    My sister in-law has a white trash, unemployed loser for a boyfriend that is thrust into my life this time of year. Holidays, family dinners, etc.

    Anyway, each time this guy comes over he goes outside to smoke however he leaves the ashtray completely overflowing when he leaves. The wind kicks in, they blow all over the yard, etc.

    I would never leave a big pile of my empty cups and trash on someone's patio furniture.

    I'm not a smoker, but that seems rude, right? He should clean up after himself?

    That is disgusting. May I suggest you ask him to clean up after himself before he leaves?
    Or dump the ashtray in his car.

    Give him an empty coffee can with some water and a rock in it. Then throw that shit out when he leaves. And problem solved. :)
    Yes, he should be courteous and empty his gross ashtray. And that's a pretty cool tree with the lights.

    That is completely rude. He's a guest in a strange place and he doesn't know what to do with his ciggy butts? Don't EVER let him spend the night!

    If he likes to smoke, set him on fire.

    Yes. That is gross. I try my best to be hospitable to my guests and make them feel comfortable, but I am not a fan of messes and can't understand how ppl can poo up ppl's homes and not care. I would just be direct, but gentle and say " Would you please dispose of your cigarette butts before you leave? The trash is right over there. Thank you so much."

    I was going with this but I gotta figure the guy must be a real jerk and I could see him tossing the ashes/butts wherever ,.like a garbage can or pile if leaves and starting a fire. I wouldn't trust him. I think u just gotta suck it up and clean up yourself or say no smoking on the property. Period.

    I don't know. I just pulled it at random from Google images.

    I'm going to go with the coffee can idea. Problem solved.

    The whole world is one big ashtray to most smokers.
    Next time you stop next to a traffic island at a red light, take a look.
    Disgusting.
    Why won't these people use the ashtray in the car?

    Maybe he's not used to using an ashtray and just flicking the butt in which case filling an ashtray and then emptying are not a process he's used to. If he's a guest who your blood thinks is worthy you should ignore or tactfully bring up the subject (coffee can idea was great) and let it take it's course and be thankful he dosen't visit often. You can pick your friends but not your family.

    Plus he's a Blanco Debris smoker! They are highest on the "I don't give a fuck what you or anyone else thinks about my smoking" cancer food chain....
    He'll be smoking out of that little neck hole in no time....I will spare you all my usual visual display....you're welcome....

    How does a white trash, unemployed loser have a girlfriend while someone like me, who has a graduate degree, a good career, a nice car and good manners got rejected all the time? I must be more hideous than even I thought.

    Honestly rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10.

    Then...

    Only approach girls that are 2 levels (or more) below you. If you're a 7, only go after 5s, etc.

    You've obviously got something working against you, whatever it is... doing the above will solve the problem.

    If he's not emptying them as a guest in your house, imagine his own house. Dirty, stale ashtrays full of butts. The stench. Ick:confused:

    I never thought I'd see folks as smug and sanctimonious as the people who smoke American Spirit cigarettes, until I read this thread.

    They don't use the ashtrays in the car (if they even have one) because...get this...they don't want the disgusting smell in their car.
