I'm passing on the blessings from like a page ago where someone recommended the garlic lime shrimp and they are truly a gift. Since they are already cooked and the tail removed, just put them in a fancy bowl or make little cracker/shrimp/avocado bites.

I donít think Iíve seen either of these in SoCal.

This is good advice. I would get my CPAP supplies from a Costco in a hot minute if I could. Instead I use a lovely DME across the street from Costco and I loathe them with every fiber of my being.

Does it come with a soda + refill? Didn't think so.

I would guess most donger owners would gladly refill as many times as possible, and itís only kind to offer rehydration between refills.

A few weeks back I bought a single pack of socks from Costco and a hot dog at the food court. I accidentally handed her the hot dog receipt and she took two seconds to look at it, marked it off and sent me on my way.

Long ago I sinned. There was a receipt checker at the Costco close to where I lived at the time. The receipt checker from hell. Checked every single thing. Twice.

I had a great trip, lots of stuff. The checker was there, beady eyes and waiting, I could tell they started salivating at the thought of inspecting my haul.

I approached, receipt in hand. Initially held forward as is customary. Then getting closer, starting to crumple in my outstretched hand. Then getting nearly close enough for the handoff, looking straight into the eyes of the hellbeast I put the wadded receipt in my mouth, gave a good chew, eyes locked. I kept walking straight out the door and spit the receipt into the trash.

The hellbeast bothered me no longer.

I just realized that if I shifted all of my spending (mostly Amex today) to the Costco Visa last year, I would have received a five figure refund.

Why the gently caress do I have an Amex any more is what Iím wondering.

Yes the generic cash back isnít good but the other categories with more refund would get me there.

Got gas at Costco today. One of the food court workers just got off shift and was talking to his buddy who was just finishing up the gas station shift. The story I overheard was this: someone at the food court bought a slice of pepperoni pizza. After consuming the entire slice, with the exception of a single piece of the aforementioned pepperoni, the miscreant customer went to complain to the manager about the quality and size of the pizza and demanded a full refund. And, sadly, the manager granted the refund, in full. I get itís policy but the abuse was shameful.

Turns out my Costco did get just a few Ďliveí Christmas trees returned in the few days after Christmas, all for full refunds, but according to the employees Ďhundreds.í

I have never seen this take longer than 3 seconds.

Iíve timed them at ours. First they have to pay a compliment and half the time literally pinch the cheeks or pat the shoulder of the little one. Then they ask some question. Maybe about a favorite thing they bought at Costco or how school was. Then they wait for a response and maybe follow up. I poo poo you not. Then they inspect the receipt and mark off the items. Then, and only then is it doodle time. Iíve never seen a happy face take so long but oh the artistry some think they have. I canít believe itís not Salvador Daliís best rendition of Mickey Mouse. Maybe an elephant or god knows what. But itís not four lines. Itís forty strokes to draw these, like they are masters at Japanese calligraphy.
God forbid you start to walk out the door while they are drawing. Then they just take longer.

They do this for every single goddamned child.

I was fine when it was just a three second smiley face.

Last night in line at the 'co the people ahead of me were confused and somewhat upset they couldn't pay the cashier to take their money and have someone pick up their car, get gas, and bring the car to the front doors. Is that a thing?

Maybe Iceland or NYC.

My boss loves part time in manhattan and apparently Costco delivers, and itís awesome. Order on app, free delivery in a couple of hours.

Answer me honestly here....what kind of conversations do you have with your barber, or stylist, or whoever cuts your hair?


We talk about all kinds of stuff. Travel, sports, new restaurants in the area (or new to us). I try to not ask them about work, because they are at work, and I only talk about my work if the rent something interesting (not just bitch). Some of my family also goes to the same person, so sometimes there is a little family gossip (not telling of horrible family secrets obviously).

Iím fine with small talk. I am not fine with people wasting my time when I am trying to leave a store when I already paid and I have a thousand other things to do and a screaming two year old.

It to be nice and fast, and it has evolved past nice into annoying.

Sure, Iím an awful person, and an rear end in a top hat, but it doesnít mean they arenít wasting my time.

Went for the double communion today at the ĎCo.

Also got holy water (basil Haydenís and Laphroaig are off $6 each when you buy two, such a good deal).

They had cowboy brand lump charcoal, which is a step down from BGE but was also a great deal (so much so I got 50# of it).

Then a ton of other stuff and how boy there goes $300 before you know it.

At mine there is a Pizza Hotline phone by the checkout so you can order your fresh hot pizza while you wait to check out and then pick it up outside. But itís only whole pizzas, not the whole food court menu.

Went for water and napkins yesterday, had lunch (double communion) and got 3 cases of water, four pairs of shorts, and so much other stuff literally one other item would have necessitated a second cart.
