So, ehBeth and I have been emailing about how to tell single guys from coupled guys at the grocery store by what they have in their baskets. It's gotten me thinking about shopping styles and such. So, anyone who'll post answers to these Qs would be helping me in my quest for knowledge (it's gone beyond picking up guys).
1. Age (-ish)
2. Gender (in case we don't already know)
4. Typical grocery list
5. Typical method of collecting groceries
6. Typical time/day to go to the grocery store.
what else should we know?
I wondered how long it'd take to get that here.
What they have in their basket? Dunno. Look for a lipstick ring? Seems like a pretty forward way to go about things.
hahaha, you saw it here before you saw it in the email didn't you? Ya wanna go first?
Here's a pointer: if he's got feminine hygiene products, he's taken but probably at a point where he's takeable, too.
Yes, femprods are a give away.
chicken (frozen boobs)
whole stewed tomatoes
whatever spices I am missing
tabasco (got the smoked chipotele version last time)
cheese (usually cheddar but I also get philly and a cheese called "port wine" that I really like)
rice (not instant crap)
bacon (usually turkey bacon but not by choice)
5) In several clicks I will have my standard order prepared online. I do the shopping in 3 minutes this way. A really hot gal delivers it the next day.
6) If I ever go, it's usually just for milk and such, so I go around 7 on weekdays or weekends. it's not uncommon for me to go at 3 a.m. though either.
Forgot beer. That's a staple. sometimes I get rice bowls too but I have no idea why. They always go bad so I'll prolly stop gettin' them.
so craven orders a 23 year old single female with his groceries? things are verra different in california.
I love how helpless some men look in the produce section.
And then there are the poor married guys on their cells asking the wife for a decision about what to buy.
I've met some very nice men in the produce section at a grocery store. I spent a couple of very nice years with one of them.
ehBeth, nah, no need to order the femfolk as they are the ones who deliver the food.
hey pdog, type up and post your grocery list. Thanks.
Thanks Craven (and though this isn't about nutrition, I had to notice that there were no green vegies in your list).
4. short, sweet and fast. artery choking stuff.
bacon, eggs, butter, bread, sausage, red meat.
5. you know which aisles, what you're after, where
the stuff you want is, carry a half empty basket
or push an empty cart around, and be in and out
in less than 10 minutes.
6. when the parking lot is empty.
I have noticed that gay men have the neatest grocery carts. Every single item is placed just so. Single men tend to toss things in willy nilly. Kinda like the batchelor pads of shopping. Single men also seem to buy a lot of BBQ cuts of meat - vegetarians aside.
Married men buy more bulk items.
These are just observations from my neck of the woods.
My cousin gets the greens and fruits. Produce in America is as good as English in Japan. I've lost what little interest I had. At least I can get triscuits again, and good milk.
If I were to buy the produce I'd buy:
cabbage (then I'd buy soy sauce as well for yaki soba)
dried fruits (various)
cantalope (prefer the taste of honey dew but prefer the color of cantalope)
that's a riot Ceili, i see that here too what you said about gay men. cracked me up.
i wonder why a loaf of bread looks half the size it was when i get home...i'm gonna have to pay more attention.
