A few funnies for you today…
I’ve decided that Costco stresses me out–the carts that are as big as a semi, the near-death experience of getting in and out of the parking lot, the feeling that if I buy the 10lbs of grapes I have to eat them in the next 3 days, and that I need to have super-human strength to lift your purchases after they are crammed into one giant box. Last weekend there was a problem with my card–I’d spent the time doing my shopping, got up to the check-out, and was told I couldn’t buy the items. I didn’t fly off the handle–I just walked away.
Here’s a funny look at 12 Ways to Lose Your Shirt at Costco. It’s funny but also a good look at how to be fiscally-responsible at Costco. #12:
12. Finally, what is your future health care cost resulting from those 50 ice cream bars you’re buying today?
Samples are evil, but at least they are free. If you approach Costco with equal doses of price skepticism, temperance, and fun you can find not only great deals but have a good time shopping. Treat it like a trip to Disneyland; it’s going to cost you more than you think, but the occasional visit there is worthwhile
I love this story–Axel the Lab who spends the day on the roof while his owner works as a roof thatcher. One note–Axel weighs 98 lbs.
Believe it or not, the #2 search term that brings people to the blog is “pineapple jokes” (#1 is “apples and arteries”). Without further ado, another cheesy joke – in honor of the end of the school year:
Q. Why was the music teacher not able to open his class room?
A. Because his keys were on the piano.
Have a great day!
so true about Costco, I have actually never shopped there for myself because I get so intimidated by it. I just can’t handle the massive sizes which I worry that I won’t use half the time.
There are just a few things I actually want to buy there – almond butter, sparkling water, and fruit if I know I’ll be able to eat it/use it in time.
oh my gosh! that DOG! 🙂 i love it.
So adorable how he just hangs out and even sleeps all day!
Ha!! That’s a great music teacher joke! Maybe I’ll be able to use it on my students someday!!!
Keep it in your back pocket!
Lol I like the Costco is like Disneyland analogy! I have a love-hate with Costco too- I like some items (contact solution, tp, etc) but the some of it seems so unnecessary (huge jars of mustard) and with the long lines, it always takes me at least an hour, even if I’m only buying one or two things. Sucks that you didn’t even get your things after you spent time shopping!
Does anyone (except maybe a restaurant or hot dog vendor) need that much mustard?! 🙂
what did the inflatable teacher say to the inflatable pupil who came to school one day with a pin?
“You’ve let me down, you’ve let yourself done and you’ve let yourself down” 🙂
Love the dog story and Costco tips!
Ha, Ha, Ha!
Oh man, Costco TOTALLY stresses me out. Once I walked in and took one look around and saw like 57 screaming babies and I turned right around and left. I couldn’t handle it.
I make it a little challenge with myself to get in and out as quickly as possible, buy ONLY what’s on my list, and use the self check-out. That whole deal where they look at your receipt and scan through your items when you leave really gets to me…
