on a side note- it's interesting to me how many nurses are smokers as well.
the medical center i go to has these decrepit hags who hover about the entrance at all times, who are shockingly enough the nurses there. it's disgusting when they actually are in teh building to get you into patient rooms and whatnot- their yellowed awful fingernails touching all the equiptment, and them hacking up their lungs all the while as they take your temp. or fill in your appointment sheets. not to mention the fact that they reek of old smoke and other unplesantries that they use to cover it up.

i don't think its unfair to force smokers outside at all, especially considering how many people have lung problems these days. it's unfortunate that smokers don't take into account how damaging smoking is to their body until it's (most times) too late.

If you think they look bad, you should see stock traders on Wall Street. Their hands are visably yellowed from 100 feet away.

Yeah, you'd think it was addictive or something.

It's more startling to see how many nurses are obscenely obese! Hell, the hospitals are having to get heavy duty equipment for the patients, what about heavier duty floors for the nurses? Sweet Christ they're huge..
