Default pet peeves

Last night I discovered my first pet peeve in my hookah smoking career. We were at a bachelor party and I brought my pipe, so we were all having a good time, everyone was enjoying it, and one of my buddies kept smoking it and being really strange. he would pull, pull the hose away, grit his teeth like it hurt, held it in, smacked his lips like he was eating, and then would exhale, barely letting out anything. It was just annoying and I was so bugged by it..

over-reacting?

along the same lines i hate it when people find that if you use a hookah as intended as opposed to using it with nht they look at you like you are an idiot.

I can't stand it when people take a really hard/powerful draw. It's like they are sucking all the oxygen out of the room through the hose. That and it causes the tobacco to burn a lot faster. Nice description about the gritting teeth and lip smacking. That's f*cking annoying too. When people smoke hookah tobacco like it's NHT they look like douche bags.

I don't really care, as long as they pay me for any damage done and I keep the tobacco flowing.

Usually I am too busy tending other pipes to notice.

What i don't like is when i go to somewhere and bring my pipe with me and while i'm smoking they come there and nearly without asking suck the hell out of it. I usually describe them, that i don't go to other people, get out their cigarette from their mouth; so they shouldn't do this ... If they ask, and respect my rules, than there is nor problem, but in a way like that ...

i know exactly what you mean. i'll be sampling stuff and someone will be interested in the store, and me being the "customer service/salesman" that I am I'll offer some. They take a long drag, hold it in for a few, maybe more than a few seconds, and let it out. It makes you want to drop your head and shake it, oh well, that's life.

Haha, for me hookah is all about making big clouds and getting the most flavor... and you certainly can't do it that way.

I think my biggest pet peeve would be people who are impatient. The type who are like, "OMG, he took three puffs and hasn't passed the hose yet!" Hookah is supposed to be a relaxing social engagement, not a race.

yea, that same guy was pulling that too. I would take my pull, exhale, and he's already reaching for the hose. Gave him a dirty look.

That's the only thing that bothers me. They reach out just as I puff once and then keep it for several minutes.

I think you knee this friend in the family jewels.

Everyone I introduce to hookah seems to do that though. They inhale...then they inhale again like a cig...then they exhale slowly. It's a matter of explaining it to them in most cases.

I've only smoked with friends so far, and they all know how to enjoy a hookah, so i haven't noticed any pet peeves with that kind of stuff yet.

But i will see some people on stickam who just pull in really hard, hold it for a few seconds, then exhale really hard, and i'm just like... ><. I want to tell them "you're doing it wrong!" but it doesn't really matter to me.

I think the big clouds are a big part of the whole satisfying hookah smoking for me. I love letting out a big cloud of smoke slowly then watching it dissipate.

Although when it's a circle of me and 3 friends it's fun to play chicago, take quick puffs and pass the hose around quickly and the first one to exhale loses :P No point really, but it's fun to do with my friends who don't smoke often and complain about a really hard buzz, haha.

My biggest problem is the people who buy hookahs because they are a "hip" thing and then don't learn how to properly set it up.

I've smoked countless times on friends' hookahs and had ridiculously hard draws, no smoke, burnt flavor, or all of the above!

Kinda Weird? Never heard or seen anyone do that before. Did you ask him what he was doing? Might be an interesting answer.

@yeags777: You're not overreacting. I can only imagine how aggrivated you were.

My pet peeves:
People who keep it for too long.
People who only take one drag then pass it. I know this will sound really contradicting but for the love of humanity...ENJOY IT!
People that talk about the set up a hookah (bowl, coals, etc) and how to set it up when they've never done it themselves.
People who hold the hose while telling a lengthy story and don't even smoke from it or pass it.
People that are smoking cigs/cigars that decide to join in on the rotation. Either smoke your damn cig or the hookah...NOT BOTH!

People who power-pull and people who chain smoke the hell out of your hookah and hold huge lung fulls, going for buzz over flavor..(which ultimately winds up giving them a biiig stomach ache)
