American living in the UK questions why Brit supermarkets have 'same ugly floor'
READ MORE: American feels they've been 'lied to' after trying British cheese for first timeNot quite the great philosophical question, but this US expat has questioned why the shop floors have the ‘exact’ same pattern.Instead of turning to Google or flipping through pages of a book to search for the answer, the American put their trust in TikTok to figure out why supermarket floors are the ‘same’.The eagle-eyed American took a walk around the aisles of Sainsbury's and asked: “Why do all grocery stores in the UK have the exact same floor? It's so ugly it makes me not want to buy anything?”In true British fashion, many people fled to the comments on the viral clip to mock the American – and some gave more probable answers.One person commented: “I just realised that you don’t look at the floor and look at the more expensive eye level items.”Another user mocked: “It's stained from everyone's spilt tea and biscuits.”A third person voiced: “Because they want you to look at products and not the floor.”Someone else chuckled: “They’re dead flies, they just paint over them.”Meanwhile, a fifth user questioned: “Why would you not buy groceries because of the floor?”“It could put people off food”, the American simply said.And, this is not the only time the American has been confused.Previously, they were left baffled as to why Brits have garages in their ‘living rooms’ and park their cars in the garden.READ NEXT: Man slammed for insisting girlfriend covers cost of all meals on her birthday holiday
