Fowl treatment or wot?((

following a free steak...much niece refused to allow me to carry a box of pelleted chicken manure in her nearly new Audi.  My feathers were mightily ruffled 

I could smell nothing.  She said it "stank".     I asked the young guy at the til if he could smell anything....."bit strong" he said and lurched back.  A customer behind me said it was "ponging".   It smells like a perfumed rose said I 

anyway in no mood to chicken out I caught the bus instead.  Luckily I got a seat to myself as the smell got stronger and stronger. 

Have I been unfowly treated? 

(More importantly the manure was half price so I am clucking happily but I do wishbone my niece was more understanding 

Who was being unreasonable?    Fowl play or not?

Whispering miscanthus in late summer.   Endless banks of it  by the river locally create a magical sound.
