Never smoked a day in my life, and that's something I'm proud of (nothing against smokers of course).

I am an owner operator and have never let any of my staff smoke or use smokeless tobacco on the job.

I dip, but I keep a Mud Jug or plastic spit cup with me instead of spitting all over a customers property. I also smoke cigars on occasion, but never on the job.

If you see someone smoking while mowing, etc. Take a picture of them doing it. Give the picture to the customer with your information, and let them know "you would never do this on their property, and would love to earn their business".

I once asked a new girlfriend if she smoked after making love...she said she had never looked.
