40+ Dangerous, Disgusting, Disturbing Things Berkshire Residents Stepped on
We've all been in this situation. You wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, or maybe you check on the little ones to make sure they're sleeping well etc. and then ouch! you step on that piece of glass that you thought was all swept up. Perhaps, you're a pet owner. You take a step and your toes land in a pile of puppy dookie. It's no fun to deal with these surprises in the middle of the night but as you know it happens and probably more times than you care for.
A few months ago, we asked a question on our local radio station Facebook pages which was the following:
