Time for some fine Old Norse




Arsehole 
[from Old English ærs, = Old High German, Old Norse ars, Germanic arsaz, Indo-European órsos]

Apologies at the outburst and lowering of the tone. Sick of day-trippers leaving behind non-biodegradables and shit besmeared toilet paper in our otherwise beautiful woodlands. 

Take it the hell home with you. 

Jerks.

You've got it totally right! No apologies necessary!

Absolutely! That's been drilled into us as kids and I can't even throw a gum wrapper away. As a youngster I obeyed my parents, but later so much appreciated that I was taught this because I understood why!

I always find this behaviour particularly annoying here in Italy when the majority of Italians I have met seem to be obsessed with cleanliness within their homes so why not in the countryside!!!!
