There now for the first time. Not enjoying it.
Good for food
Need fuel for gym later.
They're playing that pop music really loud so you can't really think about what you're doing.
“Man is the cruelest animal. At tragedies, bullfights, and crucifixions he has so far felt best on earth; and when he invented Westfield Stratford for himself, behold, that was his very heaven.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
I was lost looking for a shop on the map, and a polite staff member asked if she could help, and then helped me find it.
She exists solely to keep you buying shit that you don't need so that you're distracted from the real problems in this world. She's not doing you any favours, maaaan.
She was wrong. Getting stressed
The shop could be any shop, it's all just a front for inner happiness
Say hi to them.
They're called Carol and Brian.
but not much, and will confirm that there's a lot of good stuff in there and if you go when it's not busy it's quite the boon

I think it's a combination of the lack of decent places to eat plus the fact that the layout is a mess and that makes navigation and orientation difficult.
It's as stark as the contrast between Lakeside and Bluewater (mess of a plan compared to a simple triangle), perhaps even more so as the Shepherd's Bush Westfield was targeted to be the more upmarket one with wider central malls and atria that would supposedly lead to a calmer, more refined shopping experience.
...the bit they put there to say "See! We're not an identikit mall!". Buy some food. Leave.
