On the first:
I must humbly apologize for my fellow smoke - aholics , personally I try  ( but
sometimes forget ) to stay downwind or abstain in close quarters . However , it
would be of enjoyment to many if autocrats would set up an indoor / sheltered
designated smoking area at events , so those with this most pernicious of
addictions can imbibe without having to brave the elements or disturb others to do
so .
On the second :
Once again , personally , I turn off my pager at events ( or at least put it on
vibrate )  , and while I do not have a cell phone , If the gentle who was so rude
to your lord is so important as to * need * to be in constant contact with the
outside world , so to speak , mayhaps he should invest in a cell phone that either
has voice mail or vibrating modes . The demand he vacate the rest room has no
legitimate grounds , even if he was the autocrat .As well, it is annoying to no
end to hear one of the aforementioned devices disturb a herald , speech , story ,
etc. , at an event .
