Not In Public, Please

I have a minor asthma. Nothing too bad, I have to use medication only once or twice monthly. Still, it's difficult to breath in a relatively small, closed space (a buss or restaurant, for example) where someone is smoking or has recently smoked. If I don't panic and concentrate on breathing I'm cool, but what about the people whose condition is worse?

I have nothing against smoking in general, I won't start a rant about healthy lifestyle, not here or in real life. Even so, there is time and place for everything. In restaurants, workplaces and some other public buildings there is nowadays a perfectly fine spots for smokers and non-smokers. It actually ****** me of when I see someone smoking in a place where it is clearly marked forbidden.

A typical scenery is a teenage boy, 15 or so, puffing away in a buss with a defiant look of 'see if I care what you think.'

It's not about your rights do what you want, it's about other's right to breath! Even people with perfectly fine lungs are bothered because you smell. Argh!

That's todays rant. Thank you for reading.
