Every day I come out of the building where I work, and there will be one or two people just sitting there. If its cold, they are bundled up. If its hot they might be in the shade. They are not talking to each other; they just sit and stare out into space, and do absolutely nothing except smoke.
I can’t imagine my life being lulled into such a non-existence. Even if I did smoke, being forced outside to sit in the corner and do nothing would just be intolerable, and I’d quit. How can anyone do it? I really don’t care that much about the health aspects of it; but isn’t time just too valuable to be wasted like that? Oh well; it’s not my choice.
