As a lifelong nonsmoker, I’ve noticed that smokers have generally become a lot more sensitive to us.
More people ask before they light up and graciously take no for an answer.
2 years ago,when my ashen, bald wife would walk into a restaurant or approach the “smoker’s exile” spots near the doorways of smoke-prohibited buildings, everyone would put 'em out without any prompting.
It took years, but smokers have finally been educated to show us our due respect. Which is why I Pit the idiots at Smoke-free Nebraska who supposedly speak for me and other nonsmokers for these abominable Omaha billboards.
The title of the billboards is “I’m sick of the smoke” and they feature dour, scolding, crabby people. To be PC, there are crabby Hispanic women with babies ( In both English and Spanish)crabby blacks, priggish whites ( Haven’t seen any scowling Asians or American Indians, though).
What the Hell are these people trying to do? Alienate smokers and make them feel that nothing they do pleases us; and so give them the attitude of fuck 'em and smoke whatever you want whenever you want?

Stop the negativity! We’ve won. Let’s be magnanimous in our victory!
You Smoke-Free Nebraska idiots are courting backlash! Cut it Out! I’m sick of “I’m Sick Of The Smoke!” You assholes not only deserve to lose your tax exemption, you deserve to pay double taxes the rest of your miserable lives!
