Not being a consumer of the spiritous liquors I tend to order apple juice or sugar based carbonated water drinks when we are out. Virtually every time the beverages are delivered to the table mine has been defiled by a sadly limp plastic straw. This winds me up severely. Just because I choose not to part-take in alcohol doesn't mean I don't know to use a glass. Not only is a straw an insult. it also adds to waste stream. It would be an interesting and life threatening experiment to see the reaction of a rugby team being served their beers with a straw flopping around in it.
