long as it didn't bother anyone else. That office was just happy for anything to help their employees get off of cigarettes. It depends on where you work as to what is allowed :)

    Our office is really chill anyway so I've never had any problems with vaping. I'm up front and I'm not in eyesight of anyone anyway. They all know I vape and don't care. I was worried at first but they were surprisingly supportive and ask me all the time what new flavors I have lol.

    I'm a shipwright and at the shipyard I work at I'm allowed to vape everywhere. On board of yachts, in the wood shop, it doesn't matter. Some of my co-workers still smoke and they think it's unfair I don't have to go outside :D

    I do vending machines at a community college, so I pretty much vape wherever I want except in the buildings. Police chief there always says he's going to give me a ticket (jokingly).

    I noticed as a server, my tips went up when I no longer reeked of the stinkies. I don't vape in the kitchen or up front, but i can pop outside for a few puffs while I wait for my food to come up, or gettin stuff from the fridge. Which has a convenient 45 sec walk out side to get too.

    Usually try to go outside, just to get some fresh air and sunshine along with a few drags.

    My work treats vaping the same as smoking, infact where I work you're not even allowed to carry cigarettes or vaping stuff into the plant. On breaks or w/e we all just smoke/vape in the designated smoking area. My Co-operator and me will usually blow some clouds out while we're outside.
