Smokers, however, do not have to clock out, because "it only takes 5 minutes." First of all, iIf her workplace is following legal regulations
- the employees must smoke outside.
- The smoking area must be at least 25 feet from any entrances and exits.

Well, she's fighting this unfair policy. I am so proud.
