066 - Inappropriate Categories
My faithful readers will know that I am a great admirer of shoppers who categorise their items so as to facilitate easy negotiation of the supermarket. What I despise, though, are shoppers who try to convince me that they are categorising items when in fact all they're doing is GETTING IT WRONG. "Dairy: Milk, Bread". BREAD?! In dairy? No. And how about this: feeding "Cheese strings (ordinary - 2 packs)" to "Baby". What kind of a monster is this parent? posted at 14:19
This site is made possible by the kind people who abandon their shopping list at the end of a trip to the supermarket. I collect those shopping lists. You might refer to these as grocery lists, which strikes me as a bit strange because not all the items on the lists are groceries. Anyhow, I won't worry myself about it if you won't.
For those of you who have asked why I do this, please just be content with the fact that I do. I saw a list lying abandoned in a trolley once, and thought, "I'll have that". So I did.
Each shopping list I find is added to my collection along with comments about each list, which usually consist of me spouting on about the possible personality of the person who wrote it. I'm quite harsh at times, at others I feel a pang of compassion. Sometimes I just don't know what items are. Hopefully it will aid your procrastination.
