What would you do if someone was smoking inside a store with “No Smoking” signs? Would you ignore it, speak with management, say something to the smoker or something else?
Closed

My husband was recently sitting in the waiting area of a tire store when he smelled smoke. Looking around, he saw a young man taking selfies of himself smoking a jewel cigarette. None of the employees asked him to stop smoking inside the building even though there was a no smoking sign. My husband was also the only customer with a mask on and was concerned about all the germs that the man smoking could be exhaling along with the smoke so he decided to go outside and walk around the perimeter of the building while he was waiting. What would you do?

Despite what the management wants I'd still tell them. If it was a garage , bookstore or any other business that may have flammable stuff management has a need to know about smoker in their business. Of course once they know it is their personal business how they deal with it.

I would speak with the manager and have them deal with it. I don’t like ratting people out but if they’re going against customer policies, then it should be taken care of by the manager.

Many things these days are "fighting words," but still think I'd either confront a smoker...or tell management.

I'd go and have a word with the manager so it could be dealt with.

If the employees are not doing anything about it, then I would say that possibly nobody cares. I am seeing that kind of behavior many places I go to since the pandemic started. I would not want to argue with anybody about it as people are so crazy nowadays. I would just go away from that person who is smoking and maybe I would not go back to that store. The stress would be too much for me to handle a confrontation these days!

Speak to the manager to inform manager to tell the smoker to take it outside. If the manager doesn't do anything, I would stop going to that location and take my business elsewhere.

I wouldn't do anything. This type of behavior has become prevalent in our culture. I'm not sure why but I suspect it is because everything we do has increasingly stricter rules applied, especially smoking. I lived in the days when non-smokers had to endure clouds of smoke wherever they went. People could smoke anywhere they wanted with few exceptions. The pendulum has swung the other way and smokers are now outcasts. But this type of behavior exists everywhere. How about all those people taking selfies, clearly disregarding all posted rules. How about the crime wave taking place in big cities where there is no fear of the law. I would bet everyone has ignored a rule or law at least once in their lives. So that being said, I wouldn't let one rebel ruin your day.

I Would Just Go Outside, As Far Away From It As Possible!
