This morning on my drive to work I was stopped at a stop light and looked to my right to see a lady with her window down. "What is she doing with her window down!" I thought to myself before I noticed the cigarette between her fingers hanging out the window. "Oh, she is smoking." Apparently smokers don't care that it is only 30 degrees outside. They need to have their smoke and don't mind freezing their arses off to get it. The same concept can be seen when exiting the south doors of my office building where the smokers gather to have their cigs. I can't imagine wanting something so bad that I would stand outside in below freezing temperatures to get it.
I think smokers are idiots. There are the health issues and then the financial issues. I'm not sure on the price of a pack of cigarettes but I imagine it is around $4/pack. If you are a pack a day smoker, then you are wasting $28 a week on cigarettes. That is a total of $121.33 per month or $1456 per year. That is ridiculous. I wish I had over a hundred dollars a month in my budget to waste. It's even stupider when you think that they are paying out almost $1500 a year for something that is slowly killing them. I think I'll continue to save my money and stay away from the cigarettes.
