Please explain to me why someone would think its OK to do their weekly shopping at the petrol station. Last night I went to fill up at one of those places that has a mini supermarket attached not an actual supermarket with a petrol station if you know what I mean. I figure these places are for people who call in for petrol then think Oh while I'm here I'll grab a pint of milk and some bacon for tomorrows breakfast. But no, last night I had the misfortune to join the queue directly behind this woman who seemed to be doing her weekly shop there easily having about 4 full carrier bags worth of food in her three baskets. I had to stand there for at least 5 minutes whilst the one and only checkout bloke scanned each item, discussed each item in depth and then proceeded to pack her bags for her because she was too lazy to be doing this for him whilst he scanned it. To top it all once he had done this and asked for the £48.52 she then and only then decided it was time to search the depths of her hand bag for her purse to scratch around the bottom of that in order to count out every last penny so she could pay him the exact amount. By this time the queue was at least 15 deep. Now I was thinking this cant get any worse but how wrong I was. She finally sorted out her food shopping only to realise that she can buy a top up for her phone and buy some electricity for her meter at home. So yes you've guessed it, back into the depths of her handbag to find her purse again to pay her monthy bills.
What is wrong with these people? not only must it be costing them way more than a proper supermarket but dont they think 'hang on I'm holding everyone up here maybe I should have gone to a proper shop'. Then theres the case that their car has been blocking a pump all this time with a queue of cars waiting to fill their car up and get on with their day.
Heres my advice to anyone thinking of doing their shopping at the petrol station
2. Its cheaper at an actual supermarket
3. Go to an actaul supermarket, this is a PETROL STATION
4. If you do insist on doing this at least follow these rules
a) park your car in a parking space not at a pump.
b) Check that theres at least 2 people serving so you dont block the whole shop up
c) Dont stand by idly while the checkout person scans things, make yourself useful and pack your bags at the same time.
d) Make use of this time to also get you bloody purse out of your bag and have the money ready and waiting in your hand to pay him straight away
5. GET OUT OF MY FIRKING WAY.
phew I feel so much better now
