in thread Do you smoke tobacco?

...about on par with most of the responses I get when I point out to people that they're smoking in a non-smoking area.

Standing in line at "It's a Small World" (I had the kids with me, honest!), I pointed out to the guy in front of us that you're not supposed to smoke in line. He started to get angry and replied "Where's it say that?!?". I pointed at the map/schedule he was holding and said "in there." He let out an "oh" and at least he wasn't angry after that.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Personally, I think waiting in the line (plus with kids!) for "It's a Small World" is sufferage enough for one person. Having to put up with a smoker throughout the line is totally unthinkable! Leave it to ol' Walt Disney to turn a classic love ride (tunnel of love) into one of the most nightmarish (for adults at least, somehow most children are immune to it) rides I've ever encountered in any park. I rode it once back in the eighties and I still have the occasional flash-back nightmare!

      The more smokers you have in line, the shorter the line will be as people will get annoyed and leave. So, smoking is good, because it shortens queues.

[stevieb]: ...has honed in my skills of recognizing sound
[stevieb]: All of the early members are coming out of the woodwork today :) Hey, planetscape
[Corion]: This cover version had so much promise but the singing is underwhelming :-/
[stevieb]: erix Thanks! I dislike remakes of songs usually, but my favourite remix of guitar/weeps is Jeff Healey. I'll take a listen to yours
[planetscape]: hi stevieb!
[stonecolddevin]: also hi Corion
[Corion]: stevieb: Yeah, but I don't follow guitar players enough... I never got Prince and I don't think I could recognize his play style. I can recognize Santana and Nile Rodgers, but that's about it, and not really deep knowledge I think ;)
[stevieb]: Jeff Healey cut of My guitar gently weeps
[stonecolddevin]: you don't recognize Prince. Prince tells you it's him.
[erix]: Alvin Lee (Ten Years After) played a jazzguitar ("Big Red"), a good warm sound
