As navigating a grocery store can be dangerous buissness, this guide is presented for your safety.

#5: The Turbo-shopper


Common identifying features:
These people are here just for some small thing. They want to get in,get out, and get on with their life. You will never find them lingeringin the aisle, comparing different types of peanut butter. They willalways be rushing around, making a haphazard journey between sides ofaisles, totally oblivious to everyone else around. Their path aroundthe store is very random, never in the proper order.

Dangers:
If you ever get in a turbo-shopper's way, you will regret it. They haveno regard for other people's feet, and any injury will be followed by aquick, hurried "'scuse me." The best way to avoid getting severelyinjured is to pull your cart to the side of the aisle.

#4: The Lazy Shopper

Common identifying features:
These people definitely do not want to be here. They would rather behome sitting o the couch, eating food other people brought home, andwatching TV. These people lean on their cart, weaving all over theplace, not paying any attention at all. They commonly head straight tothe junk food aisles as soon as they get to the store, and makefrequent stops at all samples.

Dangers:
Lazy shoppers weave all over the place, leaning on their cart and onlylooking straight forwards. If you get in their way, they can be surly,rude, and quick to anger. However, no matter how angry they seem, theyare too lazy to do anything about it.

#3: The Little old lady

Common identifying features:
These people want to be here. They like shopping for groceries, orshopping for anything at all. They do not walk very fast, but they movemethodically up and down each aisle, scanning both sides. They have theannoying habit of walking directly in the middle, providing yet anotherobstacle to walk around.

Dangers:
Generally, Little Old Ladies are not that dangerous. However, they arean obstacle standing between you and the pickles. Whatever you do,don't try to be rude to them or cut them off because they do it back.

#2: The Family out shopping

Common identifying features:
This type is the most easy to spot from a mile away, with usually morethan one kid running around the cart, and the whole family, distantrelatives and all, traveling in a dense pack down the aisle. They willstop for no one, and can be very rude if challenged. They usually go tothe snack foods, the cereal, and the bread aisle first.

Dangers:
If you get too close, you could be deafened by the amount of noisearound this group. You also need to be carefull to not run over anyone, which is a constant danger if you stand within 10 feet.

#1: The Mom with kids

Common identifying features:
This type of shopper usually driver the SUV of carts, the ones shapedlike trucks or race cars. Because of the added weight of multiple kids,it is very unwieldy and hard to turn and stop. Because of this, you caneasily be run over, and since the carts are wider than half of theaisle, it is very hard to get around them. Their carts are loaded with family-friendly foods, like apple juice and cherios. You can usually hear them coming from many aisles away.

Dangers:
This is the most dangerous type of shopper! The fancy carts will runyou over without the driver even noticing. There is a large amount ofnoise around the entire group, and it is unpredictable when passengerswill leave the cart and run in front of you. The drivers also have atendency to stop in the middle of the aisle and chat with other people.This causes long roadblocks that can stretch across the store.
