Default She threw my bottles away!

I just came back from Christmas vacation to find that the cleaning lady had thrown out the cases of empty bottles under my desk at work (yeah, I have empties from departmental parties).

Nooooooo!!!!!! You take the effort to wash and reuse bottles and then someone tosses them. **shakes fists at sky**

Bender: I was thinking Benderbrau if it's an ale, Botweiser if it's a lager.
Fry: I hope it's a lager so I can take it to a ball game.

THAT SUCKS!!!! I'm fairly new at homebrewing and at this point, empty bottles are like gold to me.

Nooooooooo!!! I share your pain, my friend. I've spent hours washing the labels off bottles, and to have all that work come to nothing, oh, the agony!

My last workplace the deal was without a "TRASH" tag the cleaners wouldn't throw anything out, except the wastebaskets.

Maybe she brews and needed bottles?

She throws your bottles out...you throw her out. It's only fair.

The presumption here is that she is not a fellow brewer.

Would I be your... Reinemachefrau?


Ja, you could, uh... you could be that.

- Reinemachefrau.- Rrrreinemachefrau.


It means she could be my... cleaning woman.
