Super Awkward

17Apr18

I almost shouted something embarrassing in Asda supermarket yesterday. As I walked in, a lady carrying shopping and some clothes she’d bought was in the queue at the checkout. The “Happy To Help” man behind her in the green uniform tapped her on the shoulder and pointed out that there was a free checkout further […]

The British government and their friends, the large supermarkets, are encouraging the destruction of the planet and are charging YOU for the privilege.

Even the so-called 24 hour supermarkets close at 4pm because of laws that were brought in to appease Sabbatarian Christians. If you’ve ever had to go supermarket shopping […]


I’m not a Sabbatarian Christian so why do I have to run around and make sure all of my supermarket shopping is done by 4pm on a Sunday? Supermarket shopping on Sundays in England is made more stressful thanks to the Sunday Trading Act. It should be called the PREVENTION of Trading Act because it’s […]


Two of the biggest things that influence women come from their childhood. They are the story of Cinderella and a belief in fairies. The Cinderella factor explains why they hate housework and have an obsession with shoes. Their belief in fairies is the reason they take so long to drive off after filling up with […]


Some people shouldn’t be allowed to work with the public. I was in my local supermarket the other day and noticed a sign in their pharmacy that said, “Flu jabs £7”. There was no one in there so I walked in and asked for one. “You have to book” said the heavy set woman of Eastern European […]
