    And the bad manners she has been taught....no doubt the woman was a bully getting in your face. Horse people sure are a mixed crowd:).

    Not that smoking bothers me much, but blowing smoke in my face would cross the line-- my wife probably would've had to jerk me by the back of the collar to prevent me from grabbing her smoke and rubbing it out in her upholstery.

    The jerks that get me are the ones who dump their pets in the country--somebody left this little guy by our house about a week ago. He was lucky--I'm sure the coyotes and foxes get most of them.

    Once, when stopped in a long line of traffic, I witnessed the girl in the car in front of me opening the passenger door and shoving a huge load of trash onto the side of the road. I have often regretted not writing down her license plate number so I could get her fined. I don't understand the mentality of these people at all. I don't see how they could think their behavior was in the least bit acceptable.

    I wonder if throwing a bucket of water in their face could be considered self defense? :D

    Hate to suggest it, but it could have fallen out of a garbage truck and somone just put in nearest recepticle. Probably not, but not impossible either. I have seen officers pick up something out of the road and place it in a nearby trashcan.

    Aren't some horses spooked by smoke?

    Given how much someone had to go out of their way to get to his dumpster I really don't think that was likely. Plus is was more than one bag, so I have my doubts it just fell of the garbage truck.

    A few days back I witnessed a guy on a back road completely stopped in the middle of the road, tossing out his fast food trash. He speed off when he saw me coming up on him. I didn't get a chance to take down his plate or grab a picture.

    Smokers are GENERALLY the worst for these types of actions, so I won't cry one note for them when smoking is illegal in the workplace in a few more years. Bring it on. They puffed smoke rings in our faces for years, time we got what we deserve.

    In Ontario, it's now Illegal to smoke while an infant is in the car with you. Good, bust em, give em a fine, whatever. Crack down on it.

    Sounds like something I've said. Smokers had their way for 500 years, I want the next 500.

    they might be if it was a large fire, however, when they are being ridden in the ring, the amount created by one cigarette wouldn't. there are many riders who do smoke, and i am sure they do it around the horses when they are at such events.

    the smoke was irritating to us because she drove right up next to us and it drifted into our space, and was instantly noticed.
