Bad habits entitle you to breaks

All my life I have worked with people who smoke or who drink coffee (many do both). I do neither. But you don’t see non-smokers going for an air-break. You don’t see water drinkers going outside to sip a cup of the clear stuff.

So WTF?

People who drink and smoke are smart. They get more breaks at work, and they are justified because they “need” the nicotine or the caffeine. I think I just convinced myself to finally take up smoking.

Anyone care to join me?

    We waited two weeks for this? I have been waiting with baited breath for your next great blog and it’s like Nero fiddling while Rome burns. your local boy John McCain is getting whipped in the polls by Rudy GUiliani (who DID have sex with a woman in the GOvernor’s mansion, not mentioned by the press still proccupied with the Clintons) and you decide to step out for a smoke. Say it ain’t so Joe. Remember what happened to Wally Pipp when he decided to take a breather. I’ll stop with the cliches and encourage you to write the next great blog. Your public needs you too much for you to be strung out on nicotine and caffeine. (Didn’t Cheryl Crow sing about that) Go get ’em kid. Uncle Bob

    Ok, Ok. The new one is up. This smoking one just popped into my head and I didn’t want the legions of holySmith! readers to think I was dead or anything.

    No worries…back on track.
