Grocery Sniping

Next in my supermarket checkout game series: When a person ahead of you receives a total to pay, immediately offer a counter-bid of couple of dollars more and begin a competitive bidding process. If they assert that the groceries are theirs, point out that they have not yet paid. Or ask what sort of bag they used (paper or plastic) and smile approvingly and keep bidding.

This, I suspect, would be most fun when done to rightwing think- tankers. If they actually go to the supermarket.

Important equipment: running shoes.

Shameless plug for other, somewhat related idea [DadManWalking, Jan 28 2005]


       There are many suspicious groups absent from supermarkets. I never see long haired musicians or long haired anybody buying food in a grocery store. I never see athletically well built figures there either, famous people, hollywood starlets. I think you know where this is going.
