use of real glass in glasses used to serve drinks in pubs and bars.
Seemingly, in Nanny's view, our drinking lives would be vastly improved (and made less risky) if the glasses were made of plastic.
The next time someone "bottles/glasses" us we would not be so seriously injured.
Factoid: drinks served in plastic really do not taste as good as when they are served in glass or pewter.
Well I don't know, I have been going into pubs and bars around the world for decades and no one, thus far, has ever tried to "bottle" me. I guess I must be going to some very boring places!
Anyhoo, yesterday evening my better half and I took advantage of the sunshine and went for a drink at a bar on the beachfront. Annoyingly this bar only serves its drinks in plastic glasses.
Not being inclined to move on, I decided to "tolerate" this abomination and ordered a bottle of red wine.
I was presented with the plastic receptacles and the bottle of wine (made from glass), which we then took outside.
Can you spot the error here children?
Yes, that's right, the bottle was made of glass!
That means I could have "bottled" someone, as opposed to "glass" them!
