Manager smoking while right next to me

She was smoking while showing me how to use the card board baler. As she was standing right next to me. At one stage she looked like such a knacker with the fag in her mouth, while both hands were occupied.

This didn't seem very professional of her. I was wondering if I should say "that cigarette is a bit too strong for me" but I didn't want to piss her off. Bloody annoying though. Having thought about it, I seriously doubt she'd done this back when I was new on the job. I've never been that close to a cigarette for so long. Yauk.

I've got a new job now, and I'd have a good mind to send a letter to her boss about this.

Do you now know how to use the cardboard baler? If you weren't listening she was will have to show you again.

I do, but if she has to show me again I will tell her. I don't care if I get fired.

Most unprofessional things aren't as noticeable as this though.

Don’t worry OP, smokers are jokers. She will get her comeuppance, mark my words!

Outdoors. I still think it would be common manners to put the bloody thing down while you have to stand next to someone.

Shame. Not much fun being at the wrong end of a cigarette
