Just that really. DD went out with my friend and her family. Her OH smoked on the way home, despite my friend asking him not to.
My DD is asthmatic and has a cold.
It's against the law and I'm not sure what, if anything, I should do about it.

I'd hit the fucking roof.

Yanbu what a twat!
I'd personally say something to him and also stop all ousing that include him. What a selfish knobhead !
I'm an ex smoker and think that's disgusting

Anything short of ripping off his head and using it as a football is a reasonable and proportionate response.

I wouldn't be happy at all, however there isn't much you can do now other than make sure she doesn't go in a car with him/them again.

He sounds like a knob.

What an absolute cock. It's illegal now!?

YANBU at all. There's a reason it's been banned here in Ireland. Horrible that people do it at all.....

It's been illegal in England since October 2015.
I won't let her go in their car again, that's an easy to do. I don't want to cause trouble with my friend, or between her and her OH but I'm glad you all think he's a prat!

your friend sounds like she is married to a wanker who doesnt care what she says or feels.

Im not clear on how the law change is enforced. Id look into that and my dd wouldnt go to theirs again as the oh is clearly a
Nob

Well its illegal for a start, isnt it. I'd have gone nuclear on the twunt.

Thats bloody appalling. What a cunt <excuse language>
He should be ashamed. I would be livid too.

It's selfish and stupid but not the end of the world is it? I don't know what you think you could do about it now

With their own children in the car, too? Unbelievable.

FlatOnTheHill Mon 01-Feb-16 22:54:29

Thing is OP. What do you want to do about it? Because all you can do is have a go at him and in future dont let DD go in his car. I would be fuming. He sounds like a very ignorant person.
