Well, maybe it’s because supermarkets are the Special Hell and finding time to actually get to one is a pain and honestly I have better goddamn things to do. Also, the whole idea of “grocery shopping at the supermarket” is like a Baby Boomer fad that’s totally had its day and now everyone–not just Millennials, mind–are reverting to the historic norm.
Personally, I think I’ve done grocery shopping, like, twice in the last year. For things like toilet paper we stock up at CostCo once a quarter, while all of our food comes from a dude we call “The Box Man”, a.k.a. Angus, who runs a local business delivering just-add-cooking-semi-pre-prepared meals for white collar DINKs. Also, we literally live across the road from a hipster market so, yanno. Fuck Coles and Woolies, basically.1
- We don’t even buy milk from the supermarket, come to think of it, because the grog shop also sells it and is much closer. I don’t think we’ve ever actually bought alcohol from that shop, just milk and ice creams. Because hipsters, basically. [↩]
