This makes no sense. They ignored the stuff in front of them?

The cashier didnt push the button to make the conveyor belt convey the stuff to him and it was still down toward the other end.

As for the receipt checker not seeing the asparagus I dunno, it was on top of some other stuff but it was right there in plain sight.

I made a drawing of what happened



part (1) i have reached the checkout lane, there is a group of people in front of me who have a cart full of stuff but nothing on the conveyor belt. I place some small items (peaches, asparagus) on the conveyor belt at the far end, since I can't move any closer to the cashier because of the people, and leave the large items (TP, other stuff) in the cart.

part (2) the cashier moves my cart up, takes my costco membership card, scans the stuff in the cart, pushes a button, and the credit card reader beeps and I remove my card. He hands me my receipt and my costco membership card and I notice that the conveyor belt was not rolled forward with my other items. I inform him politely and he rings them up too in a seperate transaction (two receipts!).

part (3) I reach the receipt checker at the exit door, I hand her both receipts and explain why I have two. She looks at all the stuff and counts it, then asks whether I got asparagus. The asparagus is on the upper basket/kid seat part of the cart on top of the box of peaches, I point to it and say "yeah its right there" and she bids me a good day and I leave to my parking spot which was really close to the entrance (yeah!) and drive home.

It tends to happen when the cashier has several people in a row either not have a cart or not unload anything onto the belt.

man you got so much room after the registers and before the food court. ours is seriously like maybe 2 cart-widths, but with the line and stuff at the food court its like 1 cart and usually blocked with people standing around, and getting out is awful. its' a terrible design and i wish they'd revamp and put the food court outside or something.

Those areas are on the other side of the store (diagonally) from the incident area.

Like imagine you're above the store and just behind the back left corner of it as it would be orientated when you came in, looking across the longest diagonal from that point to the opposite corner (if the store had no roof) you'd be looking right at the food court/ incident area. The point to your immediate left is the bakery and along that same wall a ways is the beef area and then the rotisserie chickens.

I have never seen a Costco with this layout and its hurting my brain. Every one I've been in you check out, have the food court straight ahead (except for one that is outdoors) and you exit to your left to get the receipt person.


I have the opposite problem almost every time. I don't use a cart because I carry all my items in my hands like a man and without fail they'll scan my poo poo on the belt and then also start scanning the next idiot's cart. Or they'll put my stuff in the next idiot's now empty cart if that idiot put all his poo poo on the belt.

It's almost like there is a small number of standard layouts that are used for each store


Current coupon item reviews:

Coconut almonds: these should be called coconut bombonds because they're so hecka bomb. Final grade: A

stonefire naan bites: INFERIOR to the larger full size naans for some reason, more bready or something? Final grade: C-

craisins: amazing if you like dried cranberries. The value is off the charts as it's basically half off- $4 off $8. Final grade: A- based on price if you like cranberries

vitamin water zero: Vitamin water zero kind of loving sucks. The Kirkland Vitarain (basically the knockoff vitamin waters) are way way better and cheaper. Final Grade: C-

stainless steel paper towel holder: not bad but again, basically poo poo compared to the king of paper towel holders, the Simplehuman tension holder, which is lifechanging. Final grade: N/A buy the simplehuman

smart water: I don't know what smart water is, nor do I trust it. Final grade: smart water?

yeah i bought these last sunday when i picked up more bitchin' sauce and haberan cheese block and some misc stuff. they're like, really floury-tasting or something. they're edible, but not great. it does not work at all with the bitchin' sauce either, which is kinda disappointing. idk might be fine if i made a curry to dip into.

also my costco carried these strawberry filled croissants with powder sugar next to their plain ones. i think i'd probably give it a B-/C+. you get 8 of them for a buck or two more than you pay for the 24-pack of plain, so less value there. the strawberry filling is like, rather super runny and idk kinda offputting. they aren't that sweet, which i think is fine, but would be better if they were like an almond croissant with a thicker marizpan+raspberry filling instead

My Costco in Hawaii is an outdoor food court old design. We check out and the the tires and ice and coffee grinding are along both sides of a huge isle as you exit to the left, the one here in Washington has the inferior interior food court and it sucks trying to both order food and exit the store, although obviously the one here on the mainland has 100% more variety.

Compare the calorie counts. The cheese and pepperoni are comparable, it's coming from somewhere (it is more cheese).

Bell peppers are bitter. They don't magically become not bitter because they're not as bitter as a lemon.

That's like saying a peach isn't sweet because it's not as sweet as a slice of cake.
