Experiences Everyone Who Shops at Costco Has Had ...

By Lyndsie

Having a Costco membership is special. I mean, it's not hard to get one if you're willing to pay for the privilege, so it's not completely exclusive or anything, it's just … well, the membership is incidental, really. It's simply the Golden Ticket you need to reach the wonder of Costco. And there, my friends, there waits a world of magical experiences.

1 The Promise of Free Samples

The Promise of Free Samples They never stand a chance. You are willing to try everything because it costs nothing.

2 What It's like when Everyone else Has the Same Idea as You

What It's like when Everyone else Has the Same Idea as You You have to feel sorry for the people manning the sample tables. We attack like a school of sharks.

5 Dealing with That One D-bag Who's Always Exactly Where You Want to Be

Dealing with That One D-bag Who's Always Exactly Where You Want to Be It's just … it's just that there's so much of Costco to get through. There simply is not time to navigate certain situations that impede your progress. One time I ran into a barricade of high chairs lined up in the aisle.

6 The Sheer, Awe-inspiring Size of the Snack Aisles

7 That Overwhelming Need to Buy an Overabundance of Everything

That Overwhelming Need to Buy an Overabundance of Everything Don't get me wrong, it's practical to buy huge packs of toilet paper, laundry detergent, and things like that, but that industrial-sized bag of Pizza Rolls is just next level. …actually, is that a real thing?

8 Trying to Dodge the Pushy Salespeople

Trying to Dodge the Pushy Salespeople They are very aggressive. Like, very aggressive. That's annoying … until you happen to need whatever they're offering.

9 Gearing up to Get in and out as Quickly as Possible

Gearing up to Get in and out as Quickly as Possible And the triumph when you clock in at less than half an hour!

Especially when it happens more than once. Because, again, this is your Costco.

The Willa Wonka Wonderland That is the Candy Aisle I can't even think about it without getting the tingles, tbh.
