You’re not allowed to get thirsty anymore, apparently, so now everyone carries little bottles of water around with them.
At work, whenever we go into meetings, half the desk space is taken up by bottles of water because, it seems, no-one can go for an hour without needing to have a drink.
You could say I’m being hypocritical here as, whenever I go into a meeting, I’ll always take a cup of tea in with me. But I do that, not because I might get thirsty, but because it’s tea. And of course, one should always take tea into meetings. It’s social etiquette.
And besides, someone might bring biscuits.
In the Gents toilet at work (I daresay it’s similar in the Ladies) we have a poster as shown, at reading height above each urinal.
I sometimes get strange looks as I stand there having a pee and say rather too loudly (and on purpose, of course), “Oh yes! Pale straw! Result!”
