I got some roast mushroom pate reduced today, oh yes. Anyway yeah, shop people. Some of them ask eagerly about a particular purchase - 'I haven't tried that yet, is it nice?' sometimes if you haven't tried it yet either they look kind of heartbroken. A rarer sight is the fickle conniseur proprietor, who has a strange particular range of things, for instance only certain flavours of certain brands of crisps, based on his qualitative judgement presumably, and various innovations which aren't stocked for long. It's a different story when HE asks what you think of something, he's likely to tell you he isn't very impressed by it.
They should modernise Monopoly. Have new events like a Chance card that say 'the brown area has had a resurgence - it's now full of yuppies and Old Kent Road is worth as much as Pall Mall!' And why won't they fix the stupid Free Parking square? 'Free parking'? More like 'couldn't think of anything for the opposite corner to Go.' Ever 'Traffic Jam - miss next turn' would be better. There could also be a Daily Mail edition where all the taxes were the congestion charge and the cards said things like 'You win second prize in a beauty contest - I suppose that's not politically correct these days.' They'd have a field day with property values.
See ya around
