>Is there really ANYONE out there who thinks taking out a nasty, stinky, honking big cigar in an enclosed public space is acceptable? Now, it’s one thing if you’re in a Cigar Bar or Lounge (ala The Library at the Marriott), but in a normal restaurant? What is THAT about?
Last night I went out with Teta and JiddoBean for a nice meal. The food was lovely. The only problem was the rude fellow who came 30 minutes before his party apparently to enjoy a cigar. Seriously, it was nasty, stinky, and smoky. He filled the entire room with his cancer fumes. Come on now. Smoking restaurants are one thing, but cigars?!
Where I come from, people who smoke cigars and pipes confine it to their own homes, their gardens (imagine), or a cigar bar. it seems to me that restaurant owners in Jordan need to step up and draw a line. Really, if I had a restaurant, I assure you it would be non-smoking. Every restaurant in town should be non-smoking (wasn’t there some law about that???), but regardless for the comfort of my customers, I would not allow cigars.
So, the the gentleman who ruined the atmosphere last night… you should be ashamed. To his kids who finally joined him, how can you not be embarrassed? Get some decency and regard from others. My achy throat and I will pray for some empathy for others for the whole lot of you.
Happy firehoses (lucky I didn’t have one)!
