Many years ago when I used to waitress I remembered a night I couldn't stop going to the bathroom. I worked for Greek people and was in the process of telling one of them that I thought I would have to leave due to this. This manager was always joking around so when he told me to put oregano in the tea I had starting drinking I thought he was kidding. He was very serious and went to the other side of the kitchen to get some and put a pinch in my tea. I don't know if it was a culture thing but it worked and I was thankful and surprised! I had forgotten all about it till I read this. Maybe I should carry some with me now.
