Your Cart is Empty

The 12 Worst Kinds Of Humans You See At The Supermarket

May 22, 2015 2 min read

My goal every time I need groceries is simple - get in, get out and get home as quickly as possible. Grocery stores can be difficult to navigate at the best of times, and a serious pain if its after work or at other peak times. Making it infinitely worse are the characters that can slow you down, drive you nuts or both:

1. The zen master

Just taking her time packing at the checkout. Just chilling. Paying no attention the line growing ever longer behind her. You'd be envious of her carefree ways if you weren't so annoyed. It takes everything in your power to not throw produce at her head.

2. The reduced aisle hogger

Why are you so special that you can have ALL reduced goodies? Just stop it and save some of the reduced sausages for us, will ya? We have needs too, you know!

3. The grouchy staffer

You've been extremely rude and interrupted their inter-colleague conversation by asking if there was any more half and half in back. They tell you no. Without looking. Their lies hang in the air like cheap cologne.

4. The bread squisher

Gee, I wonder which one of the 8 baguettes you've manhandled, squeezed and put back I should choose. Fondled bread is the best bread.

5. The bagging area buffoon

It never fails. The people who know next to nothing about technology, flock to the self check out. Again, must refrain from throwing produce.

6. The queue huffer

Listen, we all want to get home. Huffing down the back of my neck and sighing loudly to show your displeasure won't get any of us there any faster!

7. The overzealous divider

You've only just finished, like just this second finished, unloading your groceries when the person in front of you slams down the divider like they are ashamed to be near your groceries.

8. The trolley abandoner

They're just casually leaving their baskets and trolleys unattended they can wander off somewhere with not a single care that they are totally blocking your passage.

9. The purse rummager

They could be rifling through their 73 loyalty cards or they could be digging around and saying "I know I have exact change here somewhere." Either way, the thought of getting reading while waiting in line never occurs to this person.

10. The shelfblockers

All you want to do is just swoop in and grab your favourite can of soup but someone is in the way, examining the labels and doing complex calculus to see which brand is more cost effective. If you don't know what you want, step away from the shelves!

11. The pushover parent

Child wants candy. Mom says no. Child asks again in really annoying voice. Mom says no. Child throws a screaming fit. Mom caves. Little brat: 1, Mom: 0

 12. The extreme couponer

The dedication it takes to amass such a large quantity of money saving coupons is impressive. But getting stuck behind one? Not cool.   What sort of folks drive you insane at the supermarket? h/t: Cosmopolitan

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
