Re: The Swiss Sport of Grocery Shopping

You need to come and experience the posh parts of Switzerland! I saw once in Manor a woman who had hired some poor guy who was carrying a giant crate of every luxury item she was selecting, from Caviar to whole lobster...
Why couldn't she get a trolley? Perhaps she thought some of the fur of her fur coat would get caught in the coin slot or something?


As for the checkout, I hate it when people are pushing their items, crushing yours in the process, when there is obviously no space left on the conveyor. I once took the "next" bar (or, it sounds so much better in French: "client suivant"!), put it right under the nose of the rude guy behind me and said: "See this, it shows you have to stay behind it!" and proceeded to let it slide on the floor at least 5 meters back!! Some Swiss were actually laughing, he didn't say anything, probably too shocked by my rude behaviour.
Well...was he buying croissants? By any chance?

You crushed him.
