Rich19Do the teachers enter and exit the classrooms via the windows or something? If you can smell it, it's a fair bet they can as well.

What I was thinking. You won't be the only one to smell this. Bet the teachers are already on it. I mean, they should have figured out by now someone is smoking?

Well... I wouldn't have a lot of problems with it. I mean, I don't think they smoke the whole hallway out, so I think the problem isn't that big. I wouldn't do anything. I wouldn't care that much neither. But just do what you like. If you really can't stand it and suffer from heavy health problems due to it, why not reporting it.

Smith_Dont be a snitch.

Why? This sort of comment comes up a lot, but it's rare anyone manages to give a realistic reason for it...

Cause it isnt dangerous to smoke or to hide in a bathroom to smoke, god damn. It just affects the smoker and it is just slightly annoying for the next person to enter the room. But trust me, that annoyance isnt that great compared to the usual urine smell you get in those. Is it dangerous for you? No. Is it dangerous for anyone except for the dude that smokes in there? no. Get over it, it doesnt affect you. If the school wants to do something, it will do something, else, it isnt of your matter.

If I walked up to someone in the hallway and gave them a light strangling every so often, (assault btw,) would you still be saying that sort of thing? But smoking essentially does the same thing, especially when in a school building where people don't really have a choice but to be there. Smoking lowers the standard of living for everyone in the school, some more than others. If people are smoking in school then they need to be prevented from doing so.

Lemme remember well, if someone wants to smoke, can this person go outside to smoke without beeing "attacked" by some school-paid goon so that he has to stop smoking then to be reported to his parents? If yes, I support the "snitching", if no, I support the guy who smokes.

Whether the guy can smoke outside or not he doesn't really have an excuse to make the lives of others more difficult. Sure his lot isn't as good as it could be but if I lose a chocolate bar I can't go and beat someone up even if it would make me feel better. You can not smoke until the end of the school day, it's not asking a great deal for you to respect the people who go to the same school as you enough to do that.

Well I could turn the question around, it isnt a great deal for you to respect others' choice of smoking. Sure that guy should go outside, but then there are the school goons. In a way, you're saying to do the exact same thing that this guy did for the chocolate bar.;)

You could turn the question around, both people are denied luxuries. So what's the difference? Only one, the smoker, is causing harm. If he didn't harm anyone, didn't make their clothes smell like smoke, didn't make it harder for people to breathe, didn't lower the standard of living for everyone around his activity, then indeed he could go and smoke to his lungs' content. But that's not the case, he causes harm to people who have done nothing to deserve it.

You make some very interesting points, Nemmerle.

However..

NemmerleOnly one, the smoker, is causing harm. If he didn't harm anyone, didn't make their clothes smell like smoke, didn't make it harder for people to breathe, didn't lower the standard of living for everyone around his activity, then indeed he could go and smoke to his lungs' content. But that's not the case, he causes harm to people who have done nothing to deserve it.

I almost cannot believe that's the case. That is, if we're talking about one person. I mean, if one person is smoking, in the bathroom, I almost cannot believe it makes the whole hallway smell. Therefore, I certainly do not believe that his smoke causes so much trouble. I find this all a bit dramatized. It can't be all that bad, there's only one kid smoking! (Assumption, but I cannot imagine a dozen of boys fit into the bathroom to smoke).

But still... If DeltaForce really does suffer, I would say.. OK, just do it if you want to. However, if he just finds the occasional smoke annoying, I would say, why bother.

Kids at my school just walk right across the street and smoke, but now it's harder 'cause we have "closed" campus, it's their way of keeping it a drug free school.

But yeah, I too hate the smell of cigarettes on people's clothes, just do what Pete suggested.
