    Foibles

    I have some foibles :

    (a) if I have stewed apples which are chilled or room temperature I have to have chilled double cream with them. If the apples are warm then cream is out and it has to be custard.

    (b) For me salad has to be cold. Everything that goes with it has to be cold as well. Nothing warm or hot will pass my lips if it is accompanied by salad.

    (c) If I have a typical British breakfast I cannot have baked beans and fried tomatoes on the same plate.

    (d) I am very annoyed if a barman serves me a shandy which is not homogenous. To see distinct layers of beer and lemonade angers me immensely.

    (e) I cannot abide the Thai practice of handing a customer a menu and continuing to stand waiting for one to order. I leave the restaurant.

    (f) On a similar theme I hate it when some muppet pours my bottle into my glass with a view to making buy another drink. I leave the bar.

    (g) I always walk into ignorant Chinese people when they seek to prevent me from leaving an elevator/lift as they try to enter it.

    (h) I will not talk to a man who wears any form of headgear when he is indoors or driving a car.

    (i) If I go to a Thai service station which only has squat toilets and no urinals I pee in the little bowl used for flushing the toilet so that I do not have to stand in a pool of piss or perform contortions to obtain relief.

    (j) I will not eat American mustard or frequent any establishment that serves it.

    I bet you get annoyed and beep your horn at people when you see them park their car on the same road you are driving.

    Good list
    b I love chips and warm boiled eggs in a salad.
    c I understand your concern over this, but it seems to work when hungover.

    I will not eat a Usinger's sausage without stone ground mustard. It's just so wrong. What you do with your sausage doesn't bother me.

    Never cared for Shandy but will have an occasional Samuel Adams Boston Lager though I much prefer a New Glarus Spotted Cow, Fat Squirrel or Two Women chasing and Evan Williams Single Barrel Batch.

    (a) I will not ever again pick up a bowl intended for dipping in water and flushing a toilet because a Welsh weirdo may have just pissed in it.

    Sometimes I just want to shoot cans just for fun if they really piss me off.
