    I just looked on eBay and like Simon says our colonial cousins want silly money for them. I was surprised at the wide range of hotel ashtrays that are available for sale though. People will nick anything!

    Not bad, think they had some under the counter as well. Frankly it's become a thriving part of their business but not aren't ,making as much as the guy on FB reselling at x4+.47061439_2384809494881375_3564333469926424576_o.1.jpg

    Were they cheaper 'under the counter' Simon?

    Once i had an entire cast iron fire grate away from a pub because someone said it couldnt be done. I met the landlord in the road as i brought it back to him. I ditched the party to take it back.... The idea of huddling around it in a night club was never going to fly.... We agreed that i was a very daft lump but a decent egg for bringing it back! Student days obviously... Perhaps rugby boys and beer were also involved.

    Most simple theft is just about audacity.... Once that penny drops the barrier to lifting ridiculous items falls away and foolish high jinx ensues.... Ahem... All grown up now. Ish.
