Years ago (10 years??) our city ordinance banned smoking in all restaurants, theaters and numerous public places. It was long overdue.

Recently, I went to a restaurant and 2 guys (40 something) were vaporing and I could smell the vapor from 3 tables away.
So, I approached them and asked them nicely if they would stop vaporing because their vapors were ruining my dining experience. 
Both basically flipped me off and ignored me. 
I managed to get the restaurant manager to witness this and requested that she ask them to stop it.
I can hear and lip-read their responses, but the manager was adamant in her request for them to stop vaporing. 
Both of them demanded their meal invoices immediately and both left in a big huff. 

Sighs...  Rolleyes

The idea of common courtesy seems to be a dying art.  Sad

Being a smoker myself, I have no problem with not lighting up in places like a restaurant even before there was a ban on it.   It is common courtesy that if you are doing something in a public place that is disrupting the experience for someone else then you should stop it.  Respect everyone desire so they all can have an enjoyable experience.  But I do draw the line when non-smokers come into a smoking area and expect the rest of us to stop smoking because they showed up.  That is pushing it.

For a few years before the city-wide (now state-wide) smoking ban in public places took effect, many restaurants did segregate smoking and non-smoking areas. 
That was a total flop because the non-smoking side would be full, but the smoking side would have few customers (including a few brave non-smokers).
Restaurants finally figured out that it was good for business (profit and reputation) to make the whole place non-smoking and designate a covered smoking area outside. 

In my state, many medical facilities have banned smoking ON THE PREMISES. That means on the freakin' property of that facility, including the parking lots.
I've seen a few times where the facility security would be escorting people to their cars asking them to leave the property because the idiots wanted to push the envelope on the smoking ban.

One irate person at one medical facility that I was at a few months ago, declared that their car was personal property and they decided that they can smoke in their own car and discard cigarette butts on the parking lot.
The security called the tow truck, when that tow truck arrived, that idiot peeled out so fast that they almost hit the security lady. Whoa!!
