Which is more horrifying:? 1.) Buying potted plants, bringing them home, not transplanting or watering them and leaving them to a slow death OR 2.) Cutting the crust off of freshly baked warm bread and only eating the inside?

Answer: 2
None of the above mentioned stories! It is much more horrifying when one forget to wipe one's reardom and then joins humanity in very close corners/train/bus/car/desk next to your co-workers! Believe it or not, is my suggestion.
