No Escape

They are everywhere. On Thursday night we were having dinner at the Mt Erskine night market and within that short half-an-hour we had to move from one table to another twice just to get away from them.

If you still don't know what I'm talking about, I am referring to smokers. One of the most, if not the most, selfish people on planet earth.

Sometimes I just wish I could just do that

And if you would think that we could have avoided them when we are home, you're wrong. Our neighbour in the next apartment smokes the foulest smelling cigarette ever and she, yes it's a woman, would have her nightly smoke out on the balcony.

Unfortunately we are down wind and so we are the unwilling recipients of all her second-hand smoke. We have no choice but to close our door and windows. It's either we deprive ourselves of the cooling night breezes or die from the effects of second-hand smoke.

If we can complain to the authorities on noise pollution, can we also lodge a complain tabout air pollution?
