A MAN will not ‘take any shit’ from people and organisations that do not appear to bear him any ill will, it has emerged.
Roofing contractor Norman Steele is in a constant state of readiness to repel shit from sources as diverse as his GP, online retailers and local McDonald’s staff.
Steele said: “I don’t take any shit from my boss. He’s never actually given me any in the 10 years I’ve worked there because he’s a very reasonable guy, but I am ready for hypothetical shit.
“It’s the same with my doctor. I told her I needed something for a chest infection and straightaway she said, ‘Yes, antibiotics should do the trick.’ I think she sensed I wasn’t taking any shit.
“Word has clearly got round that I won’t be intimidated because I can go for months without deliberate provocation like being given a slightly dirty spoon in a cafe.”
Friend Tom Logan said: “I think he’s a bit of a drama queen to be honest because I’ve never heard of the government sending people round to ‘give you shit’ for not eating your five-a-day.”
