Sunset in Copenhagen


Totally unrelated to the photo: I was in Sainsburys the other day, waiting in the basket checkout queue with bunch of other grey-faced commuters. The self-checkout kiosks are to the right of this queue.

Automated kiosk voice: "Have you swiped your Nectar card?"
Irascible elderly lady: "No, I 'aven't."
Me: *audible giggle*
Irascible: *catching my eye and grinning* "I'm tellin' 'er off."
Me: "She's not very patient."
Irascible: "That's right." *swipes Nectar card* "There! 'Appy now?"

I want to be her when I'm seventy.

Thank you. It was an absolutely beautiful scene. I almost froze my fingers off taking it, though - it was cold and the wind was pretty biting.

yes - this photo is awesome!

p.s. i'm sure it's very prosaic, but a "nectar card" sounds really cool.

Thank you.

It's just a club card for Sainsburys & Homebase where you earn points that are worth about £0.01 each.

Copenhagen seemed like a very nice city to live in generally. I'm told it was a lot less expensive than the rest of Scandinavia, too.
