Smoking in small glass boxes

May 26, 2008 @ 03:26 By: gordon Category: Greece 2008, Travelling

IMG_0115 While passing through the Frankfurt airport I noticed that no one was smoking and thought this was a Good Thing.  That is, until I walked past a pair of small glass boxes, each about the size of a bus shelter, packed with people who were smoking.    If you look closely at the pictures, you’ll see that the guy with the bright blue jacket is actually propping the door open but the cigarette smoke wasn’t pouring out.  They must have been negatively pressurized because you really couldn’t smell the cigarette smoke, except from someone’s clothes when they walked by you as they exited.

I can’t imagine what it must have been like in there, but I’m certain that you probably didn’t need to be sucking on a lit cigarette to get your daily nicotine fix.

    Who anointed you to decide what a smoker needs to do?

    Glad you posted a photo, it’s even more hysterical than I imagined. Enjoy your trip.

    @Joe: Clearly you need to re-read the article because I wasn’t saying “what a smoker needs to do”. I only wrote about something I observed in the Frankfurt airport.

    not smokey at all inside, surprisingly nice. the vents are amazing and most people are considerate enough to blow their smoke towards them.

      I was surprised at how effective they were in keeping the smoke in. Still had to chuckle at it, though. 🙂
