Let me preface this by saying that I love the idea of Costco and the things that they sell. The issue I have is all the fuckin’ samples that they now have at the end of every aisle! I get the idea behind it as a business that’s promoting what they’re selling but as a customer it drives me up the wall! The masses huddle around this little make shift table so they can stuff their fat little faces with free food … and they don’t care what it is. It could be a turd on a cracker and they’ll try it! It’s not like they happen to be walking by and see a sample, grab one and keep moving. NO! These assholes will just detach from their carts like brain dead zombies and walk towards the samples … leaving their cart in the middle of the aisle completely oblivious to the fact that I’m behind them and their cart is now in my fuckin’ way. And Lord forbid if the little snack isn’t ready, they’ll just stand there for 5 minutes and wait until the little machine dings with the next batch. They start salivating like Pavlovian dogs waiting for the little old lady to start serving them up. It’s all I can do not to scream at the top of my lungs at every single one of these inconsiderate assholes. There have been many carts that I have just started ramming and pushing down the aisle. They don’t even notice half the time because they can’t break eye contact from the food on the table. They’ll cut right in front of Grandma with the walker and not give two shits! If you are one of these people, I despise you with every part of my being!
