As much as I detest shopping, I do occasionally go to help out with the day-to-day mundane activities. My bride works full time, so I can at least go to Costco where everything you buy is by the truck. I don't mind because the deals are good, but I have to say the mooches who go for the free food samples make me crazier than I already am.

We all like a free nosh from time to time, but blocking the aisle just because you think the sample lady is your own personal chef is nonsense. They block the aisle and wait for a fresh tray after they have cleaned off the previous one. They look at you like you're nuts because they have nothing better to do. Why do people bring the whole family to shop in those places? Mom and dad and the kids. Haven't you heard of a list?

Where are the manners from people today? They have gone by the boards. If someone is standing behind you with one or two items and you have a full cart, what would be the harm in having that person go in front of you? The best part for me, though, is when Mommy is talking to the baby and trying to prove to the world that she is a Super Mommy: "Honey, do you want a grape while we're in line? You're such a sweet baby for being patient...OOOOOH, I love you so much."

Maybe I'm jealous. My kids would have torn the line apart. That's why I kept them home where they belong and I could get my shopping done for the "wife". Did I say that?

What do you think of mooches? Contact me to let me know.
