SMOKING IN PUBLIC

What would you have done if you were in a public transport and beside you is a man puffing his cigar and smoke billows out to your face? This is quiet rude, and i can't let pass a man without giving him the lecture on how to properly behave as a law abiding citizen. The arrogance of this man was testing my patience when i requested him to stop smoking because he was in a public transport and it is prohibited to smoke in public. He retorted by saying, "why don't you buy your own car, so you will be more comfortable and hassle-free?"  As if i was comfortable with him as a sickening sight.  And yes, he was such a big hassle. I lost my composure, i told him if he won't stop smoking i will talk to him before a policeman whom i know was posted in not a distant area. Luckily, he stopped but murmurs still escape from his mouth. I kept mum. I will never win an argument with an uneducated person. I have nothing against smokers, let me just clarify, i am just against smokers who smoke in public places and transport.

OMG!How disrespectful of him!
Unfortunately we get to see that here too...
We're a non smoking family.
I don't care if others do smoke as long they don't smoke next to me or next to my kids.
Of course public transportation and public places should be very strict about it.
