I'd kill myself within a few weeks with no company.
Aldi or Lidl would be boring it would have to be a Tesco for me.
Reckon loads of you are putting yourselves down!!! 2 years?! AQA said 25 years.
I'd spend my days dismantling the tills and taking out all the laser barcode readers. Then i'd hook them up into some kind of crazy rave disco, stick a bit of NOW on the stereo. Then could quite happily dance it up for a while. Then i'd probably make my way over to the tvs and just watch films and eat icecream until I was sick.
leave a tesco store in the island in 'lost' you'll find out =)
Depends how greedy you are really and how much you care about eating gone off food. Yum.
oh...my god!!!! wow there's a thread on this, honestly...this is my like ultimate fantasy, getting locked in tesco!!! if theres ever a threat of nuclear bomb or severe weather thingy im going to tesco! i'd probably eat all the cream cakes first, then the like fresh meat and stuff...save all the pasta and rice and tins til last. our tesco has a sofa with a tv infront of it... =D dvd time! woooh. ok i think im more of a loser than you, feel free to say!
p.s i didnt answer the question, probably tens of years at least. til you got food poisoning off the tins!
If theres been a nuclear bomb, how do you have power/how is the water or air supply not contaminated.
I like being difficult, but in a perfect scenario (clean air, power, water clean) i would expect quite some time, although the solidarity could make you go crazy. I dont think there would be a problem with vitamins tho, you have tablets in the pharmacy department or toiletries.
As long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive. I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give, I will survive. I will survive! Hey heyyy.
i would build a moon rover type thing out of all the electrical appliances and then roam the earth in my radioactive proof suit - fighting demons with my vegetable peeler.
alternatively I would go to the mobile phone section and CALL FOR HELP.
I'm surprised we're only just thinking of freezing the fresh fruit and veg. That was the first thing I'd do.
If we've got clothes, I'd put mannequins in the window [or stuff the clothes with plastic bags] and do something with them to make it obvious that I was trapped in a supermarket, so if anyone found it, they'd know I was stuck in there.
I'd raid the duvets and cushions and pillows to make a mega-cosy bed.
I'd set up an obstace course around the wider aisles, and vary it, so that I had something fun and active to do.
I'd make pretend friends out of clothes/mannequins/etc, and send announcements to them over the speaker system, and pretend the shop was running as normal, but with me in charge. I'd have them sat in the coffee shop with cups of tea, and serving on the counters and tills, and looking at tinned tomatoes, and I'd have a little kid one hiding under a clothing rail, because it's funny when kids do that. I'd give them names and make families, and there would be a grumpy-dad one that I'd go and sympathise with about how rotten it is to be in a supermarket when you don't want to be. Occasionally, I'd go and talk to one of them, and pretend they couldn't find something, and I'd take them to it and wish them a nice day, and pretend that I'd done something I could feel good about.
I'd have to ration the chocolate and whisky. That would be a depressing task. Assuming I had a lockable room somewhere, I'd lock that kind of thing away, and allow myself to take one thing from it every month, and then not go near the room again until the next month. I'd hand the key up somwhere that I had no reason to go, so there would be less temptation.
I'd set up a cleaning rota, partly for something active to do, and also because it would be easy to neglect it.
At night-time, I'd keep the windows lit, so you could see my crazy mannequins, telling you I'm stuck in a supermarket, but I'd turn the main lights off, and go and hide in bed. I'd want he bed to be away from the main shop floor, but so that I could see it easily if I needed to. I think in Asda back home, they had offices a floor up - I'd sleep in one of those, so it's a bit less open and scary.
I'd go so insane, it would be unreal...
[Edit: provided I didn't kill myself in a burst of insanity, I think you could survive a long, long time in a decent-sized supermarket. It would be miserable, though. I'd get lonely because no-one else would be there, but I'd get paranoid that there was. I'd always have a large knife at the ready.]
