Costco's helping me eat better and lose weight:
  • Normandy blend? ✓
  • Garofalo organic pasta? ✓
  • Signature Frozen Tilapia? ✓
  • PBUC? ✓

A rookie mistake! I removed frozen tilapia to my cart before finding the Ferrero Rocher. Before long, I was more worried about fishy trimethylamines than delicious chocolate and hazelnuts and abandoned the venture.

But of course, the fault lies not in our aisles but in our carts. PBUC

Anyone else do 'light cheese?' I never order slices. I order whole pizzas to get like, three days worth. Always light cheese. The default amount is bordering on hubris

Also, a slice with an egg on top is very good.

According to the employees behind the counter all the pizzas are made hours in advance and they just pull them out of the cooler as needed.

Huh. At my location, they're whipped up on the fly. It looks they toss pre-stretched dough onto the sauce rotator then follow up with toppings.

Not to say this wasn't a dick move but I'm not understanding how it's racist.

It's just something that happens at specifically managed Costcos, most locations in my experience will not care about two people using the same card no matter what their personal status.

I see three angles:
  • Mixed-race triggered suspicion.
  • East Indians don't rate consideration of low hit-rate on such spiels
  • It was a 'you people' spiel addressing her according to racial stereotype

Did we read the same story? She was never ok with the transaction "once she was aware they were married", in fact she specifically indicated twice that she wasn't even after understanding that they were together (marital status is completely irrelevant in terms of these rules btw) she just shut the gently caress up and completed the transaction, which was the right move because she was being an idiot. We know from the story that the cashier was already completing the transaction when she was told, near the end, that they were married, so obviously that didn't change the calculus.

She also specifically indicated that she found the general transaction against the store rules, which backs up my synopsis a lot more than it backs up yours.

sorry I just don't agree with your points, nor do I feel that you are accurately portraying the story as written. That's ok though, I doubt either of us wants to argue about this and it's fine to have different opinions.

Question: Would she have suspected them if the missus were white?
Implication: Race-based inclusion in 'the set of all persons to be suspicious of'

Question: If she suspected them anyways and they were white, would she have given them poo poo? Given the, "you people," angle I would assume not
Implication: Race-based exclusion from 'the set of all customers not to hassle'

I really don't think I'm reaching here

it's just another example of useless racial-profiling yielding a false-positive (which is all it ever does).

Is Costco worth it for me, the typical pathetic single male goon? Most of the food stuff is too much for one person, except stuff that lasts a long time I guess.

I don't really drive much, so the cheaper gas isn't a big thing for me.

They're excellent for eggs, fish and frozen vegetables even if you're single. They're also great for laundry detergent, paper products and lots of rice and grains. They also sell giant bags of greens and tons of baked goods, depending on your greens and baguette consumption.

Tank tops.

They:
  • absorb sweat
  • Prevent rear end crack
  • Prevent under belly display and contact

Never deal with that poo poo again! Just make sure to buy proper 'undergarment' tank tops. I buy Fruit of the Loom tagless ones. They're like socks for your trunk. Go down to your thighs. I bought hanes the other day and they were so short that I just threw them out. Fruit of the Loom is good.

I started using double-edged safety razors a few years ago? They're both better and cheaper. I'm never going back. Getting people onto cartridges must've been an advertising coup on par with inventing the 'bacon & eggs' breakfast.

The only downside is that you have to be mindful of force and angle. If I shaved all over or had shaky hands, I'd use cartridges. But for normal everyday face-shaving, the safety razor is better and cheaper.

I don't eat fast food, if anything because I can't taste oil. I barely use any oils when I cook because they're calories without flavor, except butter does have a flavor. But saying avocado oil has flavor is just bizarre, avocado itself has no flavor so why would the oil have flavor? Where would it come from?

Next you'll be telling me that turmeric has no flavor

It's like a smooth, mellow cross between earthiness, 'green' and a minute dab of butter.

I accidentally grabbed a cucumber lime Gatorade and I was kind of shocked at how much I liked it.

That first sip definitely broke my brain for a moment. It's one thing if you reach for a coke and it's actually Diet Dr. Pepper, it's another thing entirely when your Gatorade tastes like vegetables. Once I got over the initial shock, I finished the bottle pretty quickly. Cucumber is refreshing as gently caress.

On a continuing 'cucumber water' theme, Gatorade is doubly refreshing when cut 1:1 with water. Going to have to buy some of that later
