Looking and seeing

It’s Monday morning and unusually for me I’ve just done the weekly family shop.

Wandering down the aisles people are in a daze. Going slower than the usual Saturday crowd.

Is this just Monday morning shoppers? There wasn’t a big match last night – Wales played Tonga on Saturday.

Actually, over the weekend the supermarket was completely reconfigured, bringing it up the standard of their other stores. And introducing new lines, cabinets and layouts.

But people couldn’t find what they were looking for. It wasn’t where they expected to see it.

Sometimes we just don’t see things because they’re not where we’re expecting to find them. And we get grumpy.

But maybe there’s more to see and this is part of the transformation.
