A question of manners

So, what is the correct response when your senior colleague comes into your office with a half-bottle of undrinkable Cava that he then proceeds to spray over your ceiling, walls, whiteboard, chair, and floor? Especially when his response is to giggle like a maniac? This was before 9am, by the way.

My office now smells of stale cava...

Cause for celebration? had been up all night? What??

His PhD student had successfully passed his viva the day before, and to celebrate he opened the bottle of plonk that had been in the fridge since 2004 (optimistically). The cork came out with a dull phut rather than a pop, so he was convinced that it was irretrievably flat. That was before he left the bottle in a warm lab overnight and then gave it a good shake.

No, I'm not sure why he did this, and I suspect neither is he.

Idiot. Fridges are not healthy long-term environments for natural cork.

I think that he knows this now, although I would be happier had he discovered the end effect in his own office.
