Trapped In A Classroom With No Windows That Opened And Several Smokers

Back in college I was forced to endure an hour class with 3 or 4 people who smoked despite the fact that the "modern" building had classroom with windows that never could be opened. Like the person who has allergies to smoke and tobacco, I would get nosebleeds as the smoke broke small capillaries in my nose. It got so bad I would bleed over my notebook and textbook and had to be excused from the classroom to get my nosebleed under control. I had to arrange to take exams in that class in another classroom with another teacher. I always hated having to be forced to endure the ill-effects of second-hand smoke while I attended Seton Hall University in NJ for 4 years in the 1970s. I have never smoked and do whatever I can to avoid second-hand smoke, which IS a health hazard, especially to people like me who have asthma.

It's a shame that those of us who don't smoke have to suffer the repercussions of those who do! They just don't realize what they are doing to those around them!
