Recycled tissues are back in the mainstream supermarkets, if my local is any judge. Naturale 100% recycled. I’ll stock up.
Sadly the Continental brand chicken sauce I (and the kids) like seems to have vanished completely. It seems to have morphed from two jars into one, and adopted the dodgy-sounding brand name Indian Tonight.
Last night On Sunday night (after finding my precious recycled tissues) I was queuing with my roughly 25 items and my trolley at the normal checkout. A supermarket lady said I could go over to the Express Lane. The “8 items and less” lane. The no trolleys lane.
I must have sounded doubtful. “OK, if you’re sure…”
Great. So there I was clogging up the Express Lane with a hulking great trolley. I could feel the glares on my back from those people with 8 items and less and in a basket. I felt like turning around and imploring them not to judge me. “Please… I didn’t want to bring my trolley down the Express Chicane… they told me to do it… Honestly!”
No words were exchanged. Maybe they glared, maybe they didn’t. I probably would have. Maybe I’ll know better next time.
