new social minefield

Nancy Mitford gets an update:

'The modern equivalent of saying 'toilet', 'serviette' or 'pardon' is leaving your television on stand-by, driving a Chelsea tractor, arriving' at Waitrose without your own heavy-duty carrier bags, popping into Starbucks without your own reusable mug, walking past the shelves selling organic, Fairtrade and free-range, or flying long-haul when you don't really need to (and without offsetting your carbon footprint). I tell you, it's a social minefield out there.'
