* In ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', Carrot is staying at a brothel. He has no idea of his home's true nature. He also misses the point when he tells this to someone else, and they are impressed that he can afford it, and by his stamina.

* In ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', Carrot is staying at a brothel. He has no idea of his home's true nature. He also misses the point when he tells this to someone else, and they are impressed that he can afford it, and by his stamina. They don't charge him rent in exchange for his services as bouncer, which he also doesn't quite grasp. The offer included access to the place's usual services too, and it seems like the owners never quite figured out that he wasn't just being a gentleman in not taking advantage.
