I work at Ollies. I am sick of my co-workers smoking outside. Just look the next time you pass Ollies skuzzy employees outside smoking. Why would anyone hire a smoker? It is not fair for those of us who do not smoke. Keep your nasty habits at home.

Higher Health Insurance Premiums

More Sick Days

More lower class people smoke

Older people walking in the smoke to get inside

Bad image for children

They Smell

Poor Image on the Business

More down time running outside to smoking when they could be stocking, bringing buggies in or other stuff

Just do not hire them.

You cannot smoke in a hospital why a business where many of us hate smoking the the wast of time it causes.

Smoking is legal if done within area specified by law. Smokers have just as much right to earn a living as anyone else. What IS illegal, is discriminating in hiring practices. As long as growing tobacco and using tobacco are legal in this country, stay out of other peoples lives! It's your kind who believe they can regulate other peoples personal lives who are ruining this country. I want YOU, and the damn GOVERNMENT, out of my life!!! And there are plenty of others who feel the same way. Same goes for mandatory seat belt laws, mandatory helmet laws for motorcycles, and every other thing you people want to legislate. Personal FREEDOM is being taken away from ALL of us!! Once they legislate all the things YOU don't want out of existence, then they'll go after something you DO want!! WAKE UP!!! And before you go calling me a "right-wing" nut, I am a Libertarian constitutionalist who believes in personal freedom as well as personal responsibility.

My two best friends smoke. To be honest I have found the smokers to be better people, more easy going, and more sociable. Why not stop being so mean, leave people alone, and try to just be a little more understanding.

I don't smoke but have found my smoker buddies to be some of the best people around.

Let's focus on more important things in this dirty little town.

I am proud to hang with the smokers.:)

I think there should be laws on the non smokers. They are the worst at tipping. They have way to many illness that drive up health care costs. They take way too many breaks and blame it on being tired and the government makes them do it. They are taking good jobs away from the smokers. They have way to many addictions such as, soda, tea, beer, coffee, junk food, buying every what not and nic knack they can collect. Non smokers are classless and mostly poor. That is because they spend so much money on their various addictions and frivolous collections of interest. Many are fat too but that goes back to all the food and drink addictions. We need more laws banning all non smokers from society! Yuck! those non smokers.

It is illegal to discriminate in hiring practices but only sex, color, religion, creed, or national origin. Companies have the right to not hire on the basis of smoking or other reasons as long as previously mentioned are not reasons for not hiring and several companies have already established that policy. Some even make smokers pay more for health insurance and give random tests to see if their employees are smoking.

Do you Drink ? are you Fat ? Skinny ? a Whore ? sleep around with the same gender ? Bi? Homosexual ? a female ? a male ? like dogs ? like cats ? drive a car? drive a truck ? walk ? eat ? sleep ? etc etc etc etc etc etc etc....

People have the right to do what they do...IF you do not like smokers LEAVE...I for one do not like whining co workers who complain about everyone else's habits and forget their own nasty ones they expect people to overlook.....

No I am not a smoker, nor do I drink, nor am I a homosexual and nor do I whine about others rights, I drive a car and truck, I walk, I eat, I am not fat but I am not skinny, and No I do not like whores, and I do sleep, and on occasion I complain to, but mostly about people who complain about others.

Stop whining and or get out .

Boy a cigarette after sex is the icing on the cake. A pleasure you non smoking people would never know anything about. They sure taste good right after a hearty meal of steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn bread, and a big ole glass of milk to wash it all down. I don't know why people think smokers stink. I could name quite a few non smokers who smell really bad. Do non smokers take a bath or know about deodorant? You can tell by the smell some people have animals. I work with a few who have dogs and man they smell like a kennel. Sure glad I smoke because I get to go outside for a few minutes smoking to get away from that smell. I can only imagine how stinky their home must be. There are a few who have cats and some days I'm not sure which one is worse, the dog smell or the cat smell. Oh and they have all that hair from the animals all over their clothes. Yuck!

I dont have an issue with smoking outside or even giving them a quick 5 min. for a cigarette when they need it. I take issue with coworkers who take multiple 20 minute 30 minute breaks in which time I have had to do their work it makes me mad. Some smokers and non smokers can be good or bad to work with. The non smoker should be just as intitaled to a quick 5 minute break to grab soda or whatever too tho.

Keep in mind when your sitting idle your not working either. How much are you really getting done? It seems you are busy keeping tabs on the smokers when they go out for a break and possibly not getting your work done. Don't forget smokers and non smokers visit that store and buy things that keep prejudice people like you in a job. When it comes to making money I could care less if they smoke or do not smoke. I want them buying what I got to sell!!!!

Reasons given by Anti-smoking against smoking include "more LOWER CLASS PEOPLE" who smoke.

Well, La-de-da!

Anti-smoking must be, by inference, a higher class person than the likes of the following who smoke or did smoke:

Winston Churchill
Marylyn Monroe
Coco Chanel
John F. Kennedy
Jack Nicholson
Barack Obama
Madonna
Brad Pitt
Albert Einstein
and a multitide of others.

This is what happens when education is about indoctrination into social agendas instead of about learning.

Keep in mind people can be addicted to most anything.

Why don't we try being just a little less judgmental. I am not from Beckley yet have met some of the meanest most broken depressed people I have ever encountered.

Get a life and try to help someone rather than breaking them down.

Why not practice a little more kindness, forgiveness, compassion, love, rather than spewing your hate and miserable thinking?
