Decisions Decisions Decisions!
I walk down the isles at the supermarket and I see ten versions of the same product.
You want tissue paper? well there’s many many many items to chose from, 2 ply, 3 ply, with lotion, without lotion, with anti bacterial lotion, with scent, without a scent , square box, oval box(yes, oval!) and on and on and on. How can you fill a whole isle with tissue box products? In Amman they make your life easy, you go to the supermarket and you say,:”Can I have Fine please?” (By the way are there any other prodcuts in Amman?)
This not only applies to tissues, it applies to anything and everything here in Canada, you want a can of corn? Oh buddy there would be 3 shelves of different kinds of corn.
I have to admit, it needed getting used to when I first got here where I would go shopping for 4 items and end up spending a whole hour just reading labels to decide between do I need this detergent that has those super magical dimanond crystals that makes your clothes look better on you (heheheh) or just Tide.
But now I love it! There is something for everyone…. although I also have to admit that sometimes I just want to buy a melon!
