5) Hot chicks marketing. It always struck me as puerile and dopey when vendors or lounge owners show some scantily clad babe lounging around smoking. Sometimes adds for the moassel or narghile are so focused on the cutie that it's tough to tell what exactly they are selling. I don't give a damn how hot the girl is because when I am looking to buy something I want to know what makes it worth my money.

Anyone else have any marketing pet peeves?
I DEFINITELY can agree with you on this one.

don't some vendors realize that there are GIRL smokers who are STRAIGHT?

Pssh, how would the male smokers feel if girls changed it around by instead of having a "hot" chick on the ad, changing it to a shirtless, greasy "hot" male model on the front? Hah >_< NOW does everyone understand what I'm saying?

I'm not exactly a feminist, but it annoys the effing hell out of me when females are just marketing products. I know "sex sells" but it gets very old after a while
