  1. Nothing out of the ordinary, just IKEA really.. Possibly the worst part is there are no short cuts to the checkouts, you are forced to visit every part of the shop before you can escape, a bit like rats in a maze really. Shopping for me is almost like a military operation, go in, get the job done and get out as soon as possible πŸ˜€

  2. I love the idea of “faces in the bag.” Buy it over the counter and bring one home to your wife, your brother… “Here, i got this for you! It’s news! it’s called, Joy!”

    • In a mall, this man waited till his wife and daughter joined him with coffee and muffin. Nothing changed much afterwards. They quietly sipped on their beverages and left. The urban middle class is in turmoil and it hurts when human beings are at loss of words, a laugh, a joy, a simple conversation missing here is tragic.

      • I have heard the term “consumer zombies” used to describe the general populace here in america. I’m afraid that in many cases it’s an accurate label.

        People are so consumed with the pursuit of what they have been conditioned to “believe” is happiness that they forfeit any hope of ever reaching contentment.

        If we do not awaken soon from this consumer delirium, the tragedy will take on new and far more dreadful meaning.

        • That is so true. The conditioning and the propaganda of capitalism has snatched away the mere essence of happiness. And your post points out well, our future seems bleak, the middle class is on the verge of collapse if not rectified in time and its high time.

          • Who knows? Perhaps it must get worse in order to get better. Seems irrational but, so much does today.

            “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall.. think of it, always.”
            Mahatma Gandhi
