Ever been to a public indoor pool? ...
No, and from what I've read on EF, I probably never will.

and then 'tschuldige, sgüsi my way out of the queue, dash back through the store to wherever they'd hidden the stuff, grab it, run back and sgüsi my way up to the register again.)
That's when I play the "clueless, shameless foreigner" card - lots of smiles, lots of thank yous, and excuse me for my awful German. People are happy to help in my experience.

Honestly, I don't see where the problem is - the products in the aisles are placed in a certain way, so what? Actually, let me rephrase, while I understand that, from a marketing perspective, the placement of products in a certain way can increase sales, it always seemed pretty obvious to me that if I can't find, I ask.

I'm unsure whether I prefer the above experience or that of being barged out of the way by a grandma who has stuffed her Louis Vuitton bag into her cart......and will be paying for 80 francs of groceries with a 1000 note....
