The Smoker

I've been watching this story unfold over the Qatar diplomat who lit a cigarette onboard a plane and when they knocked at the toilet door, he joked that he was just lighting up his shoe. Naturally, the airline folks and security TSA folks.....didn't take any of this as a joke.

He's being asked to leave now....by the end of today.

I sat and paused over this story....and looked at the picture shown here of the guy.....and frankly, I don't think he was smoking a cigarette. Oh, he was smoking something.....but I have serious doubt about it being tobacco.

The behavior he displayed after they knocked at the door....it's like a guy who's on a high. It was a typical joke that mary-j-u-wanna dude would make.

I'm guessing as he gets back to Qatar.....he'll make the talkshow circuit and make several jokes about lighting up his shoe.....and everyone there will have a big laugh about this.

What would a smoker say? Well....if they didn't have all these stupid anti-smoking rules.....he would have smoked at his seat and everything would have been cool.

Just my two cents on what happened.
