A. If I spent more than five minutes in this environment, i’d have a nervous breakdown!

H. It bores me stiff and I can’t stand it.


There are many different types of shops – department stores, supermarkets, market stalls, traditional shops, the list is endless. But whether I’m in a huge modern shopping centre, a cosy village shop or an outdoor market in Morocco, it’s all the same to me. It’s shopping. (0) H

There are three types of people. Those who love shopping, those who don’t have an opinion, and those who hate it. Those who love it are ‘shopaholics’.They buy anything, anytime, anywhere, and at any price. (1)______ Those who don’t have an opinion will usually do enough shopping for a comfortable life. They know how to say no to a bargain and when their credit card is reaching its limit.

Those who hate it will try anything to get out of doing it. They ask their family, they ask their friends. They happily go without milk or sugar in their coffee rather than go to buy some more. They wear socks with holes in them and don’t buy new ones. (2)__________ of course, am one of the ‘haters’, but when I’m absolutely forced to go because I have nothing left to eat, drink or wear in the house, I like to be left alone. (3) _________They try to make you think they’re interested.

They try to make you feel special. They tell you that a pair of green trousers with red spots really suit you, but you know they only want your cash. Give me a bored, rude or disinterested shop assistant any day!

The sales? You won’t see me there. Think of those pushing crowds rushing about looking for bargains, lines of people queuing up waving their credit cards. (4)_________

Of course there are also serious reasons why I dislike some shops. Their prices are too high and they sell perfectly shaped, perfectly coloured fruit and vegetables which make you wonder what is done to them when they are being grown.

Shopping by computer, that’s the answer. (6)_____________ It probably wouldn’t affect the serious problems I have mentioned, but it would certainly get rid of the crowds and avoid the ‘helpful’ assistant.

Question 3. Read the text below and think of the word which best fits each space. Use only ONE word in each space.
