TRADE at a town centre shop was severely affected on Saturday - all because of a thoughtless reveller.
David Welch, who owns Surfers Paradise, in High Street, had the onerous task of cleaning up vomit from his doorway and a window before he could open up.
He told the Midweek Herald that a Friday night reveller had "decided the shop doorway and window was a good place to be sick"
And the clothing shop owners had a message for the culprit: "If you cannot handle your drink, then don't bother drinking!
"Next time, at least use a toilet - or don't have that last drink"
Mr Welch added: "The smell and mess took 10 minutes to clean up and left such a stench that it stunk out my shop, something that was not exactly condusive to attracting customers.
