We have similar problems at our store, doesn't every store?
We have free cookies for kids and some of those kids are 40 and then help themselves to a doughnut too. One woman goes to our deli and samples about 5 or 6 items and never buys a thing. Nothing we can do about it, it's free.

I see these type of people ALL the fricken time, especially at COSCO. Not only do they hop from sample to sample but they think nothing about leaving their cart in the fricken middle of the aisle while they walk to the sample area, clogging up traffic....... When I see this, I usually take some items out of their cart and then also put other items in their cart....... F them!!!!!

I hate inconsiderate people.......
