places you're intimidated walking in to

when i was a teenager i used to be massively intimidated walking into clothes shops, particularly terrible places like USC or Office where it felt like the staff were both silently judging you and waiting to pounce on you

Went sofa shopping a few weeks ago and whilst I wasn’t intimidated I did find myself constantly trying to avoid the over-zealous sales staff

It used to be Lush (I go there a bit to get stuff that my wife wants), because of the smell and all the many staff members who descend on you when you walk in but now I know roughly where each section is I’m more confident about it.
Tiger maybe because of the weird one-way system. I like to browse leisurely, not be hustled around the place like a sheep at a sheepdog trial.

Complicated bakeries; hate not knowing the name of specialised bread.

nah i love a quiet pub, nothing better than having a pint with a book in somewhere like that
