Guinness Beer Phobia: Londoner Hayley Blakeney has a Guinness beer phobia. She tells the Daily Mail, ''St Patrick's Day is a real nightmare. I normally take the day off but I have to work because we're short staffed. I'm dreading it to be honest, whenever I get asked for a pint of Guinness normally I can get someone else to serve them. Everything about it makes me skin crawl,' she said. 'I don't like how thick it looks when it's poured and I can't stand the sight or smell of it. Even talking about it makes me squirm. I've never been diagnosed with a medical condition but it is definitely a phobia. I was about six or seven at a family party. I was running around when I knocked over a table where a pint of Guinness was standing and it knocked all over me. I just remember crying my eyes out and seeing my dress ruined. It must have traumatized me. People laugh when they realize I am a barmaid who refuses to pour a particular drink - but I can't help it, I just can't go near it.''
