You might be a shopper if...

It is Valentines Day and your big night out with your sweetheart is a dinner shop!
Ok...it is a great restaurant with an $80.00 reimbursement.
But it will really stink to come home and have to write that report!!!

Yes, Chris, I can certainly understand the feeling.

If at 11:45pm on Valentine's Day, after you've finished a wonderful dinner with your significant other, you are at your computer writing a 3-page single-spaced narrative and an 8-page report... you might be a shopper. And a very grateful shopper

You might be a shopper if you took your "significant other" to a FF shop on Valentine's Day and they fell asleep while you did your online report. LOL... the things we do to MS!

Ok heres mine.

If you get a cell phone call from YOUR car dealership and he tells you that the car you have had on order for four months is docked, and because you are in the middle of a sales presentation with the sales agent who is convinced you want this 2005 Magnum, and you cannot ask what color you got without revealing this to the sales rep, or even ask when it will arrive at the dealership.

You might be a "shopper."

If you order 150-degree coffee in 100 degree Texas weather, you might be a (very sweaty) shopper.

If you slept in 10 different hotels in the past few weeks without leaving your (25 mile radius) neighborhood, and you aren't a hooker, you might be a mystery shopper.

If you keep going to the airport, but never actually fly anywhere, you might be a shopper.

If you're too embarrassed to tell your personal trainer what you really had for lunch, you might be a mystery shopper.

If you time the 4th of July fireworks.....

They lasted 15 minutes in Gulfport FL.

If you can figure out how to spend a $5 reimbursement at a store called the "Ten Dollar Boutique" you might be a shopper. (I just saw this listing . Oh wait, there's a $7 shop fee also. I guess that makes it okay )

If you are not taking your beloved child shoe shopping this week, you might be a shopper…

If the “delete” button on your keyboard appears overused and worn-out lately, you might be a shopper…

If your significant other demands that you either eat/drink everything that’s in the freezer or throw them away, you might be a shopper…

Last, but not the least, if you have the habit of visiting the restroom first wherever you go, you might be a shopper...

You are definitely a shopper when your three year old comes from the gum ball machine apologizing "That machine did not give me a receipt"

You are definitely a mystery shopper when the primary breakfast food at your house is left over rolls from the restaurant shop the night before.

You are definitely a shopper when you have five jars of spices in your car to use for grocery shop returns complete with the receipts for when you bought them.

You are definitely a mystery shopper when no matter what someone is looking for you, you can tell them where to buy it because eventually you've been paid to shop for everything under the sun!

You are definitely a mystery shopper when you have bags from grocery stores for your state and at least two others! Or bags from malls in a tri-state area and its NOT Christmas time!

You know you've been shopping too long when you automatically call every server and host by name so you can remember it better, even when you aren't shopping!

You know you are a mystery shopper when you go to write a complaint letter about service in a store or restaurant, and it sounds like a shoppers report!

OK-

If you go to the drive thru window, get your food, park, and repeat inside ... you may be a shopper.

If you have gourmet recipes for P-J's garlic sauce and special seasoning spice, you may be a shopper.

If you ask for a receipt for a dollar food purchase at the gas mart, your may be a shopper.

If you work long hours for little pay, but love it you may be a shopper.

Shoppers rock!

You might be a shopper if:

You can name the yardage for every tee on every golf course in the county and you don't play golf.

Your husband asks "Honey, am I allowed to buy a soda from the cart attendant?"

When your friends brag about the "hole in one" at a course and you have to bite your tongue from saying "did you watch out for hole to the left of the bunker as you approached the putting green?"

if you mentally critique the four part harmony and clapping frequency of a "birthday salute" at your local casual restaurant....

ok, here's mine: (true story)
You might be a shopper if...
You go to the ER with a severe gall bladder attack, and all you can think about is how are you going get your shops done for the rest of the week, and whether or not your scheduler will believe you.

The trunk of your car is full of different bags with items to be returned later in the week.

Tonight's dinner: subs from today's award shops.

You feel a certain bond with people you've never met...all from message boards.

You know exactly where to find out who has applied for county permits, which indicate new restaurants and retailers coming to town. Then your friends ask, "What's going in at the corner of Main Street and 7th Avenue?" and they know you know the answer!

If you hoard empty boxes so you can fill them with newspaper and send them across the country.

If your credit card statement has a list of charges under $10.

If you hold off on going to the mall, because you're sure you will be there next week for a shop.

If your car trunk is filled with items you need to return next week.

If you purchase a computer and carry it out to your car, only to return it an hour later.

You hope that you don't go into labor before you finish your last shop.

You could describe every account at the bank better than the associates.
