When I was in high school I worked part-time at the local A&P Grocery store. This old man came in once a month and bought a bag of Purina dog food. He said he ate it because that was all he could afford to live on. Never saw him get in/out of a car, always walking. The produce manager would give him old stuff that was to be thrown away.

I was at a Costco in S.CA. There the Food Court is outside. If I shop alone I will pick a table, push my cart next to it and unload a few things to 'claim' my spot while I get my hotdog. MOST people understand this.
On this occasion while standing in a long line I noticed a woman had moved into my table and sent her kids to the food line.
Getting my food and heading for the soda machines today seemed like an appropriate day to switch to Coke w/o ice (and w/o a cover)
I approached my table and explained to the lady "Ma'am, my table, you moved my stuff". "No Comprende" she exclaimed and waved me off.
I persisted "Ma'am, my table, my stuff!" "No Comprende" she repeated and went on to explain something and point to her kids in line.
I set my coke on the table and proceeded to pick up my purchases and load them in the cart. Acting agitated and disgusted I picked up the last of my purchases and loaded them in my cart. I reached for my drink and being the klutz I sometimes am dumped it in the lady's lap.
I am still amazed at her quick mastering of the English Language. it was apparent she had spent a lot of time in truck stops.
With my most sincere apology I explained she could just keep my table, "it's wet anyway".
I just love Costco.
