Thats the difference, the wind in Holland os off the Channel/North Sea most of the time, it should keep it fairly clear. (Down here in South West England, the bit that sticks out into the Atlantic, we have about 4000 miles of sea between us and the next land, so we get the purest and freshest air you can imagine. )
Chemalot! I thought you were joking, King Arthur, Camelot and all that, but no:
That's how people are raised in the UK... It's almost inconceivable to be in a supermarket checkout line and someone does not put the divider down! You'd know they were foreign. Or European which is much worse.
In Aus I do that (most other people too) without even thinking about it.
In Singapore few places have them (many don't even have the moving belt), regardless [in typical local custom] divider or no the person behind will start loading their items on the checkout even before you've finished anyway. (Let's not start about jamming themselves in between other people even if disabled/injured to try to get on the bus first, and the same later when they want to get off the bus.)
Do not switch off your computer.
The one here just introduced scanners you carry around the store with you -- select an item, scan it, put it in a bag in your cart, repeat. Then at the exit, everything is already scanned and bagged. I have no intention of trying it, but my wife has.
Our local Tesco switched to them about a month ago - and they were being trialed at the big store in Swansea a year or two ago.
They are a good idea if you do a big shop, but for a little one I'd be juggling baskets, bags, phone-with-shopping-list, and scanner which is a PITA - but I'm betting the theft rate will go up ...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
