Saturday! No getting up early for work today, but I still got up early to take ChatterBox to swim lessons. Early for me is any time I need to set my alarm. We had a morning of lessons, book store shopping, clothes shopping (new size smaller today!) and the Costco Grocery run.
Costco on a Saturday. Running through your mind is, so Tourist, you must be crazy! Yes, yes I am, but we needed a Costco run! I was about ready to crash food wise, and so was ChatterBox. The Costco food counter is NOT my idea of delicious healthy good for you nutritional food. But here we were and we were hungry and it is cheap. Honey went to pay for the food, while ChatterBox and I found us a table on a Saturday. Sounds impossible, and to some people it is. But for us, we stalk.
There are two schools of thought on this:
1>If people sat after they pay for their food without the stalkers then there would be plenty of spots available.
2>Hover over people until they leave.
We have a system. We form a triangular pattern around the perimeter of the table area. There are 16 tables ( not nearly enough Costco!) in the center. We maintain eye contact with each other at all times. As once person spots table movement, we start to inch closer. Coats start to go on the table leavers, we move in for the
Not ideal but we are in survival mode at this point.
Are you a table stalker?
