I don't like it either.
What I also don't like is seeing people from restaurants, take-away shops outside smoking still wearing their aprons. I've also see daycare workers smoking!!! Yuck!!

I can't stand it. I would be put off by the fact that she didn't make an attempt to cover up her uniform. Everywhere I've worked, all the smokers have to cover up the logo for the company, regardless of the weather. It's not even so much about the logo for me, it's the fact that all that stale cigarette smoke will linger in her shirt. There's nothing worse than being in a shop being served by someone who reeks of stale cigarette smoke.
Same goes for healthcare workers. Despite what they think, spraying half a bottle of perfume or body spray over themselves does not get rid of the smell. If anything it makes it worse!

I must add that I'm the kind of person who will complain loudly and vigorously wave my hand in front of my face about the cigarette smell when walking in a crowd, on a footpath, walking out of a shop. I'll slam our windows shut in summer while complaining loudly about the smoke wafting in from the neighbour.

I will admit to complaining to coles about employees smoking out in the parcel pick up area.
1) because it is illegal to smoke within 4 metres of a non residential building. (See pic) https://www.qld.gov.au/health/stayin...aws/index.html
2) it a covered area where the smoke builds up.
3) you can be stuck there waiting for 10 mins or more.
4) my kids have asthma triggered by smoke.

I dont think smoking in your work uniform is any worst look than stuffing your face with fatty food in your work uniform.
Both are pretty poor choice with bad health consequence yet it's everyone freedom to do so and corporations should have no say over it.

Meh. Where is the line drawn? As long as she was standing away from the entrance she was doing nothing wrong. I'm going to get roasted for this, but honestly, I think people get a little hysterical about smoking. Your child is going to get more damage from a lifetime of pollution and petrol fumes than the 7 seconds they walked near second hand smoke. I'm a reformed smoker but when I smoked I was OCD about smoking near others. Most smokers are considerate. Relax people. Unless your child never leaves the house for the rest of their life I guarantee you they are being subjected to way worse toxicity

At my last job there was so, so many smokers & getting in the lift after our lunch break used to make me feel so ill from the smell. Even if there was no one in the lift the smell would linger.. Just awful!
