Lost in the Grocery Store

You’re 8 years old and lost in the super market. Mother is no where to be found and tears slowly begin to formulate in your eyes. You’re about to look a fool in front of the entire grocery store, leaving you traumatized for life. The only way to stop the tears from bursting out is to find mother in the next minute. You have time to search one aisle, which do you choose? (There is no wrong answer)

No, then you look like a panicked 8 year old child running through the grocery store looking for his mom. You have to play it cool and collected, expressing to the other patrons you know exactly where your going

Go to the candy aisle and stock up there before you go on you adventure to find your mom

Wrong answer. You make it to the candy aisle but then you burst into tears, making you look like even more of a baby.

is 8 old enough to know how to articulate asking customer service a question (intercoms are useful, but embarrassing)? If not, i’d had to have to say electronics… maybe they have Fortnite playground on console oO?

I’d scream ‘I have byte beta’. That will attract her attention for sure.

Good call on straying away from the intercoms. That would provoke way too much attention to you. Still, wrong answer. I don’t know which grocery store you’re shopping at that has an electronics aisle and why mother, who is inept in technology would be there in the first place.

Wrong answer. While the patrons would be impressed that you have byte beta, they would also get jealous and tell on you once they found your mother.

i would use my epic new iphone which i definitely should have at this age, and call the police to help me search for my mom

Wrong answer. Your mother recognizes that you went to such extreme lengths to find her after only having been lost for a few minutes. She’s disappointed and rightfully disowns you for wasting the time of on duty officers.

I stay where I am and stand so incredibly still that I have mastered the art of becoming invisible that way no one can see my crying

Wrong Answer. On paper that sounds like a strong plan, but as you start crying, you notice people turn towards you despite your incredible stillness. You forget that they can still hear your embarrassing outbursts and you look a fool in front of everyone in the grocery store.

You don’t have time to wait for mother. You reach the candy aisle and burst into tears. Wrong Answer.

wait im really confused, up the top you said there was no wrong answer???

to join in on the fun though, i would go to the milk or bread aisle because due to supermarket layouts and commercialising they put the most popular items down at the back of the store because then consumers have are forced to go and look at all their other products. Knowing my mum, she would definetly end up there feeding a family of five. Also, this aisle usually (in australia at least) is unifies all of the other individual aisles. This means if my mum is doing a shop where she weaves in and out of every shopping aisle (which is what she usually does) she is bound to find me within a matter of minutes.

And in 8 year old me mannerism: its heckin cold standing next to the milk and i love the icecream

Well, I never got lost. When I was a kid I didn’t “touch nothing, see nothing, want nothing, and kept my mouth shut” at my mother’s side the whole trip inside the store. So therefore, I wouldn’t be lost and I wouldn’t be crying.
