I’m sitting in a really lovely, modern, state of the art shopping centre on a Sunday afternoon, my day off and wondering what the f### am I doing here?
Families are walking by looking miserable, a dad walks out with a crying child in his arms, couples walk by in a trance, a woman walks by all dressed up pushing her twins in a trendy double buggy looking depressed.
An older couple walk by linking arms and the train rolls by with mothers on their mobiles sitting in the carriages with their kids who gaze out at the rest of us.
A parent chases a kid running with a balloon and a teenager walks by drinking her trendy health juice.
Cappuccino in hand, shopping bag in the other, more buggies, more couples, more parents, more mothers and daughters, more teenagers… Bargains, new stock, special offers.
That’s it, this is my day off … I’m out of here!!
The Grumpy old man..
