4. When you can't find the aisle with the Waitrose essentials.

5. That sinking feeling you get when the Wasabi queue stretches all the way to Paul.

The queue to get #Wasabi on a Friday in Canary Wharf is ridiculous. Katsu curry time!

"Did you say ticket 178?"

6. When Crussh forces you over your £5 lunch limit.

And your £6 limit, and your £7 limit, and your £8 limit.

7. And the Wahaca van runs out of guacamole.

Keep calm and ask for extra salsa.
