at my assessment I was asked if the small corner shop was the same size of a Tesco Express, my reply was no. 
I have been in this shop since and I asked the owner how long is his shop. His reply was he didn't know. I then remembered 20 metres was 2 large bus lengths so asked can 2 large buses total of 20 metres. He replied no, and said his shop must be 15 metres.  

On on leaving the shop I realised I needed the length of the shop front.  I had a brain wave, looking at my car I judged 2 cars could park there.  I never realised I would ever measure a shop by large buses and cars.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

    I have this thing about Firemen in long leather boots.  If I started thinking of strapping lads I would never be able to do the sums!

    Hello maid08, I took it the larger the shop the more walking you would have to do.

    Lol, must have been thinking of those hunks lying in a line.  Tried measuring the length I have to walk from my front door to my car. After measuring my stride I  made it approx 17' or better 3 hunky men.
