Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for September 24, 2015
Dad: "Look at all this peanut butter! There must be three sizes of five brands of four consistencies! Who demands this much choice??" Dad: "I know! I'll quit my job and devote my life to choosing peanut butter! Is "chunky" chunky enough, or do I need "EXTRA chunky"?" Dad: "I'll compare ingredients! I'll compare brands! I'll compare sizes and prices! Maybe I'll drive around and see what OTHER stores have! So much selection and so little time!" Dad: "I think YOU should do the shopping" Mom: "Did the manager have to talk to you again?" Calvin: "Hey, where's the peanut butter?!"
I understand Calvin’s dad perfectly well. I have a record of walking out of the grocery without having bought for example yoghurt because I couldn’t cope with the choices. (Obviously, Germany is no difference from the US in this respect.)
A friend of ours moved to Denmark a couple of years ago and says she was relieved. One brand of yoghurt, not that many flavors, so your worst decision was “small package or family size” or “strawberry or raspberry”?
