To think that if your going to spend Christmas Day snorting drugs you should not be doing it in

The disabled loo/baby change of a well known family type restaurant. Whilst using most surfaces (the ones that more vulnerable people may need to steady themselves or baby's may be led on) to sprinkle your drugs on.

If that's your thing fair enough but wouldn't it be more appropriate to do it somewhere else?

Ooohhhh, how do you know that's what's happening?

Sirzy Wed 25-Dec-13 18:12:15

I don't think you should be doing it in public loos at all, certainly not those which are family orientated.

There again, I am not surprised a fast food 'restaurant' locally had to have the blue uv lights but in at one point to stop people injecting in there

YANBU

Use the ladies like everyone else.

GimmeDaBoobehz Wed 25-Dec-13 18:13:17

I know exactly what you mean. Found it in a loo on the train, it's ridiculous.

RedLondonBus Wed 25-Dec-13 18:14:09

Selfish druggies... They don't care where they do it,or how. The next fix is all that matters to them. Freaks the lot of em!

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 25-Dec-13 18:17:36

Because I tried to use the facilities and was passed on route by a gentleman coming out with white powder up his nose and didn't use them as he must have been pissed as it was all over the changing unit and loo lid.

As I backed out another woman was asking the staff to sort it out and she thought the same as me.

Blimey red full of compassion aren't you.

If I had yo spend Christmas day in a a family type restaurant. I assume you mean something like a Toby carvary, I would want heroin injected into my eyeballs just to cope with the experience.

Or maybe they just just ordered the bottomless coke?

WilsonFrickett Wed 25-Dec-13 18:24:49

I used to be find of the odd recreational drug but fuck sake there's a time and a place. And Christmas day at a Toby isn't it... Surely anyone who is doing that is in the grips of a compulsion and can't help themselves?

kelda Wed 25-Dec-13 18:27:02

Definitly not talcom powder?

hmm

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 25-Dec-13 18:32:36

Well I've never known talcum powder to be left places with weird line marks in it, but stranger things have happened. And it was quite obviously up the blokes who passed me nose.

NigellasDealer Wed 25-Dec-13 18:32:38

nobody who is into cocaine would leave it 'sprinkled around' it is too expensive. If it was on a baby change table it was probably talc.

NigellasDealer Wed 25-Dec-13 18:33:10

grin cross posted...well maybe so then....

Mitchy1nge Wed 25-Dec-13 18:33:23

that really does sound the perfect time and place, otherwise you might be tempted to eat the food there shock

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 25-Dec-13 18:34:41

In all fairness they did a bloody good job with the food

MyMILisfromHELL Wed 25-Dec-13 18:37:47

Cocaine is a disgusting drug. Yuck!

complexnumber Wed 25-Dec-13 18:59:14

You were in a Maccy on Xmas day weren't you! grin

Hose yourself down later and tell us more.

RedLondonBus Wed 25-Dec-13 19:01:44

Some poor person had to clean that mess up! Lovely

MadAsFish Wed 25-Dec-13 19:06:41

It's hardly much of a mess - a bit of powder. Comparable to what you can find in restaurant toilets, it's nothing. (I used to do it as part of my job many, many years ago).

I totally agree that it's horribly inappropriate but red - what a nasty attitude you have towards people who might really be struggling with life.

catgirl1976 Wed 25-Dec-13 20:20:49

Oooh QOTSA nn

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 25-Dec-13 20:48:46

It was not McDonalds.

It made me quite cross as it was the only loo that was accesable to me and some of my children.we ended up having to leave.

formerbabe Wed 25-Dec-13 20:55:41

Redlondonbus is right. Drug addicts are the most selfish people ever! Make me sick especially those who like to drop their needles in the street for people to tread on....merry Xmas by the way!

AnandaTimeIn Wed 25-Dec-13 22:17:05

I don't snort or inject anything (UGH!).

However, I would be partial to smoking a small joint in the loo of the train or on the way to the station back home from a family do at Xmas....

snorting coke at a family do is crass.

As for heroin..... (Yikes!)

Both those situations call for a family meeting.

Pigsmummy Wed 25-Dec-13 22:20:07

Always wipe down a baby changing unit. Sadly I know people who have recommended using the changing unit to do a line......

AnandaTimeIn Wed 25-Dec-13 22:29:25

Well, I hope you also wish junkies Merry Xmas....

Drug addicts are in the grip of an addiction which is a disease, so not just selfish...

Do they not have a needle exchange programme where you live?! WTF....

you should write to your local councillor/MP to highlight this problem instead of whinging about it

It IS an HIV/AIDS problem too you know...

LurcioLovesFrankie Wed 25-Dec-13 22:43:21

Actually, since DS picked up a used needle in the local bus station saying "what's this, mummy?" I have to admit I have completely run out of sympathy. Yes it's an addiction, but no I don't give a shit. My son is more important, the poor sods who have to do the needle patrols at the crack of dawn in the local parks are more important (I have a friend who works for the council - our town has a needle exchange scheme, and it doesn't appear to make any sodding difference at all). And funnily enough, the ex addicts I've spoken to actually agree that drug addicts are selfish. (I'd have shooting galleries and prescribed heroin and let them go to hell in a handcart without impinging on my child).

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 25-Dec-13 22:50:48

Yanbu.

ananda don't get me wrong, I have a lot of sympathy for people whose lives have been blighted by drug addiction. I don't consider drug addiction a disease anymore than I do nicotine addiction,which is of course also a drug.

It is a choice to do the drugs. And those choices can lead to awful, tragic consequences. I truly feel sorry for people addicted to such substances.

But why is it a disease to be addicted to heroin but not nicotine? Is it the illegality of the former that makes it so?

TheGirlFromIpanema Wed 25-Dec-13 22:57:14

I should imagine it was a recreational user rather than anyone in the grip of a serious heroin addiction hmm

Its annoying and inappropriate as well as dangerous if children are around.

I'd be having a word with the manager - they may have suspicions themselves and would likely kick anyone out if they suspected drug mis-use on the premises. We used to in the family pub I worked in. Any sign of it. Straight out. No reasons given. Just out.

of course it's selfish but to just label all drug users 'freaks' is a bit harsh.

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 25-Dec-13 23:16:40

Labelling people with addictions as "freaks" is definitely harsh, and dehumanising.

I don't do it myself and I don't think particularly well of people who do.

They're all someone's child.

I simply do not think it's a disease.

MichaelFinnigan Wed 25-Dec-13 23:23:24

She's ^ right though. No one would leave visible traces of powder about the place it's too expensive.

NigellasDealer Thu 26-Dec-13 00:01:39

Drug addicts are in the grip of an addiction which is a disease
no, leukaemia is a disease, for example, addiction is/was a choice

IneedAsockamnesty Thu 26-Dec-13 01:17:09

Pissed up people who take drugs in places like that are quite likely to be prone to all manor of strange behaviour.

FreudiansSlipper Thu 26-Dec-13 01:24:25

I have never known anyone to leave so much left over if drunk they would be more inclined to lick it off the toilet seat than leave it

but agree there is a time and a place

bootsycollins Thu 26-Dec-13 01:24:56

Just have a snort off a key surely confused
