Meijer is fantastic

The Meijer near me has about 20 checkout lines, and 15 of them are now self-serve, and then they only have one cashier line open. I don't like that.

are you single? if so, probably not. Gas is cheaper but probably a wash with a 30 minute drive at best.

It's worth the 30 minute drive if you have a 32 gallon gas tank.

Trip report, 8.28.2017

1. Had the brat w/beverage. Used deli mustard and onions.

2. Bought a 32" Visio TV to replace the one on my desk that died.

3. Didn't get these today, but these $20 Costco hiking shoes are probably the best shoes in which I've ever hiked. I bought them exclusively for a hiking vacation out in Arizona and Utah, put about 35 miles on them in a week, they have great grip while rock scrambling, and I never felt a minute of foot pain. I was genuinely surprised at that. Some reviewers say that don't last long, but gently caress it... they're $20. Practically disposable.

4. They had these as samples and I liked them so I bought a bag.

Chips isle.

Is that... an actual place? Can I vacation there?

Also I bought as PowerStation jump starter/air compressor at Costco for $70 a few months ago. Now that I've gotten some use out of it (as a road-trip laptop power supply/phone charger/radio at the drive-in), I can give it a double thumbs-up. And if I need a jump start or tire inflated, there it will be.

Can't find a pic. The only one of the model I bought is an ebay pic.

My local butcher is actually cheaper than Costco on most meats. I get delicious ribeye cap for $6.99 a pound while the 'co wants $18.99. I've gotten similar deals on brisket, while pork shoulder is always cheaper at Costco.

The difference might be between Prime and Choice. Prime meat is MUCH more expensive... but in my opinion you can very much taste the difference.

That being said, I just get the cheaper NY Strip Loins at $6 per pound, because that's usually good enough for my simple taste.

I could never buy meat at Costco, in the quantities they still, without a freezer.

yeah, dancing krusty pigboy doesn't know what he's talking about. Some of us actually have families and it makes sense to buy meats in bulk.

Now, the fact I've had to build a shelving system to hold my various sherpa throws... go ahead and lol that.

I've bought 4 Sherpa throws so far, one small and one king sized for the house, and two small ones as Christmas gifts.

But I think I need one more queen sized one, for me. I have several different places I like to sit and I don't like having to carry a throw from room to room, like an animal.

So, yeah.

Who would ever need a King Size? Are you a literal giant? Are you sharing it with a small village? Iíve got a Queen Size and I have no idea what to do with, like, 2/3 of it. Do you want to wrap yourself up like a burrito thatís almost entirely tortilla?

Yeah, the King I bought really is just way too big, and I'm a 6'0 tall guy. So it's getting moved to the entertainment room where it's big enough to cuddle with a lady underneath it, and I'll get a Queen for the family room where the King currently resides.

On my way out I accidentally gave the receipt checker my receipt for pepperoni pizza and soda and she marked it off anyways.

At my church they always look closely at the receipt, and your cart. The other day they lady says, "Uh oh..." as she is checking things, and begins counting again.

I just stand there, cool as a cucumber, aspect at rest, almost beatific look upon my face.

She recounts, says, "Oh, ok, it matches," and allows me to exit.

Also a few months ago I wanted to just go to the customer service counter, on the left. The lady at the door stopped me, told me I had to go in the entrance door an extra 7 feet to the right. I told her I had no other business except customer service.... but she insisted I walk in the entrance, around the pillar separating the doors, and then go to customer service. I'm in my 40s and felt ridiculous doing this... and I asked her if she knew this was ridiculous... but it was very important to her that I walk an extra 7 feet and go around the pillar.

Not even through the registers... just around the pillar separating the entrance from exit, instead of straight into the exit. It was... I'm sorry, but it was stupid. The rare Costco misstep.

Serious question: do the door people actually count each individual item? Even if you have like 200 of them in 4 shopping carts?

I had one zealously try, once... and she even said, "Uh oh, my count doesn't match," and counted again.

You just stand there being patient with them. Be. Patient.
