This sign is on the wall at an entrance to 2300 Yonge Street.


These cigarette butts in the cracks are a few feet away from the wall with the sign.  (Butts in the cracks?  Should it be the other way around?)

This is another example of how NO SMOKING signs apply to non-smokers only.

Smokers are like the rest of the human race.  They believe that the rules do not apply to them.  The rules are there for other people.

Many years ago I asked a smoker not to smoke in an area with NO SMOKING signs.  The smoker blew smoke in my face and laughed.  “If you don’t like it,” he said, “then don’t breathe.”   Ever since that happened, I have tried to come up with a way to live without breathing.  No success so far.  Any suggestions?

Smokers do not obey NO SMOKING signs.

Smokers do not obey ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING signs.

Smokers do not obey POSITIVELY NO SMOKING signs.

Perhaps smokers will obey a sign that reads:


I doubt that they will, but it’s worth a try.
