do you consider that to be offensive?
should the smoker be asked, or in some cases here, forcefully told to put it out?

i still have the warm and fuzzies from all that grate discussion yesterday, and decided to start over with a different innocent question to hopefully generate a little more constructive discussion...

anyone care to add their .02 cents?

I don't care who smokes what near me at a show but if I have my child with me I ask them to please move.

2 cents ?

Hell, I'll add a nickel ...

Smoke all you want but if you chat on a cell
phone while next to me at a show, we are
going to have a serious problem ....

( Unless it's Lee, and he is calling ahead to pre-
order beers .... Then it's, Thank You Mommy .. )

I never talk on my cell phone at a show but I will dial someone who wished they could be there and put the phone up so they can listen.

You issue twisters better get back on track. This thread is about smoking, not cell phones. Damn you Dino!

Pam, 1st time I witnessed that was none other than Scotty, front row balcony, Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles .... I told Brent that he better be ordering a post show pizza !!

Lee, that's why I claimed it would be a nickel instead of just .02 !

I think we're supposed to add .02 cents, not 2 cents. Not quite sure how to do that but I can try.

You mean there are still venues that you can actually smoke at?!? Hell, now you can't even smoke at OUTDOOR venues if you re under the roof or whatever.

The good old days...when you could smoke ANYTHING and no one would say a word - except "Hey bud, can I get a hit?"

And on more than one occasion we did more than just reefer Grateful Dead shows, natch...

It depends on the smoker,wether you are polite or not. If you are going to blow it in my face or hold it in your hand next to me so the smoke gets directly in my face or if you insist on dancing or twirling with it so you burn me or my clothes then YES we will have a problem . It might also depend on how addicted you are , if you are going through a pack in the first set I will probably say something. I must agree about the kids if they are there then you should excuse yourself. You can have all the fun you want ...just not at my expence. I paid for my ticket too.........and I don't think you ask innocent questions , you like stirring the pot

It depends on what they are smoking and which
way the wind blows!

I only smoke with my toes in the aisle. And if somebody asks me to put it out, I hit them, then hit myself, then twirl around and step on my own toes.

I don't mind smoking, unless the somker starts off pretending to be friendly and open-minded, then quickly becomes rude and insulting.

If they're smoking a cigarette, clove, or a cigar, then I shoot dirty looks.

If they've got the swanky danky, then I bat my eyes and smile.

The smoking thing can get really bad. There have been times I have felt assaulted by the smoke. If it is that bad and I am in a venue that has a no smoking policy I'll ask the person, "Hey Tex. Do you mind not smoking?" Usually that is all it takes. My brother, well that's a different story. There was a guy at the Meadowlands during a late 80's Grateful Dead show huffing like a forest fire. My eyes were burning and my sister in law kept wiping her eyes. I kept waving the smoke away, but the venue allowed it, so I was trying to grin a bear it.

Finally my brother leaned in to the guy and said, "I know these Grateful Dead shows are about peace and love and all but I wasn't around back then. If you keep blowing smoke in my wife's face I'm gonna put that cigarette out in your eye." The guy nervously danced into the darkness. Sheesh! Little Brothers.

Once smoking was banned in NYC venues it was amazing to note the differences between shows at the Meadowlands vs shows at the Garden. Walking out of the Garden my eyes would be clear. I could breathe. I felt invigorated and still charged by the music. Looking in the mirror revealed a re-charged, ready for fun new me. After the Meadowlands... I just wanted a shower.

SNL did a skit back in the late 80's or early to mid 90's that poked fun at these major concert issues. Skit opens w/a couple of Not Ready for Prime Time Players sitting down at a Van Morrison show. The gals are up and swaying - I think they were supposed to be at Radio City - during one of Van's lesser know songs.

Soon a couple of the geriatrics sitting around them admonish them and ask them to sit down. The players dialogue is basically the stand up sit down thread. (Funny stuff ) The girls give in to the old folks and sit down just as Van launches into Moondance. The rest of the crowd leaps up and start doing the white boy dance. The girls exchange perplexed looks. Fade. Depends Commercial.
