Elizabeth could have mentioned how people cut in line, cashiers have to wait on the managers to check larger bills, items are often not in stock, and the night crowd is unbelievably large and choose items incredibly slowly. I find it funny that Elizabeth posted this last night because I was at the other Lucky that same night...exhausting! I told Chris that groceries was the hardest part about living in Cambodia for me...that is, besides the heat. =)
I know Elizabeth is not complaining but explaining. She paints such a great picture of the experience. I often wonder why I can't do all that I did in the States, why living here is so different and difficult. What she has written makes me feel a bit more normal. Chris and I have been discussing why something that is seemingly simple (like telling people Bible stories for him and buying spaghetti sauce for me) can be so difficult. What's wrong with us?!
