this morning!
She was surrounded by children and didnt seem to care.
Im not sure if reporting it to the school would help as she was not standing on school grounds. (and she did look too scary to approach!)

was she kicking a puppy at the same time?

you do realise the fumes from the cars on the roads is bad as well.
Do you stop your children walking down the street?

I asked what part was illegal because I can't imagine any other reason that this would be a problem. I assumed you though it must be illegal. Rather than a grown woman acting legally.

You sound properly judgemental.

Nobody starts smoking with the intention of becoming addicted, and it's none of your business.

It could have been one of those electronic ciggies with the fake smoke, or she might have just been fat.

Oh well in that case OP,as she was pregnant,you should have right tackled her and wrestled the fag out of her nicotine stained finger whilst berating her on how bad it is for the baby. <rolls eyes>

Bet she wasn't really pregnant. You're just saying it because people aren't agreeing with your op.

Even if she's pregnant it's not reportable or your business. It's her business and possibly her GP/ midwives/ partners also to discuss with her.

*rugby tackled.

no I wouldn't find it a problem - it's none of your business.

LOL, - is this a wind up thread?

mrskeithrichards Fri 09-Nov-12 14:31:04

She was pregnant?

Anything else?

Although there was a mum outside school the other day having a fag whilst her newborn slept in its babyBjorn carrier thing. Nice.

mutny Fri 09-Nov-12 14:31:55

She was pregnant as well, suppose you dont find that a problem either then?

I am sure she was. Again, if she was its her own business. Do I agree with it? No I don't and gave up smoking when pg. But its not my decision to make.

I'm a non smoker, but seriously? If you report this woman to the school all you'll achieve is alerting the school to the fact that you are quite possibly a slightly bit loony.

Report her to SS, smoking whilst pregnant outside a school shock

Or you could possibly mind your own business.....

RyleDup Fri 09-Nov-12 14:32:12

Pregnant, goodness, you should have smacked the common cow in the mouth.

I don't agree with smoking while pregnant, but then I don't agree with abortion either. The prevailing opinion on MN seems to be that a woman has the right to control her own body, and if that means smoking in pregnancy, then so be it.

Yabu because it is your job to keep our children away from other people who are doing things that you don't want them to be exposed to. It is not the responsibility of everyone else in the world to stop doing normal, legal things just because someone else doesn't like it.

I expect she was also handing out fruit shoots and greggs sausage rolls.

Shall I continue?

AND she was buying the cigs with her benefits.....shock

Oh, you're quite new here, aren't you?

Welcome to MN, there's some, ahem, sturdy posting on here.

You would lokk si much more lovelier with a Capitalised username though and lose the extraordinary 2, please.

Voiceofthevoiceless Fri 09-Nov-12 14:33:36

I have just spat my coffee all over my screen. smile

Nancy66 Fri 09-Nov-12 14:34:43

....spitting at pensioners too from what I hear

ThickCut Fri 09-Nov-12 14:35:16

Haha is this a wind up? If not, so what, not illegal. Report it to the school if you want somebody else to laugh at you too

crikeybill Fri 09-Nov-12 14:36:28

Erm riiiight.
What do i think of what exactly ??
Smoking....outside .....in the street ???? And ??
Smoking when pregnant....not my business. I wouldn't but there we go.

Are you being unreasonable ? No. Your being ridiculous !!!

BreeVanDerTramp Fri 09-Nov-12 14:36:38

Did she have her goat with her?

<whistles innocently>

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 09-Nov-12 14:36:47

she wasn't pregnant at all was she, you are making it up

mrskeithrichards Fri 09-Nov-12 14:38:07

On a slightly related note, back in the day when we called it predictive text, my now dh text me to say he wanted to kick my puppy which I thought was a bit mean.
