Re: Walmart Employees Should Not Smoke in Doorways

As a smoker, I can understand how this would irritate you and be of some serious concern to your friend on oxygen.
Each business that wants to curtail smoking should provide an area where smokers can smoke that is somewhat of a shelter.
This means a ROOF (for when it rains) at the bare minimum....and if the business is nice to their people, a heater to keep the area warm in the cold weather.
The only things I don't agree with are no smoking in bars (ridiculous as many non-smokers smoke when they drink booze) and smoke-free complexes (hey, if I want to smoke in MY CAR on the property, that is MY business. It's MY car!). These two exceptions are anti-smokers taking things entirely too far and trying to behave fascistically towards smokers.
