    Cheers for the advice, the poll would only have had: Do you think it was rude to sit and smoke at the same table as me?

    The rest is yet again irrelevant.

    How was the chess match?
    The doo got done apparently.

    Oh, I would, just so that "someone" can start another thread on them.

    My answer is no. It may have been unthinking and inconsiderate but it wasn't rude.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Is unthinking and inconsiderate not rude?

    I would say you add them together you get rude.

    I'm still really curious as to why you had the temerity to opt for abuse, rather than a polite request?

    It was said politely but not a polite phrase however I'm curious as to why they had the temerity to just sit next to us and smoke.

    Perhaps it was mirroring I'm going to speak to them as rudely as they have just been to me.

    I deem their behavior as worse than mine.

    Fair enough CT - I've said earlier in the thread that you have the sympathies of some folk, and I am one of them.

    In similar situations, I've always opted to politely ask first (as I won't be dragged down to anyone else's level), but I appreciate your reply

    No problem we all take things differently, some folk wouldn't mind some have have gone further than me.

    For me I would rather be called an ignorant ******* something that lasts a couple of seconds than sit around in amongst smoke at the table.

    Who would have gone further than calling them ignorant ******* ? And what would further be? Punching the bloke out (and then of course punching his burd out as it would be rude to gender-discriminate)?

    I don't see what is confusing people get assaulted everyday for various things that you or I may think are rather trivial.

    I don't think anyone on this thread would have physically assaulted a couple for smoking at an outside public table. Then again, there are a few characters on here and I could be wrong

    How do you know? I'm saying in general people have actually been assaulted for far less. You or I have no idea what folk are capable of on this website if we haven't met them. I will think though everyone on here is sound.

    I wonder if the area had ‘Smoking Zone’ notices up.

    Unnoticed by some.

    You can smoke that's never been the issue, the issue was just sitting at our table without even acknowledging us when there were other tables then just to start smoking once again without saying. I think the least I expect is some sort of acknowledgement if at a table with other people.

    I don't. That's why I said "I don't think" and then acknowledged I could well be wrong.

    You said yourself you think everyone on here is sound though. So basically you said the same thing as me in reverse

    You don't need to tell me I'm not sound... I'm one of the biggest to55ers I've ever met.

    Have you considered the fact you were taking up seats in the smoking area while not smoking.😉

    The couple rightly lit up in the smoking area, it would have been a different scenario if they were inside the pub where it is not allowed.

    It's a beer garden for the use of everyone, they can light up I am saying at a shared table when others available they should have at least said you OK if we sit here and then smoke. Maybe you don't but I have never sat at a table in a pub that people are at without saying to them.

    I agree with you that they should have asked. I do think you sound like you over reacted though. But they should have asked, smokers know how much non smokers hate it so to sit beside you and spark up is rude. Even my mates would ask me if they were doing that, never mind a stranger.

    Hang on!! Who said it was the smoking area? Been in places down south where they segregate it so everyone has a choice.. I think the Railway (Juniper) did it, not sure if it still does, although last time I was there the ashtrays were clearly all placed in one area of the garden..... Thing is if smokers are going to ignore that then they will reap what they sow as we did regarding smoking inside?
