Speed Shopping

Tonight, I stopped in at the supermarket at about 10:40 to do our shopping for the week. I was under the misapprehension that the store closed at midnight. I was disabused of my error after I'd just finished choosing produce, when the PA said, "It is now 10:45 and our store will be closing in 15 minutes."

I still had well over a dozen items on my list, so I swung into high gear. As I finished unloading my cart (with all the items on the list) in the checkout line, the PA said "It is now 10:55."

In some ways, this was an ideal Guy shopping trip:
- I had a list
- I knew where everything was in the store
- The store was nearly empty
- And above all, I felt that it really mattered to shop expeditiously, so I got a sense of reward for getting out in jig time.
