I’d just gotten married. Just gotten out of school. We were struggled a bit financially. I was hired on at a local woodshop. They had about 4 to 5 of us working there and I was the only smoker. I have managed to quit this horribly addictive habit THANK GOD. Any way one day after chain smoking two cigarettes on break I get back to work. Pretty soon I start smelling a fire. I go tell the boss and we start hunting for it. Well first we smell it in one area then one guy smells it over here. So I head over there. Then in the other room. Soon we have every one looking. We have all smelled it in a different place but we can’t find any smoke. Finely after a good 20 minutes the boss give up and puts us all back to work…Did I tell you how broke I was. I had on this second hand pair of jeans that were a couple inches to long. They where work pants so I just rolled them up…and they filled up with sawdust…and a burning ember from my bad habit. Good thing my new boss had a good sense of humor or I’d be flipping burgers instead of eating sawdust for a living.
