Someone doesn’t know how to butt out

By johnboy - 23 March 2012 29

burning bin

DeskMonkey has sent in this picture of a pretty solid bin fire outside of the DEEWR building.

Someone needs a bit more education.

The same way it’s banned at shopping centres, and you have to walk through a cloud of smoke at every entrance.

The same way it’s banned on construction sites and you have to walk through a cloud of smoke to get from the building to the site sheds; and half the trades just smoke where they feel like anyway.

If we can’t pass a law against it or tax it out of existence, we should determine a test that identifies long term smokers and deny them any smoking related healthcare.

Call me conservative, but I really wish DEEWR would ban it just like DoHA did.

Or….like UC has done – create designated smoking areas away from the building out of sight and off public walkways

Be interesting to see how many idiots continue to put rubbish in there now that the bin has completely melted into a blob of green goop

God who even smokes anymore anyway.

Hello, the 90’s called, they want their tryhard substance addiction back.

just take the bins away and issue those little pocket butt bins. Then the person with burnt pants is the culprit.

But I thought you had to be superb, unique and incredibly gifted to get a job at DFAT, with an IQ no less than 140? At least, that’s what they let their graduates believe.

Isn’t that what most APS grads believe? 😉

Grads anywhere…

Go have a look at some large accounting firm grads if you want a real giggle…

Oh yes, that is working so very well. NOT! They just retire behind the bushes, there’s LOTS of bushes, and puff away. Or head over the road to the coffee shops and smoke and have coffee and natter for ages. No one’s enforcing it. It’ll take the Secretary heading down there and laying about her with her umbrella to change things.

Theres at least one video online where someone gets the shits with a smoker and let’s loose a fire extinguisher on them. Sounds like some deewr employees could do with this treatment
