Outside every entrance on the OCCC campus there's a sign that reads, "THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA REQUIRES NO SMOKING BEYOND THIS POINT." The signs are about fifty feet away from the doorways, so there's some space to avoid the airborne death-crud.
The way these signs are written makes me laugh, though. I know they mean that smokers should smoke no closer to the doors than these signs, but what it actually says is that the state does not require people to smoke past the sign. I'm glad. If they did require me to smoke, I couldn't get to work without breaking a law, or a statute, or whatever governs smoking on campus.
Despite the signs, though, smokers huddle right around the doors. I guess the addiction is so strong that they can't manage to walk that far away from the building, or care whether others have to breathe their filth just to leave. And cigarette butts must be awfully heavy, based on the number of them I see on the ground. Just. Can't. Get. To an ashcan.
Sorry. Ranting again.
