costco doesn't need your help

at being a pain in the ass. you know what i mean. the lines are long- the people have a shitload of stuff bulging out of their carts they can barely push. and then of course, there was my other experience there.

boyfriend and i went to costco today and he gave me the very important task of choosing which line we were going to stand in. after scanning enormo line after line, i saw some girl holding 1 thing in her hand behind someone with lots of stuff. that was it! we scooted to get behind the 1 item holding girl. all the while i kept thinking in my head "awww, costco totally needs like an express lane- this poor chick has to wait forever for the one thing she wants to buy. that totally sucks."

and then she did the unthinkable. right when it was her turn to go, her boyfriend showed up with a cart full of things. WHAT?!?!?? are you fucking kidding me??? that is totally misleading. false advertising. WHAT A BITCH. you can't do that! i told her that was fucked up. she laughed and said they have a "system" which was really code for "we fuck people like you all the time." i told her that now i was mad and that sucks. she kept laughing. i wanted to hit her, but part of me was still struggling with the fact that someone had the balls to even do that in the first place. the guy behind me asked, "how did those people with all those things get ahead of you???" he was so confused. and then pissed when i told him. and then horrified when i used the word "fucked" to explain it all.

so yeah. i hope that someone drove slow in front of them their whole drive home and they couldn't pass or get around them. and i hope someone does that to them next time they're in line at costco. cause it's rude as hell. and they suck.

I hate people who do shit like that. It's the same thing at amusement parks when you're standing in line and hear, "Excuse me" and a whole freakin' family barges through to the front of the line to the ONE PERSON they have "holding their place." Unbelievable!!! I can just picture that man's face when you used the word "fucked." Classic Hooch.

Costco. On a weekend. During the holiday season. You are a braver person than I am.

That sucks.

It's almost as bad as the person ahead of you in line at the grocery store, whose items have all been rung up - then they remember they forgot something and walk off to go get it.

Are you kidding me?

If she got me on a bad day..I might have kicked her in the neck.

If that happened to me and I had my kids with me, I'd beat her to death with her "single item."

I'dve had my kids kick her in the shins....that is sooo not on. Poor you!

RWA said...

Wow, jj..."kick her in the neck"?

That's some serious flexibility.

I feel you...

1. Costco DEFINITELY needs a damn express line.

AND

2. I was also at Costco this weekend (normally the weeknights are the best time to go w/out crowds, but damn it, we needed that veggie tray for a holiday party).

3. I ALSO got in line behind a person with one item who I don't even believe, said that her husband was coming with the cart shortly. To that point, I said "no big deal, but thanks for letting me know." If she hadn't of told me that, I would have totally pulled the Jennster, too, this weekend.

I hate it when people do that! It makes me want to ram them with my over-filled cart.

Loren said...

That is messed up!!!! but what can you really do? People like that have no manners!

Amy said...

Seriously? You have GOT to be kidding me!!! I would lose my mind! Although, my pet peeve with Costco, WTF is up with the huge families who have to stand around the free samples, blocking the aisles, like it is the first meal they have had in MONTHS or something?

Sarah said...

That does suck. I hate when people don't get that you actually hate them and aren't kidding. I guess it saves you from a physical altercation, but I wish they understood.

That sucks! My wife and I do the same thing though, except I have the big cart in line while she runs off to get the last few things on her list. I think that strategy is ok, right?

I hate people like that! Costco should not be braved on the weekend... not worth the aggrevation!
