Supermarkets are unique establishments. Any place that people from all walks of life visit frequently tend to attract some pretty interesting characters, and the supermarket is at the top of the list of places like that. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, everyone has to go to the store to get their groceries. This is what makes the supermarket a breeding ground for some seriously questionable situations. So, take a look at some of the strangest people and scenarios ever encountered at the supermarket. Some of them might look a little too familiar.
No more electric carts at the front? No problem!
Fresh Out Of The Shower
Sometimes, it’s important to get to the grocery store no matter what the circumstances. When your mom needs you to go get a filet of salmon you don’t always have a choice, even if you just got out of the shower.
This girl, however, looks like she’s making the most of her situation, deciding to take a little photoshoot at the fish section. This day and age, it’s highly possible this earned her thousands of likes on Instagram. Surely, the worker in the back hasn’t seen anything like this before.
Risking It All
It appears this woman wasn’t willing to wait for the cooler to be re-stocked or come back for her favorite frozen treat. She wanted it then and there and if that means risking life and limb, so be it.
She must be feeling extra daring today because one wrong move and all of the contents of her purse might end up at the bottom of the of that freezer. We hope that the ice cream sandwich was worth it!
They Found Love In The Cereal Aisle
While most people might take their wedding photos in scenic destinations or somewhere that’s important to a couple’s relationship, these two felt the aisle of a supermarket so this background was the most fitting.
It must be interesting going to get a box of Cheerios only to see these people taking up the whole aisle to get the perfect wedding shot. We’re sure both of their parents will be thrilled when they show these to their family and friends at their wedding.
Starting Over Entirely
When it’s time to move home for the summer during college, it’s not unusual for students to leave most things behind because they’re too “exhausted” from finals to actually move out.
Usually, they bank on the idea that their parents will gift them with a trip to Target so they can get all the essentials they more than likely left next to the dorm dumpsters. This girl went all out and knew that she’d not one but two full carts to satisfy her needs.
When They’re Out Of Wheelchairs
At most supermarkets, electric wheelchairs are provided for those who might have a difficult time navigating the many aisles of the store. However, it looks like they might have been out of them on this day, so this woman thought the best idea was to just put this elderly woman in the cart instead.
We have no idea how she got in or will be able to get out, but only time will tell. In all honesty, at least she looks comfortable.

Llama Service Animals
Seeing animals in stores, usually dogs, isn’t all that unusual these days. They’re typically service animals that provide emotional or physical support for their owners. A llama, however, is a little more unusual to see, especially somewhere like a supermarket.
These cashiers seem to be caught off-guard as well, with one man even taking a picture with his cellphone. All we hope is that the llama is getting a snack because there are few things more threatening than a hungry llama.
“Nine Days A Week”
We thought the Beatles had topped everyone with their song “Eight Days A Week,” but this store managed to one-up them by staying open nine days a week. We’re not entirely sure what this means, but you can imagine how disappointed someone might be when they arrive only to see that the store is closed.
They better keep their word or else someone might claim false advertising. We wonder if they’re even open on holidays.
Age Is Just A Number
When people usually think about older couples, the image isn’t always very thrilling. However, this couple is a breath of fresh air and are proving that age really just a number.
They’re having fun doing mundane things like shopping which shows that having fun isn’t just for young people. If they look this casual, chances are that they do things like this on a regular basis. Everyone should strive to have this outlook on life.
The Training Never Stops
When you’re involved in a sport like gymnastics, training is 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You need to be at the top of your game, and it’s clear that these girls are ready to go at any time or place.
Looks like they can’t even go to the store without practicing some routine most people will never be able to do in their lives. Imagine going to pick up a jar of jelly and having to maneuver around this.
Anything For Instagram
Apparently, there isn’t anything that hardcore Instagram users won’t do to get the perfect picture. While most people might take pictures in front of a beautiful backdrop or of their expensive entree, this girl settled on the floor of her local supermarket.
