Smokers Can be a tad Touchy…

And if you ask them not to smoke, they might just take a pen and stab you right smartly in the face…  Like a man did to a Jersey woman

A New Jersey woman was stabbed in the face with a pen on a New York City subway train after she tried to stop a man from lighting a cigarette.  The assault occurred on a crowded No. 3 train near the Chambers Street station during Tuesday’s morning rush.  Witnesses told the Daily News and the New York Post that an argument quickly escalated when Evelyn Seeger asked the man not to smoke. The witnesses say two riders were trying to restrain the man when he pulled out a pen and slashed Seeger’s face.

He’s probably a coffee drinker too.  Whatever the case, what a violent chap!  And isn’t it against the law to smoke on trains?  I’ve only ridden the Jersey rail a dozen times or so so I don’t recall.  But I think it is.

    I don’t smoke thank God! But I remember my Father’s generation (WW2) that did. Though even my father quit in his 20’s somewhere. He was 88 when he died.
