There are a lot of small, inexplicable irritations that occur in our lives on a daily basis. As you probably know (if you’ve been following this blog) I have been serializing them in my ‘Why is it that?’ Series.
So today, I am pulling out an old classic – a chestnut, which affects me anytime I go shopping anywhere around the world.
Picture The Scene: The Supermarket
So I’ve just
wasted spent 45 minutes trying to find a parking space, and sifting through endless aisles of food in search of my refrigerator’s ‘bare essentials.’
Despite promising myself (each and every time) that I will get a more interesting variety of foods upon my next visit – I end up leaving with the same 5 items which permanently reside in my threadbare refrigerator……..Brown Bread, Philadelphia Cheese, Cucumber, Tabasco Sauce – and of course – a large stash of Diet Cokes…..
So there I am – flustered, frustrated, irritable and ready to make as swift an exit as possible.
And then it hits.
Probably the hardest, most stressful decision for any prospective shopper…..
Which Queue (or Checkout Line) should I join?…..