We respect her for working with what she has on hand, and now we can see the kind of deals available at the store. If anything, the store should use this as an advertisement!
See how testing out products might not always a great idea!
Just What The Doctor Ordered
While most babies rely on milk, formula, and baby food to survive, it looks like this store suggests that beer and wine are what they really need. It’s either that or so parents can grab themselves a bottle or six-pack for when their baby finally falls asleep at night.
This way, they don’t have to go to a whole different aisle. It’s one-stop-shopping at this store. However, buying baby products and alcohol at the same time might result in some questioning looks.
Perfect For Art Class!
When summer is coming to an end, stores become increasingly hectic with back to school sales in full swing. Chances are, most kids dumped all of their school supplies in the trash on the last day, so it’s time to head to the store and re-up on supplies for the upcoming year.
Luckily, this store is having a sale of chef’s knives for the kids going back to school, so your child will never have to ask to borrow their classmate’s again! Don’t forget to buy a sharpening stone while you’re at it!
It Was A Late Night
Looks like this woman headed to the market to get some much-needed sustenance from a long night out, but couldn’t manage to make it out of the door. She found a nice little spot in the juice aisle and decided to take a quick nap.
Luckily for her, it looks like she already bought some snacks, so she’ll be able to wake up and immediately satisfy her cravings. We hope that floor was washed recently!
We’re going to assume that the purpose of this sign was to inform people that it is the aisle for canned cat food, but it’s safe to say they missed their mark. If the wording wasn’t bad enough, the cat in the picture looks like it knows it’s going to become cat food.
Also, the lady’s creepy smile isn’t helping anything either. Hopefully, this store realized what was wrong and did something about the sign before it traumatized some little kid.
Testing Out The Products
This woman is taking all of the necessary precautions to make sure that she’s purchasing the right toilet plunger for her. While most of them work about the same, she felt that she needed to test it out on her face, most likely to make sure that the suction was up to her standards.
Safe to say she’s probably the only person to ever do this, so we can only imagine how she tries out other products. Let’s hope that plunger hadn’t been used and returned to the store.
Put Him On The Payroll
We get it, taking your young child to the supermarket isn’t always the most ideal thing. Usually, they complain that they want to go home or are constantly asking for things they know they’re not supposed to have.
This kid has given up entirely and has resorted to being dragged on the back of the store-provided electric cart. His dad doesn’t seem to mind and the kid’s cleaning the floor for free. The janitor should thank him on their way out!
Had To Pick Up Some Grooming Supplies
Even if this guy was on his way to a Halloween party, most people in the store would still probably be pretty concerned. However, something tells us that’s not the case, and this guy prefers to live his life looking like something out of a deranged children’s cartoon.
The cherry on top is the little fox that he’s carrying around, most likely to let people know that he’s a fox. In case anyone was seriously wondering.
“They’re My Children”
Some people just can’t go anywhere without their beloved animals, and apparently for this woman, it’s her three cats. We’re willing to bet that she doesn’t have any children, and bought the stroller in order to transport her trio of felines anywhere that she goes.
While she might be proud of her pride of Siamese cats, the people around her appear less than impressed. Not everyone wants to be around cats when buying food and other products.
Sometimes, if you love food so much, you just have to take a picture with it. Here, it’s quite obvious that this woman’s favorite part of the store is the cheese aisle. With so many options, we’re sure she stands there for hours before making a decision.
You can only imagine the people who patiently waited for her to finish her photo shoot before grabbing a cheese that she hadn’t managed to lay on. We hope she has this framed somewhere.
Sometimes, if nobody wants to meet you for lunch at Costco, your second-best option is to bring along a stuffed animal. This woman looks like she’s having a stimulating conversation with a Pikachu doll and it even appears that she bought it something to eat as well.
Surely, they had a nice day at Costco shopping around and grabbing lunch, so we wonder where they’re off to next? Also, does the stuffed animal sit in the front or have a car seat?
