Two kinds of shoppers

Today I left work early for a dentist appointment, then ran by Walgreen's to have my ink cartridge filled for $5 or free after rebate. I learned something new. Not all Walgreen's refill ink cartridges. I had to make a second Walgreen's stop. Both were on my way home, so it was really no big deal. My next stop was Kroger. This is where I realized there are two kinds of shoppers. First, the fast shopper. That would be me. The fast shopper whizzes around the store as fast a possible, getting everything on the list and using all coupons. Getting out of the store as quickly as possible. Second, is the slow shopper. The slow shopper, very methodically cruises down each aisle as if there is nowhere else to be. The slow shopper gets everything on the list and uses all coupons. Neither of these is good or bad. I think they just annoy each other equally. As I tried to whiz around the store, the slow shoppers were blocking every aisle, which annoyed me to no end. As I passed each one, I am sure they were thinking, "slow down!" Like I said, neither is right or wrong, they just don't mix.

Your post made me laugh when I realized that I vary between the two kinds of shoppers. Even when I'm "slow shopping" I try not to block the aisles or anything, that annoys the heck out of me too!

Somedays I am fast and then somedays I am slow. I shop alot on the way home from work. By then I am wore out..On days like that am slow...

Haha! I'm definitely a slow shopper (98% of the time) and because "fast" shoppers annoy me when I'm "slow" shopping I try to shop in the morning or later in the evening. Like the other commenters I try to stay out the way as much as possible!

Haha! I am the slow shopper! I get embarressed if I make a mistake, so I like to take my time and make sure that I have done everything correctly. I also love looking for coupons around the store. Yesterday I did a great job doing this which I am about to post on my blog.
