    So, last night, we went out to a local Indian restaurant. All you can eat and half price beer.
    :beer::man_in_love::man_in_love::drink::drink:
    And thats all I remember. We must have got back to the van ok because we were there when we woke up.
    But, we both had awful headaches, felt nauseous and there was a strange gassy smell in the van.
    All my money had gone too!

    Had we been the victims of an overnight gassing?

    Yes you have. Tell the Daily Mail immediately who will then write an article blaming it on Rumanian immigrants. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    only if you think so.......

    Headache = 1/2 price beer

    Nauseous = 1/2 price beer

    Gassy smell = welcome to the indian aftermath.

    Money had gone = 1/2 price beer

    If you had a Rooby then the gassing was probably self inflicted during the night as you both let off wind (farted) :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Mrs A says she doesn't fart, but I never find the creaky floorboards she says she treads on upstairs!
    I think the gas they used was Madras Oxide.

    I think I was gassed last night as well.

    Remember very little about anything except waking up this morning with lots of empty San Miguel cans outside the van.

    Cheeky sods. Gas us and drink my beer.

    Gassing?

    Oh, yes!

    Last year on an Aire in France I spoke to a guy who knew a distant relative of his who'd had a chat with an elderly couple who remembered talking to a another Motorhome owner about him being gassed.

    The Motorhome owner had woken up very late one morning with a blinding headache and an obnoxious smell in the vehicle to find someone had broken into his Motorhome during the night and taken all his money from the wallet in his back pocket.

    His wife told him, as she washed the wine and brandy glasses in the sink, she thought they must have been gassed because she'd slept much longer than normal as well.

    Luckily their Alsation wasn't showing any sign of the obviously dangerous gas that had affected them although it had unfortunately left a large deposit in the cab area.

    Although his wife had convinced him that gas had been involved, certainly not the four bottles of wine and the litre of Brandy they had consumed, he had a few nagging doubts as she spent the following day shopping by herself in the local town despite pleading brassic only a couple of days earlier.

    So, there's your proof – and it could be you next being attacked by gas!

    I am quite surprised the gassing did not lead to a explosion:Rofl1:

    Reading the above posts it appears that the suggestion of being [HI]ga[/HI]ssed may have a 22/7 factor. Could that be a contribution to the spark retardance? :Laughing::Laughing::Laughing:

    Most have them to put on in case somebody knocks on the door before 10am. It is rumoured that a couple of pairs have actually been taken out of their packaging.

    We are not all sophisticated. The only time I wear pyjamas is when I am in hospital.

    You do have my sympathy! I have read all of the harsh comments about your situation and fully understand you. I have actually been gassed!!

    Later I found some teeth missing, very curious.
