Nah, he was going to be a problem and needed to go. I'd had a quiet word with him the previous day and politely explained the local customs. He wasn't having it:

I'd say either a Troll or Nuts, either way better to have a nice lie down

I taught you something?

But yeah, you're right. Sometimes though, people need more facts to help make their own judgments...
