Won't you show you care?

subject: Won't you show you care?

I was back on the regular commute today for the first time this fall... and it started out irregularly. The Oakville Transit Bus was 10  minutes late so I missed the connection to my usual GO bus at Oakville station.

It was there that I came on this tragic case - or rather, he and his cigarette smoke flowed into my life.

I was sitting by the entrance doors and this guy walked up, sat down, and pulled out a pack of coffin nails. I pointed out that this was a posted no smoking area and asked him to please not smoke. His heart breaking reply?

"I don't care"

Imagine that people - sucking on burning butts has cauterized this man of all feeling. A pathetic apathetic smoke sucker.

So people, I put it to you, until either he or the Bylaw Enforcement people at GO Transit show a sign that THEY care, I'm going to show how much I care by taking as many pictures of these apathetic addicts as I can - and I ask that yo do the same.

Maybe if enough pics pile up we'll get some caring going somewheres...

Public humiliation works about as well on smokers as it does on Blob Ford.

Keep 'em coming. If I was there and this gentleman said that then I would be starting a fist fight by now.

Well, he does seem to have a really battered sense of self worth already - viz the Leafs cap...
