: The saying goes, "don't shit where you eat." What does it mean and where does it come from?

---------

I think it advises against affairs at work. A Yorkshire version is "Never shit on tha own doorstep". A politer version is "Don't make honey where you make money". I can't give you an origin for the phrase, but will have a little search if and when time allows. Or maybe the alternatives above will help others to help with this. A limited contribution, I'm afraid. (GC)
