You know what I mean. Modern supermarkets don't have exits without shopping so it might be a psychological trick to make you buy something before you leave.

So, have you ever left a supermarket without shopping BY YOURSELF?

No. It would make me feel really guilty and I'd just be thinking how the staff might be thinking I stole something.

Yes, but I do agree that it feels weird.

Erm.. All the time. Considering I used to work in one.

Plus you just go through an empty checkout. It's not like it's a maze! Haha.

Yeah today actually. My bf was looking for brewing sugar but Asda didn't have it so we just walked out empty handed and got it in Wilkinsons instead.

Oops must not have noticed that when I first posted but yeah, I've walked out of a shop/supermarket without buying anything while alone too plenty of times. Its a little awkward sometimes. You do sometimes get the impression that workers or security guards think you are dodgy or something.

That's exactly what many others are saying.

Now and again.

I often spend 10-15 minutes wandering round Tesco at like, 11 at night looking for a bar of chocolate... I don't know why there's something I like about supermarkets very late/very early xD

So, have you ever left a supermarket without shopping BY YOURSELF?
Yeah, plenty of times.

Because didn't find anything I wanted, so I usually just wander around a bit think what I could eat, after I realise that there's nothing good in shop I just put down my basket somewhere and leave or put back what I picked up and then leave.

Usually it's like I'm thinking what on earth I could cook and nothing seems that interesting or I don't remember what ingredients I need, also feeling too lazy to cook something I've eaten too many times already.

Then there's realisation that it's full of junk food or crappy food, that has way too many calories.
