The 10 Commandments of Grocery Shopping


Think I’m going to print this and keep copies in my handbag to hand out to offenders whenever I’m out shopping…. or discreetly leave it in their shopping trolley 🙂 Although I have to add an additional commandment which irritates me no end – Thou shalt not leave thy trolley in the middle of the aisle (or worse at a 45 degree angle in the middle of the aisle ARG) blocking everyone’s way to grab your most important item on the shelf that you cannot live a moment longer without.
