there are two major chain stores that i do my grocery shopping at: tesco and dunnes. however, there is a tiny little shop without a lot of product around the corner from my apartment called mullans.
today it was pouring rain. and hailing. and darn it i was hungry but without groceries. so instead of a 15 min walk to either dunnes or tesco, i ran through the rain across the street to mullans.
i love ireland because the lady that works there is just the sweetest. while checking out she managed to find the time to call me 4 precious names.
- “how are you today love?”
- “oh thanks pet.”
- “do you need a bag sweetie?”
- “2 euros change, thanks a million honey bunch.”
um wow. if that doesn’t just make your day brighter i don’t know what would. california cashiers, please treat me like this when i return.
if you’re lucky enough to go grocery shopping in ireland, you’re lucky enough
