    I love this story! The woman’s husband obviously knew what she was like and acted accordingly.

    • I thought you might Cheryl. I think everyone can relate to it on one level or another… LOL. 🙂

  • Oh, does that sound familiar. Glad you meant a helpful giant. Loved this wording: “Kamikaze housewives” – too funny.

    • Thanks Leora. He was such a great guy. I think many wanted to give him a standing ovation. :-). The Kamikaze term just seemed to fit. 😀

  • I remember this old post! 🙂 Fun to read it again.

    • Hi there Jon. It’s been awhile my friend. It was a fun post to write. Happy Holiday’s to you.

  • I laughed at the woman in a life-changing decision over the tomatoes!! Good story Susan:-)

    • Thanks A.K. It was an interesting experience and the way she was looking at the cans of tomatoes made me wonder what was in them that was so interesting… LOL.

  • I cannot believe this woman had the nerve to say NO to moving her freaking cart! I’m glad her husband asked her if she was in the way, LOL.
    It also made me think of a weekend market trek my boyfriend & I made once (we commonly only have Sunday to store hop…that includes Wal-Mart & Target, dear Lord…); the store was packed & similar to your encounter, this lady was being picky over the milk cartons, her husband came along & said lets go, but she told him “All these cartons are wet!” & his comeback: “They’re all wet on the inside so it doesn’t matter!” Priceless 😉

    • Thanks, That is a great story Mary. What a great comeback for sure. Have a great holiday my friend.

  • There are some bloody rude people out there I have come across many of them while I am out shopping and if you asked my daughters they would tell you I am one of those rude people but I do not think I am rude

    • You?… Nah. It’s just all the other people that get our way Jo-Anne… LOL.

  • Your post made me wonder if there’s a “People of Costco” parody video like those “People of Walmart” videos. Great timing for a shopping post since it seems like all stores get so crazy in December.

    • Thanks so much. That would be a fun one to find Jeri. I honestly haven’t looked, have you? 🙂

  • I can’t believe the woman said no to moving her cart. How fortunate to have a giant hero come along at just the right time.

    • It was pretty astonishing the say the least Donna. I loved how my hero handle it all. It was fun the watching the women’s reaction too. 😀

    Oh my…I have too many of these stories! LOL Florida seems to be the place where, in those big box stores, the old folks go together and walk side by side down those aisles with their carts! But next time, I think I will look for my very own giant! What a find! Great story!

    • Hi Jacquie. I bet you do… LOL. Aw, I’ve seen that too. It’s as if they don’t know others are around… LOL. Keep an eye out, I know he’s out there… just for you. 😀

  • Hi Susan

    LoL. Wow what a magical story. I am just imagining how the lady felt when this huge guy came to the rescue. What was she expecting her husband to do. Thanks for such an awesome post. Have a nice week

    • Thanks Awazie, Thanks. The expression on her face was indeed priceless… LOL. His answer to her concern was even funnier. 😀

  • This is awesome! My favorite part is her husband asking her if she was in the way! I wish I had a gentle giant like yours with me in the grocery store today. He would have saved me a lot of time and stress. 🙂

    • Thanks Meredith, It was a hoot to have him just show up. For me, he really did save the day not to mention a bunch of time. 🙂

  • Eve Koivula

    Hooray to the giant – who doesn’t love them!
    Considering the hub’s comment, that wasn’t the first time his missus was playing a hog… LOL

    • Hi Eva, I would agree. It would appear she is not an easy learner in this department. 🙂

  • Pat Ruppel

    I like this, Susan. It is indeed interesting out there at times. Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! God bless. 🙂

    • Indeed it is Pat. especially at this time of year. Happy Holidays to you too my friend. 🙂

      • Pat Ruppel

        You bet, Susan, and all the best for you and your family for the holidays. Take care.

  • Jon Jefferson

    People like that always bug me. They are almost as bad as the people in their cars blocking both directions on the road as they hold a conversation.

    • Oh, that is so true Jon. It never ceases to amaze you how unconscious (or not) people can be at times. 🙂

  • Krystyna Lagowski

    That’s hilarious! I recently went to Costco for only the third time in my life, and those carts are seriously challenging to maneuver! From the sounds of it, the aisle hog was a repeat offender. Nice to know there are some gentle giants out there to balance the barometric pressure.

    • Thanks Krystyna, Costco is a regular place for us to shop so We see all kinds of things there… LOL. If it were for those gentle giants it would be untenable at times. 🙂
