F*ck smokers! I wouldn't hire them and I'd tell them to their faces it's because they smoke.. and if they had a problem with that I'd tell 'em where to go.

Smokers = stupid, lazy/time-wasters, unhealthy and pathetic followers.

And I CANNOT STAND this mentality everyone has of letting smokers light up during work hours whenever they want, while others work! WTF is that?! "Oh yeh, I'm going for smoko".. and if the non-smoker decides to take 5 mins off with the smoker, he/she gets told to go back to work.

It seems you're a little on the delusional side. Even now I work with people who constantly step out to smoke while the non-smokers continue working. Nobody complained about having to breathe in filthy smoke all day to cover poor performance. The poor performers are the ones who need to take constant smoke breaks and when they come back they spend all their time wringing their hands over when they'll be able to get to the next smoke break.
If you want to talk about whiners then look at smokers. Such weaklings that every little thing has them whining "I need a smoke". How pathetic.
F-ing EXACTLY.

There is no such thing as an "intelligent smoker". "Pathetic follower", yes.

Just think about when most start smoking. When they are KIDS. When have you ever heard of an intelligent man taking up smoking at the age of 40? NEVER.

Not bloody likely as it doesn't run in my family. Even the life long smokers never had it. So what gawd awful disease are you going to die from? Don't bother to answer because I don't really give a RA.

Only ones throwing hissy fits and whining are the smokers.

You've confused "winning"(what non-smokers have done), with "whining" (what the loser smokers like yourself do all day long).

Still funny to laugh at, though. Please keep crying.

You seem to be the person who needs to have something in your mouth to suck on.

Poor nervous hand wringing pathetic smokers. Can't get through the slightest little upset without freaking out and braying for a bit of oral fixation.

You do realize that means that Maxie will be providing a dick for YOU to suck, right?

No, you probably don't.

Keep up being the voice of smokers. You represent them perfectly.

Stop making excuses, smokers. It makes you look bad, smell bad, etc.

Just quit. It's your choice but all things being equal, I'll hire a non-smoker over a smoker every time.

Every
Time.
