Let’s shun mobile addicts
IN THESE enlightened times I suppose the normal thing to do is applaud any move to discourage smoking.
Ipswich City Council this week advised that no-smoking signs are about to go up at sporting grounds across the city, as a result of the ongoing phasing out of smoking in public places.
Pretty soon there will be virtually nowhere you can smoke, accept maybe for a specially made air proof cocoon.
I know some people are picky about smoking. I’m not so bothered, and never have been. There are worse things in the world.
Some of the blokes I grew up playing soccer with loved a darb in the dressing sheds at half-time. They may have been inhaling themselves into an early grave, but at least they had some character.
Compare the act of smoking to the act of sitting there with your mind buried in a mobile phone screen, completely ignoring everyone around you. I know who I’d rather hang around with.
