Is there really a scenario where anyone would need more than a few days of food and water in a developed country?

I couldn't agree more. Big cloves of garlic? No problem. Onions just get nasty on pizza.

The problem is that the onions need to be at minimum par-cooked first

Obviously this heatwave is across most of the country but I decided to brave Costco on a Saturday here in NH with 105 degree temps.

Fire alarm goes off and everybody is forced to evacuate into the hot parking lot. :kingsley:

Wow I didn't know it was hot enough to do that

Write to Costco and complain about the food court. They seem to actually read the complaints

Especially now that they're ij the middle of switching doughs to a worse formula

The polish had pork, right?

This is also probably why we'll never see al pastor unless it's that gross vegan "al pastor" they put in the fake al pastor salad

The polish was ok but it's no brat.

Thank god they got rid of the polish. I'm glad we got our brat back.

Ordering the brat and hearing "did you mean the polish?" by an inexperienced food court worker was one of the worst things I've ever heard.

Brats are a regional item. Some places have Italian sausage instead but some have nothing

I could be off base here for sure but it seems like they're slowly and methodically adding higher margin items while slowly killing off the clear loss leaders like the polish. Admittedly the overall strategy for the food court has been so unclear, however, that it's hard to figure out exactly what they're trying to accomplish.

I would surmise that there is a battle raging about this internally, with the Costco true believers on one side and the disgusting outside MBAs and shareholder fetishists on the other.

Al pastor will prob never happen because they definitely won't add another pork item on the menu.

Jesus, do you really want that many mooncakes? Even if you're buying them for an event or something, so few people actually like eating them. They're one of the most thrown away holiday foods iirc.

Even more than fruitcake?

I wish they were pickled onions but they're just chopped fresh onions. A pickled onion dispenser would be fuckin legit.

Pickle them yourself in a mix of mustard and soda water

Re: puma socks

I bought the black ones to use as dress socks and most of mine have holes now. Time to buy more and donate any still around in good shape.
I buy socks all at once, so that I only ever have two sets of socks... athletic ankle socks and calf length dress socks. I keep them separate. I hate looking for matching socks if you can’t tell.

Any recommendations for men’s dress socks currently or is there only one choice at the Costco?

Once they had wool Gold Toe dress socks on sale and I still wish I had bought more pairs

I always make sure we have equal parts chocolate candy and hard candy. When I think of Halloween and trick or treatin as a kid I think mini snickers, mini 3 musketeers, mini kitkats ect ect. I like skittles, but chocolate is where it's at. When I give out candy I try to keep the same ratio. I give teens and adults candy if they are dressed up. None of this low effort costumes either ! Gotta be in a mask ATLEAST.

Also, since I'm drinkin all the drat night, if you catch me at the the end of the night you're getting hella candy.

What if these guys showed up to your door?

Just cancelled my membership renewals for next year.

I got the most insanely terrible service from the optical department and then when I went to talk to someone at customer service also. I have no clue what the deal was but both of the people I talked to were extremely rude, interrupted me, and talked down to me like I was speaking another language or something. All I wanted was a copy of my contact lens prescription printed and I was treated like I was asking the staff to borrow a thousand dollars or something. When I asked to cancel my renewal the guy at the counter gave me knives from his eyes, said nothing, and said emotionlessly staring at me “have a nice day” in a very flat, cold way. I can’t really explain it in writing but I just felt like I was being an annoyance to these people. I was so shocked all I could do was laugh, look at my wife, and look back at them like “are you being serious right now?”

The service at my Costco has been getting noticeably worse and I’m not going to shop there anymore. Sorry to anyone who loves Costco, I get it, but there’s no way I’m going to be treated the way I was and give them my money.
