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.
