What do you do with the leftovers of that thing?
Dont do what i did and leave it at the bottom of your fridge for over a week, then leave the door open 20 minutes as you restock/clean, then reheat it a day later as part of leftovers.

For my sins against the bord, I was struck with food poisoning and puked for about 8 hours straight in regular 35 minute intervals.

I prayed to costco for deliverance but only the porcelain devil heard my calls that night.

Last time I was in Costco they were selling some enormous TVs and showing one of the new Superman films on them, but they'd put some kind of interpolation on it so it looked like a really bad soap opera.

That sounds like something you that should be brought up to customer service at the very least.

Somehow you have decided that this is the most likely reason- that the cashier is just Hitler incarnate instead of just misinformed or managed poorly.
"You people" is kind of a dogwhistly term dude.

That's in addition to the unprofessional and really out of place lecture they had to sit though before paying for their poo poo.

In the few times they've carded my wife, she usually just points at me loading the lane up and they're like "oh yeah there he is". We might also get something about Store Policy, and if we're really lucky, some B.S. about the cardholder needing to pay for stuff.

I'd like to think why you believe it's appropriate for a cashier to give a couple of folks a hard time like that, to the point where they're uncomfortable, even if it is store policy. Hell, even the assumption that he's buying poo poo for her is out of line.

That's almost as bad as getting the ol' cart to the Achilles.

Question though, is it rude to part abandoned/waiting for food carts parked haphazardly? Like Moses, I tend to clear carts that block the path of the righteous. Some samplerfolk act offended that I laid hands on their cart parked diagonally across the aisle.

Silly as it is, that includes things like spouses if you haven't each gotten your own card for some reason. How aggressively this is enforced can depend pretty heavily on the building, and even then on the specific employees you're dealing with.
True, but does it matter who hands over the card or which Debit card gets swiped if the member is literally 2 feet away from the cashier? If I swing by on the way home and load the cart up with midol and Tampax do I then get questioned about who those items are for?

If they're that protective of the membership rights, why extend the ability for friends to purchase things with cash at all.

I understand I can't just toss my card to my cousin and say go hog wild, but if the member is standing right there is it that much of a problem?

I guess this is all due to every store being run slightly differently as well.

Hell yeah, wild caught and $5 a lb. I buy that poo poo and freeze it..
My wife decided to be fancy and buy the Wild Caught Never Frozen Salmon from the 'Co once.

We take it home directly, chop it up and sprinkle some pepper, salt and lime on it. Delicious looking.

She gets the pan ready while I'm rolling the fish around in seasoning. I pick up one of the chunks with the tongs and I notice something that looks like a strand of hair or a plastic fibre.

That's weird.

I grab a knife to scrape it off and The loving thing recoils from the knife once it makes contact.

I drop it in the sink and look at the rest of the salmonbits soaking in lime.

Little glass filaments writhing around.

The wife wanted communion as we exited with cart and child. The order line seemed pretty big, about 20 people or so, but the Order Kiosk was empty.

Ive had to do two returns in the ~10 years ive had it as an adult.

One was ill fitting baby clothes. The other is in process: bought an ASUS ROG laptop and the right speaker is just busted as poo poo. Anything over 45% volume blows out the channel when the low end kicks in.

Took me longer than the 90 days so Costco Concierge is helping coordinate with ASUS for an RMA/repair.
