How often do they clean the diced onion dispensers for Hot dogs? Not that any answer you give me will prevent me from shoving them in my mouth, but I'm curious.

My Costco got rid of the self checkouts. I think people were just borrowing their friends membership cards then doing self checkout since nobody ever looked at the card. I mean, that's what I was doing. Had to get a membership once they got rid of them.

what the hell, I can't believe a costco ever had self checkouts to begin with. how else would they check the card was yours or try to sell you stamps? that's just insanity

I have a giant thing of crushed red pepper I got at Costco when I first got a college apartment in 2006. It is a decade later and it still isn't finished despite how much crushed red pepper I eat. The pepper is stale and not as flavorful. Still I refuse to relent. If I die before I complete this task, pour the rest of it in my dead mouth and bury me like the failure I am.

jealous of the fries. although those tendies seem a bit expensive for costco food, they must be good.

Always a bit confused why the hot ham and turkey costs so much when they practically give you hot dogs and chicken bakes for free. I guess because of the assembly required? I dunno, who am I to question Costco

My local Costco was robbed at closing time just the other day. Three suspects came in with ski masks to do a smash and grab on the glass jewelry display. The noble Costco employees responded by tackling one of the suspects and detaining him until police came. Would a Sam's Club employee do the same?

Sorry, but the Costco employee should not have done this. He or she is part of the Costco family and put themselves at great risk to tackle a guy, they could have been killed. The merchandise is insured and even if it wasn't, the amazing financial acumen of Costco would allow them to easily absorb the loss. But the Costco employee? Irreplaceable. If they had been killed, no amount of 1.50 hot dogs or tub-sized Queso containers could fill that void. Costco values its employees, it pays them well and treats them nice. This employee should treat themselves better too.

Maybe. I guess none of us ever know how we'd react when put into a situation with great danger and a need to protect something valuable. Like if beloved Costco CEO W. Craig Jelinek told me I had to kill a man for him or the hot dog/fountain drink combo would increase to 1.75....it's hard to know what I'd do in the heat of the moment.

It was actually a complete distraction. While the one set of guys were going after the fake jewelry, the REAL crew was making off with sacks full of delicious all-beef hot dogs, chicken bakes, and pizzas.

They even smashed and grabbed the onion container :(

The area near the frozen aisles is a loving nightmare of blender demos and fatties just parking their carts wherever and impeding people from doing their shopping so they can wait on samples and shove them down their mouths. That's why you need to just park your cart away from that area and venture in by yourself, grab the stuff you need, and get out. It's like hopping in and out of the tank in Blaster Master

Of course there were some fat people, but they plop Costco right near the suburbs and area on Oahu where the richer white folks live. But even the fat Hawaiians had a thing called courtesy and manners that kept them from blocking aisles just to inhale samples.

Also, the Costco food court there was outside and you just walked up to a window to order, you never have to even enter the Costco. Really convenient

For some reason, I was compelled to get the hot turkey and provolone sandwich today. I rarely get it as the dog/Italian sausage are so enticing, but they had just brought out a new tray and they looked good.

Nice toasty bread, good quality turkey, and the provolone goes well with the basil and garlic. It will never beat the hot dog (and a drink with free refill) for value or take its place in my heart, but it's good that Costco provides so many tasty food options to fit any mood.

The wife and I stopped into Costco for a quick dog plus 20 oz drink for $1.50 (refill included, believe it or not), my wallet was in my pocket but you don't need to be a member to use the food court. As we try to slide through the other shoppers checking out, a greeter jumped out into our path demanding to see a Costco membership card. She said that's always been the rule and we werent getting in without a card which I know for a fact is 100% BULLSHIT. I ended up showing the card since I didn't want to hold up the people leaving and I wanted a dog, but I'm not crazy am I? I always used to be able to waltz in, get a dog and get the gently caress out in less than 5 minutes.

this person reflects very poorly on the Costco corporation. I don't want to alarm anyone or make baseless accusations, but the fact that Costco would employ someone like this and not reprimand/fire them for such behavior is disturbing. Are the other Costco employees at this location just turning a blind eye to this power trip? If so, they're just as guilty as she is. That means this entire Costco you went to is corrupt. Which leaves the possibility that ANY Costco could become this corrupt, including my own.

I'm shaken to the core with these revelations.

Costco would be better without the sample people. They aren't real Costco employees (which makes them trash) and their presence just encourages fatty fats to block up the aisles and make it into a Mad Max Costco. There's no need for samples, almost everything at Costco is good and if it isn't they will give you a full refund and listen to your feedback. gently caress the sample people.

Costco must have taken that really lovely Forbes article personally.

Mine is also stocking the palettes of Mexican coke.

I bought a bunch of wine/beer for my wedding at Costco (can't buy liquor in NC except at state run stores) and learned there's a limit by law about how much alcohol an individual can buy at one time in my state. But Costco is super cool and just let my friend "buy" the other half of all the booze right behind me in line using the same Costco membership and credit card I used. PBUC
