I absolutely cannot stand lighting one up then having to put it out 10 mins later when life gets in the way.

Hate it when people think smoking premium cigars is equivalent to smoking cigarettes.

Hate there's not a b&m within 50+ miles of me.(seriously, I want nothing more than to go to a shop, browse, shoot the shit, and talk cigars)

That's it.

First post nailed it BTW
So far what I hate about cigars is standing in a SMALL B&M looking at three dozen open boxes of cigars and saying ..what the hell am I looking at?????
And then the guy who works there starts telling you things like "we have Macanudos, Rocky Patels, that's one of the newer brands and they're really popular, over here we have Java cigars, they're like a coffee-flavored cigar and they're really good, we do have a box of Cohibas, they're a little more expensive but they're one of the biggest names in the industry and that's what Fidel Castro smoked so you know they're the good stuff, and down here we have some cheaper options" as he points to a bin of Factory Rejects or some shit like that...

And of course, "just let me know if you have any questions"

When people slam a cigar they haven’t tried. “Nah I’ve never smoked one of those, it’s a dog rocket”..... how do you know then I wonder .....

When I sit down on my couch with a cigar, cut it and go to light and out of fluid. SOB! Gotta get up again.

A lot of cigar shops up here in WA sell those cheap "Cuban rounds" cigars, and a *lot* of people think they are actually cubans. Its pretty sad.

a local grocery store was like this for a while, they had a little glass cabinet with cigars in it, i bought one from it one day(a little arturo fuente thing) and it was bone dry! I told them about it, and they got kind of upset with me and said "They are maintained by the distributor in good condition!" and i was like "See the little sponge? thats your humidifier, its dry. The cigars are dry, no good anymore" They ended up just getting rid of the cabinet :c

Same thing happened to me, when I told the guy he looked at me like I had 3 heads and was speaking Klingon. They even had some FD double ligero too, next to the acids and macanudo cigarrellos of course. Pulled one out and against my sub conscious screaming not to waste 11$, I bought it. Was so dryed out I had to chuck it

Hate to see good tobacco go to waste.

When you light up a premium cigar you've been itching to smoke, and your new lady friend calls and says she'll be over in 10 minutes and to be "ready".
On point and great post!
Hate to dump a stick, but 'ready' will always outweigh a cigar, and female friend arranging long hair into a neat ponytail absolutely trumps any baccy.
Especially when you're hard up like me.
