Here's a true story related to me by my mother, which she says happened to one of her neighbors in a Venezuelan oil camp in the 50's:
It seems that a certain woman kept the ashes of her dearly departed father in a silver box on a table. One day, after not having looked at her "father" for a long time, she opened the box and was horrified to discover it was nearly empty! Furious, she accosted the maid and demanded to know, "have you touched this box?" Whereupon the maid protested "I didn't think you'd mind! After all, it's very poor quality snuff."
