Bottle Bank Confessions....

... you always get at least one down at the bottle bank emptying out loads and loads of bottles and they just feel they have to explain why they've got so many!

"told gran she should lay off the booze"

"they're not mine I'm dropping them off for a friend"

"it's not wine bottles, it's sauce jars"

why do people feel the need to explain themselves at the bottle bank to complete strangers?!

By the way I dropped off 12 wine bottles.... not sure how I accumulated so many in such a short space of time, but I wasn't going to explain myself to the crusty wino who was just dropping off sauce jars!

Do you feel the need to explain you offloading of bottles?

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

Nah, why should I tell everyone else my business.
I just drive to the bottle bank, open the boot and get out the two bin liners full of bottles and deposit in the required coloured bins Big Grin

I never explain why I have so many wine bottles for the bank....basically because I figure that most people with an ounce of common sense would know that you only visit the bottle bank when you've collected enough bottles to make it worth the trip!

Although Dol......I have noticed that you spend rather alot of time at the bottle bank disposing of your empties....it's okay though you don't have to explain...I understand you're helping out all your elderly neighbours by depositing their wine bottles too aren't you.... Wink

No, I never explain the volume of bottles I am chucking. I do it at 2:30am when there is no-one else around so that they won't know what a lush I am..... Smile

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

On a mooch around the board I found this little gem - and following on from explaining away your drinking habits to crusty old lushes - who actually enjoys putting bottles in teh bottle banks??

OH I DO with a passion - I am such a fuss pot
  • I empty the car with about 50 or so bottles. [not worth my while otherwise]
  • I then line them up beside the colour bin it should go in, brown, green or clear.
  • I then pick up about 4 - 6 bottles at a time and throw them with all my might into the bank. I sometimes do two-handers.
  • I score myself 1 point for a smash and minus a point for a non-smash.
It is one of life's little pleasures.Smile

I always cook with wine, and sometimes I actually put it in the food.

Oooh I think I might try this next time I visit the bottle bank, I've got a good selection of different bottles being collected at the moment(sister and hubby visited last week and mum and dad visiting next week, many bottles emptied)

I think we should get a bottle bank league going :w00t:
