Bleak Sabbath

PrimarkThese queues in Primark are not the normal day long wait you get there, whatever you are going to buy.

This is before they opened on Sunday Dec 2. The two queues had a total of around 100 people waiting until Sunday trading laws allowed them to make their purchases.

Shops throughout the UK were in similar limbo. No-one allowed to serve until 11am. If the suggestion that these shops could have eight or even ten instead of six hours to open on Sundays in December, life could be a fraction easier for everyone.

More employment would be needed, more would be bought or we could all get home a bit sooner. Queues would be shorter too.

Or since we all hang around to drink coffee nowadays we could do that. Or just have a lie in. Quiet why we tolerate it I don’t know.
