Things you would touch with a "Bargepole"

Recommended Posts

I read a post recently where @Bobr claimed he "would not touch it with a Bargepole" and because I work the night shift and I'm bored, I got to thinking.......what would you touch with a barge pole? 

The question is not aimed directlcy at you @Bobr and I hope you don't mind me naming you.

Not at all mate.   Look forward to some interesting answers.😂   Incidentally, what do you do on Nights?   I used to work nights myself.

 I'm an officer on a ship. So mostly I look out the window and make sure we don't bump into other ships and rocks!!

What do you work at? 

Although I'm a happily married man; I wouldn't touch my next door neighbours wife with a badge pole shes in rag order, 

Also mustard and my dog after walking him thismorning; as during the walk he rolled himself in another dogs ***** on purpose now he stinks like a horse 🤷‍♂️

Need to find out why he done that this is the second time,

So who's wife would you touch with a barge pole, @Lenny?? 

My dog prefers to roll in fox poo. Can't get enough of it, and it stinks. I think I heard somewhere it's a way to cover up their own smell so they can hunt better.

Cant say 😅 some aren't even married 

Perhaps it was fox poo as it was in a forest near our home; I went off the walk way for a bit to allow others to pass in a bid to maintain social distance then he was rolling in it 😲

He is a Bearnese Beagle Hound so that would make sense about the hunting

Do you get the barge pole out if you're getting a bit close to another ship? :biggrin:

All dogs do that.   I've had dogs all my life (I'm 83) and they have all done it.   Had a Border Collie once who was as good a gold but the times I had to chuck her in a pond were legion.   Her favourite was fish that had been dead for some considerable time. I certainly wouldn't have touched her with anything then.

I feed our lad a tin of John west boneless sardines in Sunflower oil twice per week mixed in with a cup of his dry food in the morning after his walk,

He absolutely loves it, helps with brain development aswell as keeping his joints and coat healthy. 

He does be sucking the lips off himself while I'm mixing the bowl 😂
