So, I was working yesterday, and all of a sudden the fire alarms go off, which meant that an entire building had to evacuate in the middle of all of their work–out into a 40-degree, misty day. We had to wait for the fire department to arrive and check everything out before we could get back in there. We all suspected it was a false alarm because we couldn’t see any smoke coming out of the building, but what we didn’t expect is that the entire cause of everyone’s disruption was some idiot vaper who decided to get their nicotine fix by using one of the bathrooms instead of putting on their coat and going outside to the smoking area, like every other smoker does.
News flash, genius: smoke detectors don’t just detect smoke–and “vapor” isn’t just really small H20. There’s particulates in that shit and when they cross the smoke detector and destabilize the ionization plates, they go off just like if you were smoking a cigarette. So, if you need your nicotine, go outside like everyone else. If you don’t want to go outside, then either pop some Nicorette…or just suck it up. You’re not immune from being treated like every other smoker, so stop acting like it.
