How many has that been this year? How many of these people I wonder were behind on their mortgage payments?

If you leave your cigarette butt on your outside deck, that's not accidental, that's arson!

That's why we don't rent to smokers. High risk tenants and the house/apt. always smell when smokers move out. Wanna smoke, buy your own house.
