Frankly, going into most supermarkets has become an exercise in frustration. Constant innovations mean you never actually know where anything is and, worse, self-service tills have been introduced -- which resulted in ignominy in Dunnes in the Stephen's Green centre for me last week as I spent 10 minutes waiting like a lemon for a checkout person to come along until I realised that I was meant to put the money into some sort of an electronic till.
