Shelf Life by Simon Parke

shelf_lifeWhat does a vicar do when he no longer wants to be a vicar?  He works in a London supermarket; apparently.

Shelf Life has been a surprisingly enjoyable account of Simons’ time behind the till, the fruit and veg shelf and the bakery.

His recounts his dealings with the public, including running down and catching two shoplifters.  His friendships with his fellow staff members and battles with management will raise a smile from anyone who has endured a workplace full of slightly different folk.  Shelf Life is full of small, but important, life lessons Simon learned to apply during this period of his life.

Very enjoyable.

Chiefly, I think he learned patience…
