Getting groceries is a horrible experience, and I procrastinate as long as possible. I wait until my family is all whining about their being no food in the house. I put off grocery shopping until we are completely out of bread, milk, and eggs, and down to our last roll of toilet paper. I order a lot of supplies online and have them delivered to my door. I hate leaving my perfectly comfortable house, where I am in charge of the thermostat and the music. Getting groceries is very time-consuming, requiring a thirty minute drive to the store, and nearly an hour of walking up and down the aisles. The store usually plays the worst music, the carts always have a bad wheel, and the temperature in the store is either far too hot or way too cold. I never have a clue how I should dress to grocery shop. In the middle of July, when the outside temperature is in the nineties, I expect the air conditioner to be running. Unfortunately, that commercial cooling system will often blast so much arctic air that I’d need a winter parka to survive it. In the middle of January, when the outside temperature is around twenty degrees, I need to bundle up to head to the store. Once I’m inside, however, the commercial heating system makes the store feel like a tropical jungle and I sweat profusely. It would be helpful if they could regulate the operation of the HVAC system and manage a comfortable setting on the thermostat. Instead, grocery shopping is pure torture.
