Shopping = Happiness?

Happy Shopping
Happy Shopping

I carried out a bit of a social experiment today. I walked around a supermarket for 15 minutes with the intention of seeing how many people were smiling / looking happy.

I thought beforehand that maybe 50% would be smiling.

Not a bit of it…. to my shock, I didn’t see a single person smiling, laughing or joking the whole time.

Perhaps it is the time of year, perhaps it is not wanting to do the shopping on a Sunday, perhaps we are not a happy Nation.

Is it “a bit weird” if you walk around with a smile on your face these days?
