Look at the title and predict why the writer hates going to the supermarket.
Read and check your ideas. He hates .
Fill the gaps in the sentences using the (verb) correctly.
I (go) to the supermarket yesterday and as usual it (be) really crowded. I (decide) what type of milk to buy when a child (say) to me “why is your shirt so clean?”. Before that moment I (always think) that having a clean shirt was a good thing, but obviously not!
Anyway, I (ignore) his comment and continued with my shopping. I (be) in the supermarket for about 30 minutes and even though I still needed to buy lots of things, I (think) to myself “that’s it, I can’t put up with this crowd of people anymore, I’m going”.
I (go) to pay at the till, but as usual there (be) a queue a mile long. I only had 6 things in my basket, but I (not want) to ask to go ahead of anyone, as I hate it when people do that to me. I (wait) in the queue for about 15 minutes when a woman came up to me and said “can I go in front of you, I only have 8 things”.
I (tell) her to go away as I only had 6 things! She (not listen) to me though, instead she asked the person in front of me if she could go ahead of him… and he (say) yes! I told him that I (already refuse) her request to go in front of me, but he said “come on mate… she’s only got 8 things”. “And I’ve only got 6!” I replied “so why can’t I go in front of you?!” “I can’t let 2 people go in front of me” he said.
So I (have to) wait longer; whilst I (wait) I (think) “this is why I hate coming to the supermarket!”.
