    Quite. Utterly horrible but her event had been severely compromised, so I could at least understand why. On a very different occasion (and not in hospitality) there had been an event at which bottled beers were served, and the folk were all leaving to get on a coach to take them to their next destination. I was standing at the door seeing them out when a young lad tried to hand me his bottle of Stella (yeah, I know), which had just been nearly vertical so was obviously as much saliva as Stella at this point. Hands firmly behind my back I politely told him he could put it on the small drinks table right next to me. "nah, I was offering you the drink" with an arrogant smirk on his face.

    Needless to say I didn't take it, and somewhat surprisingly (to me at least) that was the closest I ever came to not resisting the urge to take the bottle by its neck, smash it, and plunge the jaggy bit to his jugular.

    I can’t understand why anyone would drink straight from bottle or can, at least without thoroughly washing/disinfecting it first. Weil’s disease is absolutely horrible. Rats piddling over bottles in storage/transit - ugh!

    I've seen a dog piddling on a bread tray more than once.

    Was it a Spring a leak Spaniel? Or a Clumber? Or just plain incontinent?

    Golden retriever? Portuguese water dog?

    Surely that should be Golden reliever?

    Just street dogs pissing on a bit of new temporary street furniture.Delivery drivers were very careless about leaving unattended trays on the road while making deliveries.I don't suppose that the trays were cleaned between trips in those days. The dog scent probably built up very nicely (for dogs) over the years.

    Dunno why, God only knows, but while watering the cabbages at the allotment this afternoon the phrase “casting nasturtiums” came to mind as a complementary example to this.

    Should I be worried ?

    Hard to say, but the fact you're asking here isn't a good sign... :rolleyes:

    True. But carrying a post in my mind for 2 days is slightly worrying.

    Par for the course I'd say.
    Don't forget there are some who come back to posts weeks, months and even years later
