A restaurant diner who sent a bottle of wine back claims 'there's really nothing to it' and that he's quite prepared to do it again.
Joe Hollyhead (32) was dining out with his wife when the waitress poured wine for him to taste from the bottle of red he'd ordered.
'I tasted it and was just about to say that it was fine - as one does - when I suddenly thought, hang on Joe, I don't think it's fine at all and I'm bloody going to say so. I don't know what came over me,' said Mr Hollyhead.
'I don't know what came over him,' said Mrs Hollyhead. 'Usually he just smiles sheepishly at the waitress and doesn't even bother to taste the wine. It's embarrassing. When he picked up the glass, had a sip, and sent the bottle back I was flabbergasted, but proud.'
Since that momentous evening Mr Hollyhead has embarked on a complaint feeding frenzy.
'He's had a go at the Tesco check-out girl,' said Mrs Hollyhead. 'And yesterday he said he didn't think my Sunday roast was up to much. It sent a shiver down my spine when he complained. It was lovely.
'Then he insisted we take some socks back to M&S and he did it all by himself. Honestly, he's a new man.'
Mr Hollyhead is now unfazed by all the fuss and advises others to follow in his footsteps.
'There's nothing to it,' he says. ' Once I'd declined the fifth bottle as tasting like French piss, it was plain sailing.'
