I was in Sainsbury's this morning, standing in my allotted space, waiting to enter the conveyer belt zone which leads to the payment area, smiling at the woman in front of me - two meters away, Natch!
She was making faces back at me, rolling her eyes etc., because the person paying had obviously gone in for a chat and the queue was starting to look alarmingly long. When it was her turn she fumbled with quite a few items because she was wearing disposable gloves which I think were a bit slippery but of course nobody could help her.
Suddenly she started to wail, 'My bag. Where's my bag? I can't find my bag!' I felt sorry for her distress because it's every woman's nightmare. I suggested she go back to the aisle she had last been in. Obviously her stuff would be OK on the conveyer belt.
As she started to walk past the queue I pointed to her back and shouted, 'Is that it?'
The whole queue burst out laughing. Thankfully, so did the woman. She said it was her first time out and she'd been so focused on remembering her mask, glasses on or off, gloves or no gloves, hand gel, not touching her face etc., that she'd forgotten she'd converted her bag into back pack mode before leaving the house so she'd have both hands free to deal with everything.
She certainly gave us all a welcome moment of hilarity.
