Really? Today? I am already having a busy day ahead and they did it again! I just finished my weekly shopping tour and feel like quickly reposting an article from last year.
What can I say: It has to be done. But today I experienced again what I really cannot stand about it. It is not about the drive (20 minutes to Austria), about the time you are spending waddling through the aisles, lining up at the different counters and at the cash desk. It is not even about the whole procedure at the cash desk. I enjoyed it in the US when everything is packed for you. But no, not over here. When I arrive with my overloaded shopping cart I have to unload it while on the other end the whole stuff is accumulating and waiting again for me to be packed in my bags. Yes, I am sweating, yes I don’t like to be talked at during that time, but I am used to it and I stay calm – even if the line behind me is growing. I don’t mind the border procedure in order to get my stamp on the tax return form. No, I don’t struggle with those things.
But!!! I am a very quick person and like to get things done. I have my list and everything is written exactly in the order I walk through the supermarket. And then….. they changed the places of the products!
Perhaps that sounds ridiculous but that is the only thing I can lose my inner peace during shopping. I am almost reaching out blindly for my stuff. I want to get some pepper and when I look at my hands I see noodles. I really hate to search around back and forth. The problem is they don’t only change one segment… no, when they do it then the turn everything around. I could see it positively and enjoy it like discovering a new shop. But you know what: NO, I don’t! Hope to get this new order into my system because I want to have my next shopping list done in my quick way again.
I apologize in advance for not being around a lot today. That’s why my review will be coming up tomorrow. Have a lovely Friday and…. enjoy your shopping tours!
In Love and Light!
