‘Lazy’ Chinese driver turns shop into an instant drive-through
A man drove his car into a convenience store in eastern China to save time from having to park his vehicle, according to Chinese media.
Surveillance footage from the store in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province, showed a grey car being driven through the doorway late on Saturday night.
The footage was shared by the People’s Daily on its Twitter account on Tuesday. It did not identify where in Jiangsu the incident took place.
In the video, a staff member manning the convenience store is seen responding in shock and rushing over to attend to the driver.

He then passes several items from the shelves in the shop to the driver before collecting some cash and returning the change.
The car then reverses slowly out of the shop as the staff member looks on and waves goodbye.
The driver bought a pack of potato chips and a bottle of yogurt, according to a post on Sina.com’s Weibo account.
The post speculated that the driver decided not to get out of the car as it was late and raining.
“Give him an ‘A’ for creativity!” one Twitter user, AhasOConnor, wrote.
Jiangsu-based Weibo user Liuyiqiu wrote: “The service of that convenience store is perfect.”
