you are a shopper if:
You find yourself going to the rest room at a gas station without thinking and then wondering why you went there.
you walk around the islands while your car is filling, looking at the sqeegee and the trash cans.
You look out for deals on printer cartridges
you have one whole draw in the desk full of reports
the reminder on your Firefox has a full list of shopping times due
A new product in a fast food outlet gets advertised on TV and you wonder when you will get to try that
You get bad service at a shop and wish you were doing a shop there
you can remember the assistants name tag of the last 3 shops you went too
you get used to shopping alone

... if someone asks you to take them somewhere, asks you how much you are going to charge them and you tell them nothing because we will just make a few stops!

The name of the company that shops each gas station pops into your head as you're driving down the highway and you know how much each pays.

... if your accountant asks if you've done any good shops lately before he asks for your spreadsheet of expenses (and he's wondering if you are shopping him!)

You know just where to find the nearest homeless person on your route after each coffee assignment so that you can give them that high fat beverage as you drive by.

Here's a twist on this topic...

You might be an editor if:

1. You have the desire to assign grades to forum posts.
2. You're tempted to reply to your friends' e-mails with feedback.
3. You let your shopping companion know that the person who helped you in the store isn't a cashier, they're a "sales representative."
4. You open a long e-mail and have a feeling of dread, knowing that it'll take forever to edit.

You Might Be a Shopper IF...

You try to convince hubby that celebrating his birthday two months late due to the rotation on your fav fine dine is really not SO bad.

You walk through the supermarket on a regular outing thinking... didn't speak to me... note name on napkin in restroom immediately.

You begin to think that if you hear one more cell phone sell, you'll sprout wings and fly.

You might be a Mystery Shopper if:

You have 16 containers of dish detergent under your kitchen sink, which were the required "$1.00" purchase necessary to prove your date/time at the assignment.

I cleaned out my kitchen this weekend and found 16 bottles of (store brand) dish detergent under my kitchen sink. Product I purchased for the $1.00 purchase requirement.

I love this one ! I'm doing it tomorrow during my weekly stop at the grocery store just to see if anyone notices.

You might be a shopper if: You start a diet, and are losing that dreaded weight...then, along comes a great restaurant, you can't control yourself, and apply. The restaurant calls for appetizer, drink, entree, dessert and coffee, next day, your 3pds up....and tell yourself, "it's my work, not my fault".

You might be a shopper if, you go out to dinner (on your own), and run into the restroom to check it out, look for Server's nametag, check lightbulbs, music and tempeture...ooops, you may be a shopper..

You might be a shopper if you used to love certain donut shops and now would not eat there even for shoppers pay.

You might be a shopper if..... You go out to eat and write up a report when you get home, only to then remember that you actually ate there on your own.

If you are touringa model of a new home and the sales representative plucks a wad of duct tape from your hair.... you might be a shopper!


If someone hands you a form to fill out and you have a moment of panic because you can't remember what your address and phone number are supposed to be.... you might be a shopper.

If you meet a new person and get a deer-in-the-headlights look when it comes time to say your name because you can't remember it.... you might be a shopper.

You might be a shopper if when you're spouse is driving down the road you constantly comment, "I've shopped there." "I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." "and I've shopped there." ...

True, Dar.

Mine also goes, "I've merchandised there." "I've merchandised there." "I've shopped that chain but in a different location."
