Quick Question

Now that the smoking Ban is well and truly established and smoking in most pubs is now a distant memory, I've been wondering about a certain group of people. Namely "Social Smokers". ie People who only smoke when they are on the piss. Now that having a smoke in a pub involves abandoning the company your in, to go stand in a dirty alley beside the pub to puff on a cigarette, surely the term is going to have to be "Re-phrased". How will social smokers now be referred to?? (and how could I not end that question with a preposition??)

To what will Social Smokers now be referred? That's not quite right.

I heard a story about a famous academic being enraged that his secretary had corrected his preposition at the end of a sentence, and wrote her a memo saying 'That is the sort of pedantic behaviour up with which I will not put.'

I'd say social smokers are now known as cold people.

Social smokers make me jealous, although can be unbearably smug with their "I only smoke when I am drinking whats the hardship with giving up" bollocks.

Thus Smug Leeching Bastards
