My biggest beef with smokers is that 99% of them appear to be giant inconsiderate litterbugs.
When smokers finish their cigarettes, they almost always just throw them on the ground wherever they were standing.
When I drive my car, people are always throwing butts out the window.
Who else litters like this? If you see a person finish their Big Mac and throw the box on the sidewalk and walk away, or someone take a piece of gum and then toss the wrapper on the ground, or drop their starbucks cup in the middle of the street when they're done, you're going to think, "What an idiot."
But smokers almost always just throw their butts on the ground and walk off.
I live in an area dominated by forests, and every summer the whole place becomes a giant tinderbox. A fire can take out thousands of acres and do millions or billions of dollars worth of damage.
All of the local trails have giant signs posted up, "HIGH FIRE HAZARD".
Matches, lighters, these things really aren't even ALLOWED in the forest under these conditions.
But what do you see when you go for a hike or a bike ride? People smoking in the middle of the dry forest, throwing their butts down on the trail when they're done. They could pretty much take out several miles of forest, kill a few people, and destroy an entire neighborhood but apparently the nicotene fix and the need to litter is far more important.
All I can say is WTF, man, WTF.
