Costco has the best tritip. Buy their tritip, marinade it all nice and then grill it up real good gently caress yes, drink a few beers as it cooks maybe another while it rests then cut real nice have a dinner with just some nice cuts and some asparagus or some greenbeans and onions.

And then daaaaang the next day you use the leftovers and make some tritip sandwiches with some good crusty bread that is how you eat

Gassed up at Costco today, but didn't buy anything else.

The gas savings pay for the membership entirely on their own when you're driving a 6.0 v-8 that runs on premium. 13mpg is a bitch.

Also, all but one article of clothing that I am currently wearing came from costco- jeans, boxers, socks, flannel shirt

I loving love costco.

I owned a landscaping company for a few years, and that truck is all I have left of it. I agree that it is not a practical vehicle, and I only drive it maybe one day a week- maybe 2000 miles a year.

It's a nice truck- a Chevy Silverado 2500 with pretty much all of the options, but the gas requirements make it impractical for basically everything other than hauling dirt and mowers.

Also, it'll get up and go when it has to. Nothing can really compare to the roar of eight big cylinders pumping their way towards 100, which is sadly what it as governed at.

I mean, it's probably better that the 5500lbs truck won't go over 100mph, because who knows how it would handle, but it's also really disappointing to get up there and hit the governor.

They don't have liquor around here, so I can't speak to its value.

They do have beer and wine around here, but it's extremely hit or miss. Kirkland does some really good wines, and some really bad wines, and the "kirkland lite beer" is just miller lite or something.

I love costco, but I generally go to Total Wine for my beer and wine purchases....

Hey fuckheads, if you're expecting an isolated shopping experience where other people aren't telling you to get the gently caress out of the way, maybe you should look at how Costco makes money again.

You pay money to get poo poo for cheap. So do other people. This isn't Whole Foods, this is the jungle. You pay whatever you pay per year to get the cheapest poo poo you can. How you get it is up to you, all Costco has to do is put the pallets out there. And make a goddam amazing food court that makes their take and bake stuff taste amazing.

I unironically like Costco for the way they do business and treat their employees and tell their share holders to go gently caress themselves. Getting poo poo for cheap is a bonus, the way they do business and the quality of their products is the real draw for me. Retail done right.

Also I wish I didn't have empathy!

A real alpha move is to not ride bitch on your wide rear end cart, instead you should kind of walk beside it/slightly ahead of it and pull it by the front corner. The other elbow is raised and formed into a point by bringing your cell phone hand to your ear. This takes up the maximum amount of lateral space, and prepares you to joust with tha other big dogs coming your way

I thought the Kirkland Bourbon was good, but then after I bought it one time I realized that I was already drunk before I tasted it the first time. Its not good and overpriced.

But enough about your mom.


I lived in the motherland of Kirkland, WA for a few years. Costco is awesome. They finally opened one here in WI where I live and I signed up a week before they opened the doors. I have a Walmart/Sam's Club maybe 1/5th the distance away but gently caress them in their stupid loving asses. I'll go far out of my way to get better food/stuff and knowing that my money is going to people who can live off of their wages and not cut employee hours to 39.5 just so they don't get benefits (happened to my sister). gently caress them.

I don't like Walmart.

I was very much looking forward to getting some tri-tip steaks which were super cheap in Seattle and extremely good. Yeah, no one has even heard of tri-tip here. Butchers don't even get them. How the gently caress is that even possible? Like.... seriously.

The Kirkland Organic olive oil is real. Most olive oils sold in the US are a mix of a bunch of different olive oils from different regions and even have rapeseed oil/other crazy poo poo in them. Costo is the real deal.

Well, I need gas and I wouldn't mind a hotdog for $1.58. Hmmm.... maybe I should come up with a grocery list that I don't need just to go there.

If I can navigate through a Costco and get what I need and make it out and the total number of other customers I want to murder is <5 then it was a Good Trip.

I mean seriously, don't park your big rear end cart in the middle of the aisle and don't just pull out into the intersections, road rules apply inside the store if you've got a cart.
