An old woman has permeated out of the side of a supermarket refrigerator in Osaka as the first discount sticker for the evening was placed on a tempura bento.

Witnesses said the woman suddenly emerged from the aisle six fridge and made a beeline straight for the discount sticker staffer.

The old woman forewent regular social conventions regarding personal space and stood toe to toe with the sticker boy as he carried out his sticker duties.

“I don’t know if there are any rules for personal space afforded to discount sticker staff members but if there are this woman was clearly having none of it,” said one shopper.

The leopard skin obasan was ultimately disappointed with the deals sticker boy was delivering and made her frustrations known by clicking her tongue several times before slipping back into the side of the fridge.
