Two jerks were sitting, smoking cigarettes, by the open entrance to one of my properties. My wife confronted them telling them they couldn’t smoke or loiter there. The one said, “He lives here.”
WRONG ANSWER MORON.
She said something to the effect, “You live here? I happen to know you don’t because I’m the landlord.”
He then changed his story, “Oh, I was mistaking.”
Let’s Be Clear
Let’s be clear. When it is your property, you set the rules as to who can, and who cannot smoke, drink, cuss, etc., while a guest on your property. Even before non-smoking laws became the thing for states and cities to pass, some businesses would flat-out say, “No Smoking”.
Unfortunately, there were businesses who felt they would lose business if the told people they couldn’t smoke there. That’s a bunch of hogwash.
New York State Commercials
I like the New York State TV commercials that basically say if you’re poor and uneducated, the tobacco companies are fooling and robbing you. I think they should add: drug dealers, beer and alcohol companies, and other forms of drug peddling. They go after doctors for prescribing too many medications, but they ignore the alcohol industry.
The next time they are out there, I’m just going to call the police department. There’s even a no-trespassing sign on the door. I’ll just ask they be arrested for trespassing.
