Smoking has left the building .... site

The most noticeable effect of the new smoking ban the England for me is that the builders now go to the front of the house for a fag1 break rather than lighting up in the half built extension.


1That is fag as in cigarette.

The smoking ban has moved one of the three approved smoking locations at the UK campus to the middle of the carpark, so that I now have a view of these social outcasts from my window position. I can now estimate the average number of outcasts at the smoking point over the course of a day to be around 5 - sometimes just 1 or 2 desperados in the pouring rain, sometimes up to 8 or 10 - but I'd say 5 on average. Multiply that by 3 for the 3 buildings and smoking locations, and I estimate we're funding 15 heads to stand outside all day long! That's a lot of dosh. I must say that the random sudden torrential downpours of the last couple of days have provided some good entertainment! all

and one of the zones is behind the bike lockers. It is just like being back a school.

It seems that you are permitted to smoke at work when working from home unless you invite other work correspondents into your home.
