Storm Ciara is on the way so as we're often susceptible to power cuts I thought I'd better stock up with candles while in Tesco this morning.
I headed off to the aisle where they sell firelighters, matches etc.. That's where you'd find ordinary household candles surely?
After trekking up and down various aisles I asked a shelf stacker where I could find candles. I resisted the temptation to do a Ronnie Barker and ask for four candles because she looked far too young to know what I was on about and definitely wouldn't think there was a joke in there somewhere.
'Oh yes.' she said. 'They're in the clothes section.'
I told her I'd looked where I thought they'd be and would never have gone to the clothes section in a million years.
'I know,' she said, 'But they're right at the end of the clothes section and nobody knows where that is so if I say clothes at least people go in the right direction. There's no aisle number there, you see?'
I knew exactly what I would find when I got there. Scented candles of every size and description. Not a plain old shove it in an empty wine bottle type to be seen.
I CBA to ask again so I bought some tea lights instead.
