You get excited because the receipt (the cashier just handed you) is in nice, dark ink and you know you won't have to play with the scanner to make it legible.

(Why don't these places change their register ink cartridges more often?!)

You might be a shopper if...

You go to the new grocery store that just opened and are memorizing the names of each associate you meet, how long they took to greet you, and exactly what they said...and then realize you aren't on a shop.

You might be a mystery shopper if:
You wish you had one more computer shop to buy the new mouse, new printer, and printer paper that you need for your next shop.

You might be a mystery shopper if:

You stand outside with wet hair and wearing only a sweater (hidden), in 45 degree misty weather for 45 minutes waiting for someone to bring you the spare set of car keys, because you locked your keys in your car, and you don't want to lose your anonymity.
This happened to me today.

You might be a shopper if:

You can't leave the house without your laptop, digital camera and cell phone. You drive a car with three outlets to keep the above mentioned charged.

Your dog no longer wants to take a ride in the car and hides in the laundry room. An hour is okay, but not all day.

You're driving home on New Year's Day and every time you reach a live spot driving through Nevada you log into your laptop looking for shops.

You're meeting your family for lunch and your brother calls you wondering if your lost. Your not, you just had to sign up for a couple more shops.

...If your CD collection of archived audit pic's is larger than your music collection....

...If you can accurately quote driving times and mileage between any 2 points within a 100 mile radius of your home...

...If you can plan 12 hours of travel with 26 jobs all in one day, and complete that day within 15 minutes of your schedule...

...If you have not completely filled your car's tank with fuel in years, because you always need room in the tank for a gas station job...

...You gotta be a mystery shopper!

You might be a shopper if...

When you talk to retail staff they catch you sneaking peeks at their illegibly written name tag each time they look to make eye contact

When you sit in a restaurant you carry on a distracted conversation with your associate and rarely take your eyes off what's going on around you (sometimes staff even think you're interested in them because they catch you staring)

When you sit in a movie theater you can mouth the words to about 85% of the trailers

When you pick up your cup of white chocolate mocha you can tell by just lifting the cup that the weight is off

When shopping the other day, I went into a restroom stall, and then began thinking of what I needed to quickly write down. I wasn't ON a shop-duh!

You have bowls in your refrigerator filled with ketchup packs, half n half and jelly... You might be a shopper
When your kids ask if you have an actual bottle of ketchup or jar of jelly they can use and walk away laughing over your mean look you just gave 'em... You might be a shopper
When your wanna be comedian husband likes to hum the theme song to the Pink Panther or Mission Impossible while your on a shop you forced him to go on with you... You might be a shopper
If you can never seem to rid your car of that french fry smell...You ARE a shopper

I got a bowl of Sonic mints too

I don't know how to quote a post
but I have to add the following to the
You know where the assosciates in the hardware store are hiding

either that or your dad has been doing one too many remodal jobs and you've been sent to find yet another item.

You've drug your husband and one year old to look at furniture you definently can't afford

You have figured out exactly what half your house is going to be decorated in

I haven't been doing this long but I can relate to a lot of what you all have written. But, the one that really made me laugh was this, "When you pick up your cup of white chocolate mocha you can tell by just lifting the cup that the weight is off." This happened to me recently. The minute I got it I KNEW it was too light. I felt so bad for the guy because he was above and beyond in every other way (except that he also threw my receipt away without asking and had to dig it out of the trash for me...).

Reading all this stuff made me laugh!!
Here are some more.

You might be a shopper if....You are constantly signing up for the BONUS FF shops that are way out of your way and you realize you don't have enough money to cover the expensesand have to pawn something because you don't get paid for another couple of days.


You might be a shopper if.....You keep extending the due date on your electricity bill because there are lots of reimbursement shops available for the next few days.


You might be a shopper if.... Your boss gives you a company phone to use because all these bills are way too expensive and you can't afford a cell phone, Yet, he always sees you eating fast food and wonders if you're ever telling him the truth. (My boss really thinks this!!!)
