One evening at Bridge Club, Dean lost a game he felt he should have been able to win. He was so angry, he stood up, kicked his chair hard, and loudly shouted "Bother and lemons to everything".

The committee had seen people get angry about losing a game before, but they had done nothing more than calm the person down, ask them to apologise, or perhaps write them an official warning for the worst offenders. But for Dean, the club committee instantly banned him from the club. Why did they treat Dean so severely?

Did he kick the seat he was sitting in, or the club's chairman?

Did 'bother and lemons' mean something more than it seemed?

Did 'bother and lemons' mean something more than it seemed? No

Wizardofnz:

Did he kick the seat he was sitting in, or the club's chairman? The latter ;-) That one didn't last long! Suspected it might not hence posted others at the same time ;-)

The committee didn't take kindly to violence against their chairman, so banned Dean on the spot
