My sister and I went to dinner and a movie recently and a friend of hers, originally from England, but now in the Netherlands, was in town and came with us. After the movie we went to a bar for some beers. He was a smoker but had no cigarettes. So I said, “Just bum one off that guy there.” He refused. So I did it for him. He was amazed that in America people do that. I was amazed that anywhere else people don’t. From what I’ve seen, I wouldn’t be suprised if a Klansman bummed a smoke to a five-percenter or vice-versa. I thought smoke bumming was the great equalizer.
So tell me: do people bum smokes where you’re from? And where are you from? Is this an “American thing”?
