fresh glass?

    When you're drinking at the bar in a pub, and the bar person asks:

    "would you like a fresh glass?"

    I can't think of a more useless question to ask, and all I can't think about replying with is:

    -Yes please, I think if we keep passing the glass between us all night, we might eventually work up a significant enough culture of E.coli to hospitilise me.
    -Oh you little minx, you know that's my lucky glass... get away with you...
    -Just give me a fresh one you lazy git

    ...just all so unlogical

    Some people (like me) aren't that bothered and will drink 3 or 4 pints out of the same glass before requesting a fresh one!
     
  3. "Unlogical"? You've just made that word up.
    I usually ask for a fresh glass, although the pubs I normally drink in just give me one anyway.

    I'm not really that fussy myself, but if you think about it, here are the steps:

    -you get a glass of lager, handled by a bar person who hasn't washed their hands after the toilet
    -you go to the toilet and do the same
    -that same bar person is doing the same all over again with all the other glasses

    Not saying that I've ever been made ill by it, but I'm sure it contributes to hangovers, and I'd just much rather have a fresh glass and not have to confirm something so obvious.

    That's ridiculous.

    a) they'd have to touch the rim of the glass, which is unlikely.

    :rolleyes: if they are prone to touching the rim, then they're likely to do it to your fresh glass, thus negating the whole point of getting it!

    So when you are drinking a bottle of wine, you wash your glass after you have drunk each glass -seems a little OCD to me.

    dunno, I'm not that hygenic myself in general, but maybe this little observance stops me from going over the edge into unhealthiness

    I presume you are talking physical health there - you seem to have lost the mental health battle already :rolleyes:

    I get it. Funny.

    Anyhow, I'm just saying that I'd prefer a fresh glass than a dirty one... if for nothing else than peace of mind.

    What am I arguing about here by the way? It was just an obvious rant.

    Might save a lot of angst just to go home after the first glass, Abitrary.
