They're the Ones we need to keep out of town - making all supermarket trolleys proximity locked would help too!!!

I hate modern life too.
I hate all the traffic, the fast paced movement, bring hounded by texts/emails/calls, the extremely high cost of living, the buildings taking over green space, noise levels, massive supermarkets, too many people everywhere.......as humans we were not designed to be able to cope with all this, it's not how we were designed to live. No wonder so many people feel anxious, stressed, depressed. It's modern life. It has changed more quickly than our brains have had time to adapt to.

I had a horrible experience yesterday in Lewes town. I did some shopping in fat face, white stuff and the shoe gallery, and was really bothered by all the traffic flooding up the hill and tound past barclays. It was unpleasantly full of cars, vans, trucks driving past non stop. Then i stood outside waitrose waiting for a bus. The noise level of all the traffic going past waitrose and the buses pulling in and out of the bus stop was horrendous. Plus, the pavement and around the base of the tree outside waitrose was absolutely filthy. I had to wait 30 mins for my bus back to balcombe and in that time I actually started to feel ill from the noise and traffic pollution.
Modern life has ruined Lewes.

Surely shopping in fat face, white stuff and all the other shops catered for middle class women is a horrible enough experience?
In fact, I can't understand why there are so many shops purely catered for middle class women. There's at least 20 I can think of.

Probably because there are more middle class women out shopping during the working week than any other demographic group.

If I came to power I would pedestrianize Lewes. Horses and carts only allowed for deliveries on the centre.

Well, Bother, if you are that concerned by our present-day, fairly prosperous, Lewes, go back to pre-bypass. Lewes was a solid, two-way traffic jam from St Anne's to Malling Hill. You could cut the pollution with a knife, but, as we all smoked like chimneys ourselves, we didn't really notice! Maybe you want to return to these halcyon days of 1960's Lewes?

You would have thought, but there aren't enough middle class women to keep all these stores afloat. Personally, I think they must be fronts for laundering money from crack cocaine.
Certainly you'd have to be on crack to step into one of these shops. Have you seen that absurd potion shop at the top of the town, next to Richards butchers?

Skin care shop next to Richards butchers? Walked past when I was going home on Thursday night. They were open. Place packed out with customers.
