Personally, the idea of filthy outsiders getting to purchase a fine hot dog sickens me.

I feel bad for you who will never experience the joy of the crowded indoor costco food court where an old chinese man dozes off and leans on your shoulder while you eat your wiener

With my $0 membership fee (I don't have a membership, remember???) I can spend as long as I want lambasting in the glorious depravity known as the Costco Food Court.

EDIT: It's for the hot dogs dummy.

Ask me about my dream Frasier episode where Frasier and Bulldog oil their heads and then rub them together. It's definitely not a fetish of mine, I swear!

Our Costco is near a movie theater so if you really want to be a cheapo scumbag you can stop in to the food court on your way, purchase a few 25 bottles of water, and smuggle them in. No membership required.

Sure, but if you are a god-tier Wokescumlord you buy a couple of those mana-dogs and loudly snarf 'em down while you cackle at the trash you paid $20 bucks to watch.

Hey Nana,

I just wanna let you know that calories don't necessarily equate to feeling poor. That is unless you have some odd psychosomatic thing where inhaling ubercalories from GodDogs makes you feel dumpsterish.

For those heathens without a membership, just go the main door and say you are heading to the Pharmacy. Then proceed to wander around the store scarfing samples like a normal Costco shopper. Can't check out though.
You do not need a membership to use the Pharmacy.

Their pizza is ridiculous but the dog itself is actually p reasonable unless you're getting it with other stuff, I think my local one claims it's 520, maybe add a bit more for the onions you should be putting on but a p reasonable lunch all things considered.

lol they're supposed to check your membership card against your form of payment at the registers but they're not super thorough about it. My dad's got a corporate membership and I used his card to buy some housewares a while back. Everything was OK until a manager happened to walk by, took a closer look and realized my credit card and the membership card didn't match. She got suuuuuuuper pissed at me, but gently caress it - transaction was already done so there's nothing she could do, and like I told her: I didn't know that was a rule, and maybe get mad at your employee for not catching it rather than a customer for doing it unintentionally.

I was just there for new contact lenses in the first place :confused:

Don't know if he has done this already or not but corporate memberships allow 2 sub memberships on the card. Your dad can add you on his and you would get your own Executive membership card. The only difference is that you would not get the 2% cash back.
I work at Corp and have my son and a sister in law on my account.

Actually spouse does not count. They are part of the main account and get the 2%. I have my wife, and son/sis in law on mine.

If your dad is at the main office, then there is a good chance I know him. I have done alot of support in previous positions for many people.

Hot dog chat: part of the reason the hot dog have stayed $1.50 is that they stopped selling Hebrew Nationals, and built their own meat packing plant. Yes, Costco packs it's own weiners.

Pretty sure they are still Kosher, but yeah they use the Kirkland dogs now.
The meat plant is in Mira Loma, CA and make hot dogs for US/Canada.

I always just assumed Kirkland is their private-label brand, AKA they don't actually make anything, just rebrand other stuff, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Kirkland kosher hot dogs come from the same factory as actual Hebrew Nationals.

Off the top of my head, a couple of the Kirkland beers are actually brewed by the same company that makes Saranac. I know that at Trader Joe's, their hard cider is brewed by Woodchuck.

My favorite thing about Costco is that I don't have to care about shopping.
Its not like when I go to the grocery store for spaghetti sauce, and have 30 different options at various prices and most of them are probably garbage. At Costco I have 1-2 options, and I know they are good and cheap because Costco only sells good stuff.
