As you leave my flat and wander into the small town that I live in you encounter two grocery stores, the first a small Co-op and the second a Tesco express.
Now I have nothing against the Co-op but as a preference I would lean towards Tesco as its a more modern store and generally the product choice is more suited to me.
How does this relate to the tease that I alluded to in the title? Now for this you have to be disabled!
The Co-op,you see, has these delightful plastic shopping baskets with easy grab handles and what have you, marvellous for the elderly thought I as I walked along the isle stopping at the milk. I added 2 pints of milk to my empty basket and identified the flaw, it’s so heavy that I couldn’t lift it with my kitten weak wrists once I added any shopping!
So we move onto Tesco and the saviour that is traditional wire baskets, carefully balanced I got the tare weight handled and then added groceries! Before long the limit was reached and aches took over so iPad, bagged my groceries and left victorious.
Now the wise among you will have spotted the next challenge, sadly I did not, the distance was too much! I had to stop repeatedly and by half way looked like a wrestler after 3 rounds, sweating, grimacing and in honesty nearly crying (frustration of course). I stopped at the pub in exhaustion for a diet coke before making the second and final leg home.
So theres the tease, can’t cary groceries around the local store but can’t cary them back from the other one !
