One of the things I miss most about smoking (during those times when I manage to successfully quit for a few weeks) is the cameraderie. Yes, it's perfectly acceptable for strangers to bum smokes off each other. I actually quite like being asked.

Funny thing, at a "smokers' corner", you always meet and converse with a wide range of people.
There are always such nice pleasantries amongst strangers. [tamps out my homegrown/homerolled]

ETA:  Egad!  I tamped out tobacco, not that other home grown smoked plant.  ;D

The rude part of SIL is not that she didn't know, but once she was told, she continued to search for someone to prove her right. Yeah, she can ask questions or confirm with her friend but she went about it like an attack dog.

I smoked for 25 years. Yes, it is absolutely acceptable to ask. SIL sounds very special to me.

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!
