I can't stand it when my truck is dirty. Just can't stand having a dirty vehicle in my garage. I wash it twice a week, even though it's a total waste of money in this weather... Every time I rub my fine wool jacket against filthy-dirty doors of other cars at parking lots I curse their owners... Slobs. Such gear grinders...

My wife says this is a weird gear grinder but it drives me crazy when people either don't know or pretend to not know the name of a movie or game or book for... reasons? I don't know?

My examples from the last few weeks:

Apex Legends (a video game, if you're unfamiliar) releases on a Monday, popularity blows up overnight. On the following Saturday I hear two guys at work chatting about it "Man, I got that new Apex game and played it every night all week. Apex... Champions? Warriors? Something like that" -- like, you've been playing a video game every night and don't even know the title of it? How?

Then just today same thing, some guys were talking about Marvel movies. "Oh yeah I'm excited for Avengers, I like Marvel movies. I saw the one that just came out and it was just okay, ah, you know, the one with the girl...?" You mean CAPTAIN MARVEL? A movie you couldn't have seen any more than one week ago and you can't recall the title?

How is this possible? Are people really that bad at paying attention or are they just faking it to appear less nerdy, or something?

You might just try not walking into cars? It's terribly easy.

Narrow parking spots. I took my kid to get his haircut and ended up parking 3 rows away to save a door ding. Costco has it figured out. I’ll take a wide parking spot and walk for a few more seconds to the front door.

The big parking spots is such an easy win for Costco. That and the $1.50 hot dogs. Best unhealthy lunch deal in town.

So true. Big carts and wide aisles. Lots of free samples. $8 roasted chicken & $1.50 hot dogs. Their Kirkland branded items are usually high quality. Their return policy is second-to-none. And they pay well. It’s the only store I go out of my way to shop at.

Agreed. Shopping there is a nightmare because its like a Zoo for people, but its worth it.

Disagree. Anytime my wife talks me into going grocery shopping with her to Costco, I end up buying sh..tload of stuff I don't really need in huge quantities, just because it looks like I MIGHT need it and the price is so darn attractive... It's a trap. A f..n' trap!

Watching a mob of people surrounding a booth to fight for free samples of food is hilarious and at times sad.

Costco gets a lot of things right. I've been to their stores before they open and it's awesome. There are fork lifts everywhere flying around, people are outside clearing snow and putting down salt to melt ice and just generally doing this to improve the performance of the store and the morale of the customers.

It's the shoppers I hate the most. This blogger got it right.

One thing I find Costco could do better is rounding up their carts and bringing them to the entrance. More often than not I find myself heading back out to the parking lot to get one. Minor complaint though.
