I had to stock up on prescription meds. to keep my very Scottish vascular system in order and used the chemist on the right for the first time. I was shocked to discover that it closed for lunch and even more surprised when I discovered it had around 6 members of staff.
It did not seem very 21st century.
Its an appalling thought, the feeling I got, that the right to a decent break in the working day was somehow wrong, out of place and of another time.
