THE introduction of Plan B restrictions has left a woman terrified that little arrows could return to the floors of shops and supermarkets.
With face masks now compulsory in most indoor venues, anxious shopper Emma Bradford is concerned that the tyranny of one-way systems in supermarkets could be the next imposition to make a comeback.
Bradford said: “We’ve taken the first step down the slippery slope to Hell. Mark my words, the floors of Asda and Sainsbury’s will become a draconian police state by 2022.
“You’ll innocently pop in for some milk and bread, only to remember that you should have picked up some sugar once you’ve gone past it. Instead of just turning back you’ll have to exit the premises and start again from scratch.
“If you try to bend the rules you’ll be subject to the full force of the ‘camp guards’, by which I mean a shop assistant looking at you in a disapproving but bored way.
“I don’t object to the principle of arrows in shops, it’s the fact that they’re mandatory which sticks in my craw. Although even if they were only advisory I probably wouldn’t obey them while chanting ‘do not comply’ into a megaphone. I’m kind of a contrarian twat like that.”
Shop assistant Martin Bishop said: “I don’t know what she’s fretting about. Even at the height of lockdown people only paid attention to one-way systems for a week. I think that’s how Delta came about.”
