Why do people feel the need to be hauling a bottle of water or a huge coffee around everywhere? - it seems that to be "right on" you have to do the "coffee walk" into work each day looking like a cross between a blind beggar and Mrs Overall....MP's are right into this too.

This is a question of a fashion which started in the USA where self conscious/insecure people abound (self-help suggestions making lots of money) - it matters to ostentatiously carry something that is assumed to be a proprietary item and to have cost money - the aim is to be part of what used to be "the in crowd", later simply being "cool".

This is a question of a fashion which started in the USA where self conscious/insecure people abound (self-help suggestions making lots of money) - it matters to ostentatiously carry something that is assumed to be a proprietary item and to have cost money - the aim is to be part of what used to be "the in crowd", later simply being "cool". Quite apart from the waste/mess created by the vessels used, most of the time during which it is carried the tea/coffee is way too cold to be enjoyed as a drink, if that ever was the point in the first place (the cups are very often disposed of part full, often parked somewhere once the owner's hand/arm becomes too tired).

I have long intended to make a counter statement by carrying around an open tin of sardines but, like many other plans, this one is still pending execution.
What a load of cobblers Karl - a fashion statement!!
A discreet hip flask, filled with a 50/50 mix of water and whiskey can be carried without undue ostentation.
With you KARL. I was going to carry a tin of beans. :))
It's people with a coffee in one hand and a mobile in the other at which they are staring/scrolling/texting and not looking where they're going and are oblivious to the fact that I've just had to move over to let them pass that drive me round the bend.
