Hello Mike and Mark
I’ve only just listened to these two podcasts, and I have a HUGE doubt.
I absolutely hate being a passive smoke: it messes with my concentration and with my general disposition. Other than that, I think nowadays it is just rude to start smoking next to someone without asking first.
But unfortunately, this is an usual occurrence when I’m go out for a meal with friends or other people.
My question is, when someone with whom I have or might create a professional relationship starts smoking (usually at the end of the meal, but sometimes in the MIDDLE of the meal), should I just ask them not to smoke (I’m only 25… and it is VERY UNCONFORTABLE to make this request to people that are older than me), or should I just endure the hole meal and keep it to myself?
What are your thoughts on that?
Many thanks for all your work!
