Eric that's daft, well done.

No, I just speak for me, and I`ve heard plenty of ex-work mate smokers complaining that they now have to go outside for a smoke.

Every town center you walk round is littered with take away cartons, plastic bags, chewing gum, Mars Bar wrappers, Coca Cola cans etc.

Are you denying it's you?

Give them their own little smoking room with a pint and an ashtray and they won't make a mess or bother anyone! Just like the good old days!

Anyway, doesn't it give you a warm glow seeing how the smokers are saving you all that extra income tax?

VAT- that's nothing.Try smokers tax!

The only thing that used to give me the hump was that when I was working, the smokers used to slope off for a fag.....leaving those who didn't smoke to carry on looking after the patients.....so they were taking extra (paid for) breaks.

That used to wind me up also. Fortunately, no smokers where I am now, but if there were, they could smoke on official breaks only.

Well, I have to say that those smokers who disappeared every once in a while were monitored, and they were warned to cut back on these unofficial breaks......some opted to have nicotine patches while they were working.

A non smoker once asked me about the time I spent stood in the cold smoking.
I pointed out that I'd just watched them chatting for over half an hour, stood in a warm office- and they still weren't working.
We all need a break, whether it's for a smoke or just a chat.

In my job, patients came first.....before recognised official breaks.
If a patient required looking after, then that always came first....no,question!
If there were times when we were quiet(and these were not often) then I could always find plenty of things to do......I didn't mind the staff chatting while they were unpacking and checking the clean linen.
