No-one is safe from my prying eyes… I’m guilty as charged.
It’s not as creepy as it sounds – you probably do it too. I peer into people’s shopping trolleys and I judge them. Harshly.
Or I smile to myself and feel righteous. Isn’t that shameful? Will anyone else admit they do this too so that I don’t sound like such a freak? Please.
I know everyone isn’t as concerned with nutrition as I am, but if you’re in the supermarket and you’re grossly overweight and you’re piling junk into your trolley, don’t you deserve an icy stare. Perhaps a tsk?
OK the tsk was taking it too far. That’s just rude.
You know, I think this is coming out all wrong. I’m making myself sound evil. Let’s start again…
When I’m in the supermarket I can’t help but sneak a peek into other people’s baskets. I love to see what people are buying. Whether they’re getting ingredients for one night’s dinner, a weekly shop or no food at all, just cleaning products. It’s fascinating. Don’t you think?
I find it amusing to see women with 2 or 3 children in tow taking items out every so often. I used to try and sneak stuff into the trolley when I was a kid – chicos, nutella, funny faces, strawberry freddo frogs and ripe mangoes come immediately to mind.
I do seriously get concerned and/or upset when I see trolleys full of pre-packaged foods, frozen pies and 5L tubs of ice-cream. As food bloggers, we know how easy it is to whip up fresh meals, I wish others did too.
So do you have a ‘profile’ you apply to a person if they’ve got particular items in their basket? Perhaps organic produce rings a judgmental bell or 12 cans of Diet Coke makes you wonder…
Would love a vote if you get a chance. Go on, I’ll be your best friend….
