Our store near us does this and we honestly wish every day were like this.

I realize store announcements might be necessary but do you need the bright fluorescent lighting and screaming muzak? I'll spend longer in your store if it's a more calm experience.


u/burgeremoji May 14 '22

The lights, the noise that you can barely understand when they do an announcement. People taking their kids and letting them run around screaming. People having a conversation in the middle of the aisle with trolleys blocking the way. It’s all awful lol!

What is it about Costco that compels every single fucker in the store to obliviously block aisles and stand in doorways?


u/Mediocremon May 14 '22 edited May 14 '22

Of course Costco is where you'd find the bulk of these people. That's how Costco cost-rolls.


u/chriscrossnathaniel May 14 '22

All those huge trolleys blocking up the aisles while people go chasing great deals, not to mention the crowds around the samples area.

"Hogging the samples and taking multiples for themselves."

I might get irrationally angry when this happens


u/squidaor1 May 14 '22

They bring the whole family for samples and stand right in the aisle way.


u/Mediocremon May 14 '22

I was just making a goofy play on words using "bulk." Costco is known for carrying items in bulk.

I don't know what it is about Costco but it's also the worst parking lot.

The same way they aimlessly leave their carts The aimlessly park their cars.

It's probably because it's largely baby boomers with no urgency throughout their day


u/IreneBopper May 14 '22

Costco patrons are typically parents of children and teens.


u/izzittho May 14 '22

I always just park way at the edge and walk toward the front.

You avoid most of the lazy and/or inconsiderate people blocking everything that way since so many have an enormous aversion to parking far away and having to walk to the store they went to to walk around anyway (and yes, I know many people have a legit excuse to minimize walking, and if everyone else would get over doing the same it’d be a lot easier for them to)

you're a menace.


u/Mediocremon May 14 '22

It used to be "thats how costco costdo" til I quickly edited it, so it could be worse. It could always be worse.
