”The Shopman” by H. G. Wells is a short essay. H. G. Wells once different, humorous social satire and ironic.
If I were really opulent, I would not go into a shop at all-I would have a private secretary. If I were really determined, Euphemia would do these things. As it is, I find buying things in a shop the most exasperating of all the many trying duties of life.
