I have spent the last couple of hours shopping and realised that no one seems to want to “hold hands” any more. What is wrong with holding hands? People seem to be in a hurry – no one seems happy and seriously people are out to “get you”. I walked into a shop that was crowded. I stopped to wait for someone to come out past me. Instead a “larger” woman, with two kids and then a husband came into the shop. Stood in front of me and waited for the woman I was waiting for to leave and barged through. Not only that I tried to follow and her “family” were in the way. I couldn’t get past.
In the end I left the store and the store owner lost a sale. There is no blame but common courtesy should have prevailed in this instance but everyone’s in a hurry.
Shopping used to be fun, now I try and pick my times in an attempt to avoid people. That’s sad I think and disappointing also.
On the other hand I didn’t spend any money so I saved it for another when I hopefully will find something I need rather than want.
