You have identified the one goon project that can be accomplished by 98% of goons, and the 2% failure rate should produce at least one good thread.

Why doesn't Costco offer oil changes? It'd be nice to drop my car off and have them take care of that while I'm dropping a couple hundred on alcohol and groceries

Yeah, it's weird that they will change your tires and battery if you want them to, but not the oil. I wonder if it has to do with disposal issues or something.

We at Whole Foods will continue to look smugly at the Costco masses, but re: shoplifting, our annual sales losses due to shoplifting were around a half million dollars. We have several armed security guards on call in the building, at least 2-3 undercover guards walking through the store all day long (they actually carry baskets with food to blend in and have kevlar lined backpacks) and there's a room in the back of the store where they take shoplifters to be held until the cops arrive. Several times I've seen people being lead out in handcuffs. I didn't realize how seriously retail stores took shoplifting until I started seeing how they operate from the inside.

After reading all the Costco hot dog talk, I picked up stuff to make my own dogs last week. Brioche buns, organic grass fed uncured dogs, house-made relish, and organic stone ground mustard - about $30 for 8 dogs, but it was good. :smugdog:

Costco must be trying to be culturally sensitive to the British by maintaining the level of depressing food that they are used to. If they revealed their full glory to the British there would be panic and chaos.

So I suggested that Costco membership to my folks, and turns out they have a sams club membership. Instead of instantly telling them to gently caress off with that, I actually did some research. There are lots of tradeoffs, but the most important thing is definitely the food court. Does this look familiar to any of you?

That's pretty decent for Wagyu, though it's not A5. My favorite steakhouse does 12oz strips for $130 so getting one fresh for DIY would be a good deal.

Jokes on you, you could have bought eighty-six 1/4 lb. all-beef hot dogs with eighty-six 20 oz. fountain drinks with refill for the price of your 12 oz rear end in a top hat steak. That's 21.5 lbs of pure beef and 26.88 gallons of refreshing fountain beverages.

where is YOUR faith, brother?

what would we find if we looked in your closet, eh? Pork cheeseburgers? A SAMS CLUB MEMBERSHIP? WHAT ARE YOU HIDING

In my freezer you will in fact find a great many pork products, most of which were purchased at Costco. Pork is not the issue.

It seems to me that your argument is beef is superior to pork, where I am suggesting that this distinction is irrelevant. They are all being served by Costco and all come with a free refill.

It is fine if you prefer beef to pork, but you cannot claim that a Costco built before he retired is acting against the wishes of St. Sinegal. Your accusations and schism attempts cause discord, resulting in Peace not Being Unto Costco.

What's this Gourmet Dog Japon? Some sort of fake Japanese hotdog? Japan isn't known for dogs at all and they're usually total dogshit when you can find them unless you just buy the imported ones, ironically Costco probably has the best hotdogs in the country (and even then they're pork, not beef).

Costco needs no "cultural appropriation", their offerings are universal and loved no matter which country you're in!

They're hotdogs with wasabi mayo, nori flakes, and tobiko.

There is a Costco not far from Safeco Field, so one could conceivably eat Costco dogs in front of this vendor while maintaining cold eye contact. It would require sacrificing refill access, but I rarely need more than one 20oz fountain beverage.

I once witnessed a man eat not one, but TWO entire chocolate froyos in the time it took me to eat my chicken bake. He was a young, fit, well dressed businessman.

This is a loving feat. That man decided that he wanted to eat a quart of frozen yogurt in one sitting and did not want to pay more than $3.30 for it.

What's a good coffee to buy from Costco? I picked up their House Blend yesterday and I'm pretty disappointed.

Were you hoping for a light roast/breakfast blend? The fact that it's dark-roast only is unfortunate, but I can't think of a ground coffee in a can that's anywhere near as good for less than triple the price of KS.
