    Read on Kindle Unlimited! So here in the UK, we have a supermarket chain called Waitrose and this is a collection of poetry and comments made and shared by shoppers of the supermarket, which in turn is the basis for this book. I liked the illustrations. Some of the poetry was funny but not everything was.

    A quick and amusing Kindle Unlimited read to help me with the disaster that is my Goodreads challenge. Some of those quotes are too wild to believe!

    What makes this book so entertaining and funny, is the source of the content - live conversations overheard in Waitrose, from real people we stand next to in the queue. Those stressed out upper class customers having a melt down because their little darling has to go without foie gras in his luncheon box, due to a stock shortage. A highly recommended stroll through the aisles, that will leave you feeling lighter, smiling and perhaps a little peckish. I do hope there is a sequel to this book.

    A collection of overheard sayings Conversations to make you giggle. People are ridiculous and this book highlights the funny side of our self obsessions and relationship with class and money

    I didn’t know what to expect with this. Whether the title was to draw you in or if it was actually true. Turns out these are things people have actually heard in Waitrose. The huge stereotype around people who shop at Waitrose was portrayed really well throughout this and how we imagine the customers to be. Some of the poems/quotes were funny, some weren’t. I wouldn’t recommend but it’s good if you want something silly to read. However a lot of it feels exaggerated and false.

    'perhaps you'd like to tell my daughter why her packed lunch cencioni is without fresh pesto?' 'i'm going to the Bahamas next week. trying to decide on which cleanser to pack is actually really stressful' 'no i'm not a snob but people who aren't rich disgust me' Still trying to figure out if I found the little book more amusing, shocking or hard to believe. Take your pick. 'perhaps you'd like to tell my daughter why her packed lunch cencioni is without fresh pesto?'

    I mean it’s daft but very funny. I almost can’t believe there are people like that. Yet I want there to be so my inner proletariat can laugh at their nonsense. A good quick read for when you’re fed up of Lockdown and your brain has ceased to function correctly.

    U do hear such things!! Especially laughed at ‘you will like potatoes darling it’s what gnocchi is made of’ And ‘where is the free range weetabix?’ Also ‘you mean to say you eat an apple with your bare hands? without knife and fork? how liberating.’ 15 mins read !

    Reflections and lessons learned: Mean, but knowing people that have worked there, tragically believable... as ridiculous and amusing as I’d expected!

    A funny book capturing conversations or statements overheard at the supermarket Waitrose. Lost a star as the way they was written was sometimes annoying and it was quite a short book so I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for it

    hahahahahah there's nothing more I enjoy more than laughing at people who shop at Waitrose. It's like a mocking of Milk and Honey, but is just so much better for laugh-ability hahahahahah there's nothing more I enjoy more than laughing at people who shop at Waitrose.
