Protest all those displays that stick out in your way

How about we organize a world-wide protest against those stand-alone displays that stick out into the aisles and clutter up the traffic? Declare a worldwide "down with grocery aisle roadblocks" month. Everybody agrees to accidentally-on-purpose bump their carts into one of these roadblocks each time they shop, to demonstrate how annoying they really are!

       I prefer to seek out and remove the keystone product, especially when they're stacked in a pyramid style.

       When stores pile a load of crap in the middle of the already narrow aisle, to make you have to squeeze around it.

       I haven't seen stand-alone displays in the middle of the aisle, they're typically between the aisles and the back wall (or towards the front.) Also, as far as I have observed, supermarket aisles tend to be more wide than narrow.
