The parents couldn't tell there was an issue before the child started school? Is the school district raising the child or the parents? The parents need to step up and take responsibility.

But it is a nusiance on the street and in public places. So I guess they are comprable.
Thank you for stereotyping all of the unemployed. Many aren't "sitting on their behinds being lazy". Many ARE looking for a job ALL over the country. The job does have to pay to support their families. Flipping hamburgers doesn't pay especially if you have additional expenses that happen due to taking a lower pay job.
I was raised with a smoker as well and it is a big deal. You got lucky so far.
I'm not saying they should have made a law because of allergies. I am saying that second hand smoke is dangerous. I love how my reply to Graceful's comment now has me demanding this ban. If someone wants to smoke, then so be it. I do hold smokers accountable for being lazy and showing a total lack of respect for others. One could walk away from the entry way, could hold the cigarette away from others, etc. I am constantly aware of surroundings due to the people with allergies in our family. My family is my responsibilty. However common courtesy, respect, to name a few is something we as human beings should show. Most smokers show an utter disregard for others,
Well I'm not full of it so you must be lucky.... Maybe you should have looked and smelled the air, then you would have noticed it.
Unfortunately my little girl can't "live with it" when she is exposed it becomes diffiult for her to even breathe shallow breaths. Just walking into a buliding past a smoker who happens to be standing right by the door blowing smoke out and holding the cigarrette down causes an issue. Are you saying that my little girl should have her life cut short because a smoker should be allowed to slowly kill her? Just exactly who should be held responsible for that?
What of those who go to a restaurant to enjoy a nice meal only to have to breathe smoke from the smoking section even if we are sitting in the non smoking section. Or those of us that have to run the gauntlet of smokers standing around blowing smoke in our faces as we try to enter a building? As for the employees quiting? Have YOU tried to find a job recently? I would have to say to you, using your own words, if you don't like not being able to smoke in a restaurant or bar...go to a private club.
My mistake, I apparantly need to clarify my remarks but I thought that since we were discussing second hand smoke from cigarrettes that it would be understood. I have two people who are highly allergic to cigarrette smoke. This has nothing to do with their immune systems not developing naturally nor have they been "pumped full" of antibotics. They are two different generations. I'm glad that your class (which is a small microcosim) had no problems that you know of; but since then the chemicals added have almost doubled. I'm am refuting the statement that second hand smoke in this day and age is not dangerous. It is.
