Psychologically: One runs off rushed and would still like to buy absolutely a little bit completely important - but where always one wants to open just the store door, is already closed. The closing time time as a small everyday life-nightmare dream is a symbol for emotional 'locked out being' - one suffers from the impression that all the others have more luck, rather an ideal partner (the nicer flat, the better relations, the better job prospects etc.) in other respects even more of the sunny side of the life got. A very frequent women's dream (particularly in separation situations) if own self-assertion and the self-esteem have reached a low. Such dreams should be understood as a tip that one 'do on time something' (become active) has to go to initiate a positive change.
