    So, my workplace has banned vaping indoors :(

    I thought i would be prudent given that i report directly to our COO, and ask for the company HR policy to be updated to include PV's.

    It's been decided that it is allowed on premises (whilst smoking is not), but not indoors. We are moving to a new building, which is open plan (i currently have an office), and they're concerned that it may take off, or disturb other people if used indoors.

    Bummer... I should have just kept vaping away quietly to myself

    Anyone else's workplace taken this stance?

    I've snuck vaping in bit by bit. We have an outdoor sitting area, of course smoking is not allowed. We often eat our lunch out there and I always vape after lunch. My boss doesn't sit with us, and no one else minds. If it's really hot we eat inside and I asked if anyone minded if I vaped inside the first time. No one did.

    I also vape in the tearoom, but because we stagger out tea breaks I'm alone when I do. A couple of times someone's come in but they don't say anything. Actually, once a colleague commented on how nice it smelled.

    When my boss isn't in the room I vape at my computer in our office, but I don't flash it around if he's there. He's an ex-smoker and he knows I vape, I just don't want to force the issue of vaping at my desk.

    There's 10 types of people in this world that understand binary: those who do and those who don't.

    Gee, I am so glad I'm now free of all that workplace nonsense.

    Some HR types don't even qualify for the first word of their department's title (the "human" bit).

    I feel for you guys.

    THey got sick of pretending at our work, and have changed their title to OD "Operational Developement Team" So now they don't have to concern themselves with such trivia like the workers well being. pineapplepineapplepineapplepineapple tards.

    Spent on Smoke: $600/month when 1 pack = $18
