This fictive story takes place in a store where the customers are being helped over the counter. The employees organize the goods for the customers, using utilities like carts and packing lists. At first sight it might look rigid, but in the encounters between the customers and employees, there are humorous and poetic elements. The store exists as a closed space with its own rules and specific knowledge, but sometimes another reality cuts through, a political and social spark that makes everything in the store appear in a new way.
