Just let the smokers kill themselves in peace.

That's right, freedom of choice!  The only way to live Thumbs Up

    why not post a warning sign on the door as they do with stores that have microwave.  If you are suppose to stay away from smoke. Don't buy your gas there or tickets for that matter.  Ok.. take away the store's abiltiy to sell tickets... demand the pumps be self pay...

    We have customers who drive up and call us on their cell phones to deliver their tickets to the car, since they don't want to drag out the wheel chair and use the accessible equipment we provide.

    Oh well.. I don't mind helping others ....

    Sign Sign, everywhere a sign! 

    Tea's such a nice lady.

      If second hand smoke is as dangerous as some people think it is, then Texas should use cigarettes to execute their death row inmates.

      I'll never know, i get all my smoke first hand! Cheers

        Asthma Triggers:

        Infections, usually those caused by a virus (e.g. colds or flu)

        Allergens, most commonly from house dust mites, pets or pollen

        Exercise, especially in cold weather

        Emotions, such as excitement, fear or anger

        Irritants, such as air pollution, smoke

        Food additives, such as tartrazine (an artificial food colouring), or food allergens, such as peanuts (sensitised or allergic individuals can have a very severe allergic reaction).

        Certain medications - some people may be allergic to some drugs (e.g. aspirin).

        According to the list that can cause an asthma attack this man wouldn't be able to buy a ticket even if the booth was out in the great out doors!

        This is why I said it was Unreal!!! Someone else said this man has too much time on his hands and I agree!

        Another fact is that 22 percent of people with asthma Smoke Cigarettes! Some people are so concerned about their own rights that they forget that everyone else has the same rights as they do.

        I have severe allergic reactions to perfume and cologne. If I stand one foot from a person with it on, I instantly can not breathe, fill with mucous, get runny eyes, nose, and sneeze. This does not mean people shouldn't be able to ware perfume or cologne in public, because they have the right to do so. I don't complain, I just move away from the person.

        The majority of the mini stores in PA do not allow smoking anyway, and no grocery stores here allow it, but the majority of Big grocery stores sale lottery. Maybe the man should move to PA and get his tickets while he grocery shops and hope he don't get any air pollution along they way.

          Me, too.  Nothing like good old first hand smoke first thing in the morning (right after my coughing attack!).

          My best friend smokes cigars.  We have been golfing buddies for almost 40 years now.  If he doesn't light up before the first green, I will have a lousy day on the course.
