rant

I understand you smokers have an addiction and you need your nicotine fix, but please have some consideration and exhale completely BEFORE getting on the bus/entering the building. Breathing out a trail of smoke as you come in is quite obnoxious for us non-smokers.

It sounds even beyond obnoxious---it sounds down right passive agressive.

I agree 100% with you! Also, it seems as if I am always getting behind people on the sidewalks, exhaling smoke as they are walking down the street in front of me...(yuck).

i rarely smell smoke here in seattle but when i do i'm mostly irritated. it's odd because when i'm in france i rarely smell the smoke unless it's obvious. maybe it doesn't bother me as much because i'm there on holiday and not focusing on that aspect of the area.

I also tend to end up behind people who are smoking as they walk. But I guess in Paris, they're all over.

Function - if you take the metro and visit more touristy places, you probably don't get it much. I think it's more of an issue on the bus and in office buildings (people entering after a smoke break). Be happy you haven't had this problem!
