    If you can link to the ad in question, we'll name and shame him... Can't stand assholes like that. *DO* what you say, or STFU!

    If I don't take a glass of water to bed I can guarantee that at some point in the night I will wake up gasping with thirst like a man who has just crawled a hundred miles across the desert.

    But if I do take a glass of water it will usually remain untouched. Except when I had the cat and he would sometimes drink from it.

    So what's that all about?

    I hate returning defective goods.

    Stores usually take them back no questions asked, but the process itself is such a drag.

    I took some goods back to Tesco yesterday. It took about two minutes to get the amount credited back onto my debit card.

    What I do object to elsewhere is being asked to sign a receipt for a refund to my card. I didn't have to sign anything to buy whatever it was!

    More seriously, mate, if that's happening you're not drinking enough fluids or eating too many salty foods.

    Snoring with mouth open. I.e. On back can cause it. Smoking doesn't help neither does alcohol

    But if I take a glass of water to bed, I don't need it. Which sort of kills all those theories.

    I do like my salt though.
