    Why oh why did I go to Asda this afternoon?!!!

    *Sits in corner rocking backwards and forwards hugging self tightly*

    Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda? Why did I go to Asda?

    It was like shoppers hell. I only wanted some stuffing, potatoes and bread! Supermarkets shouldn't allow that many people in at once!

    I went to Morrisons yesterday and Tesco today and it's was though there is about to be an apocolypse!

    Everyone just seems to go into pre-historic survival mode and it's quite scarey to be honest!

    It's this time of year when I like to take advantage of 24-hour opening hours!

    That's why they invented online shopping and also why smaller shops are also good ie corner shops.

    My eldest started working at Sainsbury's about a month ago. She's on shift from 10am - 6pm tomorrow and dreading it.

    Ditto here. Trying to get past a queue of people at the till to get to the adjacent aisle and some young woman piped up "Oi bi*** are you f***** pushing in? F*** off!" to my wife. In front of my son. (I was sensibly, in the car with my daughter). Wife said no, she's trying to get down the beer aisle but she wasn't having any of it. Security soon threw the silly moo out.
    But generally it was chaos - car park antics ahoy (sitting waiting for someone to pull out and some git pulls in instead of you!) and lots of general moronicity. Season of good will? I suspect that must be a Waitrose thing!

    Tomorrow is usually a bit quieter. People like to stay at home/visit relatives to drop of presents etc on Chrtsmas Eve. TBH, I'm off to the local Sainsburys for a quick visit to get some baguettes and see what is on discount (Xmas pud and cheesboards are a good bet) in the afternoon

    Which is why I put an order in at the butcher and greengrocer for the in-laws. She can go down tomorrow, go to the front of the queue, get her stuff, and job done

    Nice to see that you phoned the order in but get someone else to do the actual shopping
