Disrespect
« on: July 21, 2012, 02:27:36 PM »
I know alot of you will remember the hard work that Steve & Pedro put in to make the garden area where the budgies are a nice area to sit & relax, & when people come to visit our lovely site when they get out of their cars its the first thing they see & first impressions count.
 In the mornings when most people are in bed both Pedro & myself get out of bed very early & make sure this area is clean & tidy, sometimes Pedro will come in his own time at weekends & water.
 Unfortunatly there are a group of people that dont seem to care that we work so hard & have no respect for the site, these people always seem to gather on a Friday around the ping pong table & toss cigarette ends all over the path & on the grass.
 Im not talking about 1 or 2 but 12 or more are scattered all over the place, there is an ashtray at the top of the ramp & a smoke room full of ashtrays a few feet further on but never get used.
 I can imagine people from off site hearing about Marks famous fish & chips on a Friday & coming to try them & having to walk through a carpet of dog ends on the floor before they reach the restaurant & wonder what they must think.
If this is you then you should be ashamed of yourselves no wonder the kids chuck all their rubbish everywhere if they see the adults doing it please show some respect for others & dispose of your rubbish properly !

Well said Chicco, in this day and age, smoking must rank among one of the most abhorrent and dangerous habits a human can adopt.
OK, so a person who smokes is only doing themselves harm, smokers may say and people should have the right to pursue
whatever lifestyle they want. I go along with that. But why do some smokers have to spoil others the pleasure of living
in a clean environment. Tossing a fag end anywhere other than in a proper place must be one of the most selfish and disgusting acts anyone can perform.

One of the consequences of the smoking ban is that you're surrounded by cigarette smoke outside now; especially bad in english pub gardens.
The  orange tree pots on the patio are used as ashtrays as well!

Colin,    Symptomatic with to days society unfortunately !!!!!!

In a report last year which looked at disposing all kinds of rubbish - It was disclosed that the filters on Cigarettes when just thrown down as litter - will take  approx   700 years to disappear ??? ?

The smokers ought to think on that - when they  just throw them anywhere ??? ?

I would have thought the Patio was a Non Smoking area -  It is a Public area- so how do cigarette end end up in the Pots     ??? ?

Just one deep thought -

We are all in the queue to get through  those Pearly Gates - and if the smokers by smoking want to push in  front of me - they are quite welcome -

 as long as they don't smoke near me !!!!

The mind set of a smoker must be on a parr with those people in the middle ages who threw buckets of human effluence out of a window and into the street, having no thought for others.

We all have the solid right to go to our versions of heaven or hell, in any way we choose,,,,, UNDISPUTED !
What we do NOT have, are ANY rights, to interfere with other peoples  `rights`, which are surely just as valid as theirs?.
This goes for all walks of life, and all types of poor behavour, be it smoke, noise, litter, or any other nuisance factor.
It really cannot come as any surprise, when people protest, at any such ?

Question for PPP, as you are the smartest one on here;
If you call a group of cows " a herd " & a group of sheep " a flock "
What do you call a bunch of people who toss their cigarettes on the floor ? ::)

Well I did think they should be called 'A Litter' but that is quite a nice word when you think of kittens and the like,
then I thought of 'A Chaos' or 'A Clutter' but finally I think they should be called 'A Pollute' for they way they pollute their environment without a thought for where they exist.

Yes, my choice for, a bunch of people who throw fag ends on the ground should have the collective title 'A Pollute'

OK Sting, I did think of a nasty one but thought it may upset one or two.

                        How about 'a Cancer' of smokers?

There was another load there this morning which means that theyve either got no shame or they dont read this forum. We could put a couple of small pots for them to toss their fag ends in & we could call them " Toss Pots "  8)
