They'll have it on CCTV so the next time you come in it'll be presented to you.

Ha ha CCTV, you're going to be a BBC 1 programme. "This lady obviously had too much to drink the night before..."

No, don't confess, the rain will wash the vom away or else they'll think the plant has some wierd botanical disease grin

Hope you feel better soon, you should be home in bed

Definately switch to B&Q. At least you'd have been able to use an orange bucket. Now get yourself better.

hope you feel better though.

I spent most of Friday night throwing up in to a plastic bag, because I couldn't get out of bed quick enough. Then DH helpfully pointed out it had holes in the bottom of it . Alcohol may have been involved though.

You poor thing - though I did laugh grin

Switch to B&Q, and spend the rest of today with your feet up!! Feel better soon! x

No, it will have killed the plant. Puke is acid.

I would fess up and pay for it grin

depends..if its an azalea /rhododedron type thing they like acid soil....

you may have provided free fertilizer - they should pay you!

AvrilH Thu 20-Aug-09 12:05:10

yep, but DH describes my honesty as a fault and says it holds me back

Did you know I work for homebase?

Hmmm. Not sure where to take this from here. I may have to refer to head office for instructions.

We need to know what the plant was really. If it was a yucca or similar, then you can be excused on the grounds that they are an offence to the retina.

I bet you're the sort of person who lets their toddlers poo on the toilets in there though, aren't you? grin

"No, it will have killed the plant. Puke is acid." - that has just made me PSML for some reason.

Hunched over my desk quaking with laughter at the whole scenario, actually. Poor Shiney.

I had campylobacter poisoning once - went back to work before I was 100%. I threw up in my waste paper basket (no time to run to loo). Colleague looked at me very oddly and told me to go home.

I had to walk to the bus stop, about half a mile, and on the way I threw up again outside Allied Carpets. V embarassing, people looked at me as if I was a scumbag.

I don't think I would call teh shop, though. How the hell would that conversation go:

Shiney - i am not very well, I threw up in one of your plants earlier on, I am at home now
DIY OAP - errrm, oKAY then
Shiney - I don't want any one to accidentally buy it
DIY OAP - which plant was it.
Shiney - um the big tall thing with purple flowers, over by the miracle gro
DIY OAP - Right....
Shiney - ohmigodamgonnahurlagain <hear running and vom splattering noises in background>
DIY OAP - <slams down phone and complains to colleagues about freak callers>
