The Thing I Find Most Puzzling in Britain

is that… the opening hour for shops is rather short.

I don’t just say this for post offices, but for clothing and department stores as well, which is weird, because a lot of those stores open in weekday when people are still working (to be fair, some open in Saturday).

As a person who’s so determined to go at 6 to visit establishments that open at 7.30, this saddens me, ahahah, because then the places to visit after 6 pm are rather limited (maybe for me only. Or maybe it’s just my scope of knowledge).
