Most annoying things abut supermarkets

The French Log Experience

Buy a French Log. The long bag it is in is always shorter than the actual length of the bread itself. The end sticks out. Waiting for it to slide out and fall to the floor. This probably happens just as you are at he checkout. During Covid some places had the bag made bigger so that all of the log was covered. No touching.

But by and large it is back to normal now because we all want to buy bread that other people have handled.


I used to blow a fuse when I was in a queue and the cashier left his/her station to do something. Maybe get a bar code sorted. However I have got over that. Not his or her fault. Could be me that they have to leave their station.

But that French log.

Being left looking around the place for 5 minutes when the self service machine asks for a member of staff.

People, generally middle aged women, who stop to either look at something on the shelf, or stop to chat to someone and park their trolley sideways across the aisle, blocking it.

Ye eh no that has never annoyed me. People walking around with them sticking out of thetr arm or trolley might do. I hate when something is at a shelf that should not be there especially at the special shelfs. I always put it away.
