At Waterloo central exit where the bike racks are, the area is liberally plastered with no smoking signs. They are affixed to the walls and painted on the floor.
Not only do commuters and tourists ignore them, but your own staff join in with them.
What is the point of the signs? Surely company employees should be encouraging people to move off, and not to smoke in designated no smoking areas? It beggars belief that your own staff stand on the signs that they should be enforcing.
I don't particularly want to fight by way through smokers and inhale their smoke whilst I am trying to lock up my bike.
It happens at other stations as well. It is hard to understand when the signs clearly say that smoking is not allowed on SWR premises they smoke in the areas just outside, in some cases adjacent to the ticket machines and the lockable bicycle racks.
i can understand people ignoring the signs, some people are like that. it's the fact that the Staff seem to endorse it by joining in that gets my dander up.
6 staff smoking there today. 2 of them I see there all the time. Not sure when they get any work done!
