Shelf Life

Currently reading 'Shelf life' by Simon Parke - 'A vicar for 20 yrs, Simon Parke called time on his dog collar to work in a supermarket... A hilarious shopumentary of the highs and lows of retail - dedicated to anyone who loves life and hopes for more, no matter they find themselves'

I found 'life on the tills' a little sardonic, useful as an overview, but not much warmth for humankind! perhaps 'Shelf life' will be more rounded.

A life on the tills
