Can a fellow smoker please tell me which brand often has an extra cig in the pack? I've been a smoker for about 30 years now and I have never bought a pack that had an extra smoke in it. The one thing I can't stand is when someone asks me if I have an extra smoke. I will usually take my pack out of my pocket, look at it and then inform them that the pack only had 20 cigs in it when I bought it so no, I don't have an extra one and put the pack back in my pocket. The look from the hapless non-equipped smoker is always priceless. They then usually will ask again. Process repeated. After 2 times, they usually get it and will ask if they can borrow or bum a smoke. No you can't borrow one because I know you won't give it back. I may let you bum one depending on your attitude at this point. I have never been able to figure out how a smoker can not have smokes. Smoking is a serious addiction. Smoking is getting more expensive everyday. If you can't afford or don't have the forethought to be prepared to feed your addiction, give it up. Oh, and if you are asking me for a smoke, at least have your own G*&$%^n lighter!

Damn that is a bitter post, relax some fujieagle.

Are you that tight on cash that you cannot spare one cigarette? If you can't afford or don't have the forethought to be prepared to give up one smoke every once in a while then maybe smoking isn't worth getting all worked up about. It is pretty annoying when it happens to me but I would rather give one up and get another beer

I use smokeless tobacco and on the rare occasions I run out at work and have to bum I try bring in a new can the next day for the hapless soul I had to hit up for a dip. They do not seem to mind me bumming from them on these occasions.

It's mostly the guys that always seem to want to smoke but never have any. There's one guy at work that bums 3-4 aday but every week, he buys me a pack. He's trying to quit and doesn't want to carry them himself. I'm cool with that but it's the guys that always seem to never have any and always ask for one that get under my skin.

There is an easy way to avoid these annoying occurrences......stop smoking.


Sorry....common sense, reason, and the fact that there is not one redeeming quality that smoke or smokeless tobacco consumption provides, forced me to say it.

I was always amazed at guys in the Navy that "quit" just before a deployment. They always spent the entire trip begging/borrowing/bumming, sometimes even buying them at insane prices. There were also always a few who purchased extras before deploying.

I too got annoyed with people who constantly try to bum smokes, especially those that are "quitting" by the "OPS" (other people smokes) method

People are idiots. I concur with the OP.
Sometimes I even remind them to buy me a pack. They do sometimes, but it pisses me off too.
