People who bum cigarettes all the time

When I smoked (decades ago), I used to hate it when people would bum cigarettes off me all the time. It was usually the same people doing it, and they would always say something like "I only smoke occasionally", or, "I'll get you back later." They'd never get you back later, because they never had cigarettes, and if you kept count, they probably smoked as much as a regular smoker.

Back then, cigarettes were a lot cheaper - even though they seemed really expensive at the time. I have no idea what they cost now, but it must suck even more to be handing out cigarettes to perpetual moochers.

I was a bad smoke bummer for a while, but it was only a 6 month period when I was "back on" smoking, but trying to quit

So I would never buy packs, but always be sorely tempted to bum on break @ work.

Im sure I was really annoying to a few of my more frequent targets... i bought them a few packs each to make up for it..

^exactly. Buy the targets a pack and then bum in the future here and there. If you don't smoke frequently then 20 bums can stretch out for a few months. Otherwise you're a fucking smoker.

Purchase a bag of reserve smokes. Smooth fresh smokes for you, stale cheap smokes for bummer.

I'm that guy now (bums cigarettes as I only smoke now when I drink -social settings, etc.), but I make it a point to buy my friends packs of cigarettes whenever we go out.

Now, they get the fun task of being my tobacco mule. Lose-lose.

Very simple way to handle this annoying problem.

Take a few smokes - 5/6 and empty out about half the tobacco. Once that's done, take a small bottle-rocket firecracker thingy and put it inside the half empty cigarette sleeve and pack the rest of the tobacco back into the cigarette.

Proceed to hand out one of these smokes to annoying deadbeat.

Trust me, it works.

back when I had a twitter account, this message was tweeted one day (Paraphrased, and I forget the author): "Opening pack of cigarettes nowadays is like waving a slice of bread at a flock of seagulls"


I've also memorized the toronto white pages.

If I'm out of cigs and I need one bad - I admit I bum like crazy. However I'm a solid bum. I generally buy the person drinks when we are out to show my gratitude of reaching for an early death

I bum smokes, but I also give away most of my smokes too.
Hopefully, that should even it out!
