to think pregnant Mums who are fined for dropping fag ends should not go complaining to the local paper about their unfair treatment?

Yes, I know that smoking is an addiction and some people find it really hard to give up but this woman in our local paper seems to think she has been treated so unfairly.

She was fined for dropping a cigarette end on the floor. She claims she only dropped it temporarily with her bags so she could attend to her 3 year old daughter.

She couldn't bend down to pick it up as she was heavily pregnant with a cracked pelvis so she asked the 3 year old to pick it up for her!!!!! She was then pounced on by a council official.

If this was a posting on Mumsnet I would think troll. Are some people for real.

shock Thats about as gobsmacking as the time I overheard a heavily pg woman telling her mate she was missing eating angel delight ,but wouldn't touch it as it was bad for the baby hmm all this was said while she was puffing away on a fag .

Am impressed with those 'council officials'. If they fine someone for dropping a dog end, they must bring out the firing squad for fly tippers. Marvellous entertainment.

Did they show a picture??? Astounding.

Could she not have discreetly disposed of her fag but in an empty froot shoot bottle?

Yes the picture looks a bit (cough) well a certain type of person, you know.

The comments added by people on the website are hilarious, especially the one about her being named after a deodorant.

TheCrackFox Tue 30-Sep-08 21:22:05

And we all thought the argy bargy on MN could get out of hand? The comments on the website don't pull their punches, do they?

I make a point of putting mine carefully in trash bins full of dry paper. I am good like that and wouldn't want to upset people.

5 cigarettes a day? My arse!

Simplysally Tue 30-Sep-08 23:02:27

It actually reads like a spoof, doesn't it?

The mispelt name, the cigarettes, her mother's age.

She's so gorgeous someone even named a body spray after her


That's the funniest thing I've read for years

oh my goodness, I thought this was a joke but the article is spectacular...

JODIEhadababy Wed 01-Oct-08 07:33:00

Is it me, or does the woman in the picture look like Waynetta Slob from Harry Enfield?

'I'm smoking a faaaaaggg'

I don't know what's worse, he smoking while pregnant, or asking her little girl to pic the nub end up for her?? Oh dear lord, what is the world coming to? wink
