HAPPY TALK: The puffers are caught

Medialounge, see story above, reports on all sorts of problems with smokers at airports.  The puffers are being caught in corridors, on toilets, by potted plants and on the aircraft.  “I am very sorry but I thought it was OK until the door closed!” is a standard response.  At a smoke free Turkish airport, a man got stuck in security after a last cigarette outdoors and missed his flight.  He got violent, smashed a window and put up a fight with the personnel.  People have been known to tear down fire detectors in washrooms and toilets.  “But my human rights,” is another retort.
