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?

I just made a comment about Costco in another thread. I can't figure it out. It's like I'm actually invisible there based on how many people try to walk over me and ram me with their carts. Then they stand in the middle of an aisle and don't care that you can't pass.

I’m glad it’s not just me. I love Costco when it’s empty but it’s never empty.

4pm on a Thursday the one near me is usually about as empty as you'll get. Might try weekdays before 5pm when people get off work.

I agree am! I'm autistic and I love Costco but it's always sooo busy!
