Well, baby-boomers, anyway.
Here in Nelson, it’s even more noticeable.
At 4pm, anyone who’s of voting age vacates their place at the supermarket checkout and is replaced by a school kid.
Which means that if you want to buy beer or wine, they have to ring the bell to get a supervisor.
They must have run out of school kids at Pak’n’Save in Richmond yesterday, because the checkout operator almost qualified for a free bus pass.
“Ah” I said in a weak attempt at humour “I’ve got some wine, so I guess you’ll have to call your supervisor”
And she did.
Must have been a mature student……
