If you drive around tiny little podunk towns that have five liquor stores looking for ONE SPECIFIC ONE...you don't CARE if they other one is closer/better/cheaper.....you might be a shopper.

If you make friends with drunkards in the parking lots of the local taverns in broad daylight -- because they know where ALL the liquor stores are -- you might be a shopper.

Marge, thank you for a good laugh before I head out for my round of shops this morning

Here is my latest:
If the bank calls and wants to speak to Karen/Hildegard/Debbie/Kirsten/....and your BF says, "I think it's for you hon"

you might be a shopper!

You get peeved that MSC's can have typo's on the reports, but not vice-versa.

This is straight from a report I'm doing. It's one of the choices. Can you spot the typo?

No, the greeting was unacceptable becasue the Employee did not look at/towards me while greeting.

You might be a shopper when your credit card company puts a security alert on your credit card because you have been making "multiple small purchases" in the same day -- all under $3. Duh! Coffee shops! The funny part is that they don't blink an eye when I charge $$$ at two different hotels on the same day.

How about, You might be a shopper if you have pen marks on your steering column from whipping out the pen to take notes while also putting the keys in the ignition so you don't forget where you put them.

How about, You might be a shopper if you walk into a convenience store and your 5 year old says loudly "Mommy, you're not going to take a picture of the bathroom are you?".

There's a good chance you're a shopper if you have a nice collection of SMALL BROWN BAGs, MEDIUM BROWN BAGs, and LARGE BROWN BAGs, stored in your closet from returns to the famous upscale department store. There's usually one or two floating around in your backseat or trunk, also.

Well, I've taken to keeping a suitcase packed with winter clothes in the trunk of my car in order to simulate being a business traveler. Guess I'm really a shopper now.

You might be a shopper if you can't get online without opening at least three tabs.................one for your mail, one for volition forums and one for whatever company just sent you an email that they have new shops!
This way you can go back and forth with lightening speed to check your mail every two to three minutes. Go to the mystery shopping company website to check and not loose you spot on volition!

You might be a mystery shopper if the FIRST thing you do each morning is grab your coffee and logon!

You might be a mystery shopper if the brand new car you bought just four months ago already has 6,500 miles on it!

You might be a Mystery Shopper if you have 100 pen's in all colors of ink, and in all colors and shapes to match your outfit. Of which you have 3 complete outfit changes in your car, just in case.

You might be a Mystery Shopper if you look like a mobile office. One box each of all sizes of envelopes, 3 pads each of different sizes of note pads, spiral notebooks in different sizes, colors and shapes. Sticky notes in each size, (super sticky), scissors, tape (several types), 10 flatten boxes 6' x 6", 10 bags of 2# rice bags, 4 oversize, (yet light) fully constructed boxes. There is a big stack of instructions in the passenger seat.

You might be a Mystery Shopper if you are spotted approaching an intersection saying "Turn red, turn red, turn red". with a thermometer in your mouth, looking at your watch, a sticky note on your steering wheel,(with half your notes started on it), knowing you have 15 minutes to get to the next shop, your ahead of schedule, on a cell phone, looking over your day planner as your closing a deal for a bonus shop due today that is in the area your already shopping.

If you have ever spent an hour doing modules and passing a multiple choice quiz, in hopes of getting a few bucks and a free Ice Cream,

You are probably a Shopper!

Here are a few I can add to the list! :)

If your dog won't eat dog food anymore because she is "holding out" for the good stuff she knows you will be bringing home later...
you might be a shopper!

If you do not drink alcohol but order it anyway...
you might be a shopper!

If you just had an appetizer, bread, a large entree and somehow still managed to save room for dessert...
you might be a shopper!

If you hate going to the mall for fun anymore because it feels like work
you might be a shopper!

If you have had so many lattes and mochas in the refrigerator at once your spouse yells when he/she knocks one over and it spills...
you might be a shopper!

When you are eating $100 meals and you can't really afford to eat out at all since your spouse is starting his own business...
you might be a shopper!

Your nickname is "The Human GPS"

Your husband asks if he can pay you $12 if you'll just stay home.

You can lie to anyone without flinching and be convincing.

You have triggered the fraud alert on your credit card by making too large of a purchase.

You take business cards discreetly even when not shopping.

You will not eat another regular roast beef sandwich, even if they pay you.

You refuse to deposit checks unless you're getting paid for it.

You get more calls from schedulers than friends and relatives combined.

You know residential street names in every major city in case the salesperson asks.

You say, "They are SO lucky I'm not working!" as you walk through a hotel or restaurant.
The new car you bought THREE months ago has 15,000 miles on it already (at this rate, my 100,000 mile warranty will last me two years!)
You plan your vacations around what shops you can do there.
You automatically take the receipt for every soda or cup of coffee you buy.
When a friend calls and asks what you are doing today, you answer with a list of restaurants, coffee shops and banks.
You carry two extra sets of clothes in your car in case you need to change clientele types on the road.
Your beloved hears you laughing your head off and says, "Reading Volition again, huh?"

You never fill your gas tank because you never know when that bonus gas shop comes up or that route comes up, it never fails I have a full tank of gas. Never fill up again!!

Six different stopwatches because I can never find one when I need one.

Delaying putting in shop checks so that I can do bank shops except the companies that put mystery shopping company on them. How are we suppose to deposit them in our bank accounts that we mystery shop?

I know about every cell phone company in the area. Every promotion that is going on, the best provider, etc.

I have more groceries than I know what to do with. My husband won't eat at home. My daughter is leaving for medical school soon, so I have no one to buy for. I will soon have to donate to the food pantry or give up grocery shops.

My house is littered with more paper than and receipts from shops that must be kept for six months.

Having two computers and printers owned by one person in the house, you know you must be a mystery shopper.

If someone asks your child if she can draw a picture of a certain Australian animal and she draws a gas station.
If you start automatically going into the bathroom of every place that has one, even if you don't need to.

If you actually time how long it takes the doctor to come back in the room after she went to get a pen, you might be a shopper!
