Thirst as an indicator of quality

I've written before about how good I think the British bee inspectors are. The inspectorate is part of DEFRA, the UK's department of agriculture, so you might expect a bit of resistance from those being inspected -- there rarely is.

In their most recent newsletter, one bee inspector has been thinking how best he can evaluate the service he is giving. Thirst is the indicator. If he returns home in the evening with a thirst, he is disappointed. Obviously he hasn't been offered suffficient cups of tea during his inspections and isn't being appreciated.
