I've gone into multiple stores over the past two weeks only to be faced with the jarring realization that the layout has been changed. Now, I don't know how other people feel about this, but I have a difficult time when people mess with my comfort zone. I am a man of routine and when my routine is messed with I get flustered. It took me 15 minutes to find the chips in Costco! It took me 10 minutes to find shoelaces in Target! I felt so lost. I think stores should be more considerate to those of us with selective OCD and offer store maps when their layouts change. Of course, I also think all stores should offer free bread to shoppers, so I'm fully aware of how unfeasible many of my suggestions are. I would just appreciate it if stores kept things in the same place so I could find them easier. I don't think that's too much to ask.
