I would report it and get them to check their cctv

oh yes, and make sure they contact crime stoppers to see if they can show it on their next broadcast - these "vomit vandals" must be stopped!

Apparently it is a new type of fertiliser.

EccentricaUsesTheDMForBogRoll Thu 20-Aug-09 19:15:16

are you sure it is vomit? perhaps some sort of organic fertiliser?

I phoned the store to complain, the woman was ever so sympathetic - told me some horror story about some jeans she bought in Sainsburys last year. She had tried them on the day before but realised she had no purse on her, so went back next day to buy them, when she got them home they were full of SH*T.

what is the world coming to!

That is high grade azalea fertiliser, not vomit, you numpty.

fertiliser? since when did fertiliser have bits of carrot in it?

I hear that there are great advances in DNA technology these days, send a bit of puke in a plastic bag to the local constabularly, then sit back and wait for the results with a cup of tea and a nice choccy biccy, eg a penguin.

That is possibly the most disgusting thing I've ever heard...I feel quite traumatised and reading it has done nothing for my morning sickness.

I agree with StealthPolarBear - sue for emotional distress!

StealthPolarBear Thu 20-Aug-09 19:54:39

shiney you're looking a bit green round the gills...

StealthPolarBear Thu 20-Aug-09 19:55:36

gypsymoon, when you're feeling slightly less queasy, have a look here

and apologies if I've got the wrong end of the stick again - seem to be doing that a lot recently

GrimmaTheNome Thu 20-Aug-09 19:58:42

If it wasn't you, Shiney, does that mean there's an epidemic of plant-induced vomiting virus now? grin

(disappears thinking about headlines about the oddly-named Shine Flu)

StealthPolarBear Thu 20-Aug-09 19:59:24

oooh I hope this is real! Doubt it though...

Oh I am crying grin
