to think it is normal to put sugar in THE CUP and not THE TEAPOT?

I saw a woman whilst out today, who added her sugar to her, granted individual-sized, teapot.

That's beresk, non?

It's odd but not berserk.

Valpollicella Tue 26-Jul-11 16:25:49

Where did you see that Chaos?

scampadoodle Tue 26-Jul-11 16:26:18

Maybe she was Moroccan & it was mint tea?

allhailtheaubergine Tue 26-Jul-11 16:26:31

Depends. Was it a specialist cafe?

arf @ Chaos trying again.

My DH did that last week at home by accident - but he was underpressure and a bit stressed at the time.

I laughed and called him an eejit.

perhaps she had dementia

ChaosTrulyReigns Tue 26-Jul-11 16:28:25

I was just out Valp.

Yes chaos that's very odd

< still trying to remember what siob is>

AgentZigzag Tue 26-Jul-11 16:29:37

It is berserk grovel!

What was the woman thinking?? shock

<<wrings hands>>

Thin end of the wedge...

AtYourCervix Tue 26-Jul-11 16:29:44

maybe she fancied trying something a little 'different' and 'risque'?

Wamster Tue 26-Jul-11 16:30:07

It would be berserk- and really rude and inconsiderate- had it been tea to share with others, but, as it was an individual pot, a little offbeat but not berserk.

Wamster Tue 26-Jul-11 16:32:14

But, admit it, it was when she got up and poured the milk over her head, jumped up and down 3 times and sang 'I will survive' to the tune of 'Angels' by Robbie Williams that your 'nutjob' antennae REALLY got set off.

TotalChaos Tue 26-Jul-11 16:33:35

unusual but if it's only you having the tea, why not?

KurriKurri Tue 26-Jul-11 16:33:46

Good grief, whatever kind of cafe were you in?


Sarsaparilllla Tue 26-Jul-11 16:33:52

My DP put milk in the tea pot once, I taught him the error of his ways!

AgentZigzag Tue 26-Jul-11 16:34:27

I disagree wamster, I think her intention was to corrupt.

She knew people could see her, and was following her sinister gameplan.

grovel Tue 26-Jul-11 16:34:40

Sugar would dissolve quicker/better in tea without milk.

SenoritaViva Tue 26-Jul-11 16:34:57

I would hate it if sharing the pot (hate sugary tea). Maybe with lumps a whole lump is too much so she thought she'd 'dilute' by putting it in the pot?

KurriKurri Tue 26-Jul-11 16:35:10

How many more threads???? <rolls around laughing> grin

HPonEverything Tue 26-Jul-11 16:35:50

bit strange but maybe she has OCD about having the exact same amount of sugar for all tea she pours from a particular pot? I can sort of understand it in a way blush

my brother used to make tea by putting the milk and water together in the kettle and boiling them up together - now THAT's weird

CuttlefishDramas Tue 26-Jul-11 16:37:40

Was it a spoonful of sugar, or a sugar cube? I don't know why, but I feel this makes a difference.

allhailtheaubergine Tue 26-Jul-11 16:40:43

Hpon - didn't it spew out of the spout when it boiled?

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 26-Jul-11 16:42:17

It's irregular, granted, but in an individual pot for one person ... fine by me.
