Costco Sample Jams

edited June 2011 in General Discussion
I was at Costco a little bit ago and was about to go crazy with all the stupid people who just leave their carts in the middle of the isle so they can walk over to the free sample. At the end of every isle was a "sample jam" (reminded me of the "Bear jams at Yellowstone park) of shopping carts. There is no getting around them. Over half of these people are muslims who don't speak english who just abandon their cart and group up around the sample cart.
I grabbed a can of coffee and got out of there.

    Had it been me, I would have put some pork products in their carts, and "helped" them shop. Bacon, sausage and ham. MMMMMM. [}:)]

    Good idea. Load up your cart with bacon and toss one into each cart that is blocking you. [:D]

    Another reason to go shopping late at night. I'm sorry but I don't have the patience to be around all the aggrevation. We went shopping a couple weeks ago at Wal-Mart during the evening hours and after about 15 minutes I was reminded again why it was a mistake. Two gals with 2 5-6 y/o boys and they were entertaining themselves with a screaming match. The two gals were not phased at all. I swear I could hear them coming 6 aisles away and tried to get the wife going but no way could she get going to meet my goal of escaping to the front of the store.

    Those places are better than the freak show at the carnival.

    Bingo!

    How about a package of bacon in their cart?
