The Weirdest Costco Day Ever

You all know Costco is MY favorite place.  I buy all kinds of things there.  Today, I went in just to purchase a couple of things, but I came out completely, totally empty-handed.  First, they did not have the one thing I really went in for, dry cat food.  But secondly, they only had 1 checker, and the line went all the way to the back of the store and wrapped around through the aisles.  As much as I love Costco, I do not need anything THAT bad.  Please tell me this was all a horrible dream and it did not really happen.  🙂

I have worked in the restaurant and catering industry for over 35 years. I attended 2 culinary schools in Southern California, and have a degree in culinary arts from the Southern California School of Culinary Arts, as well as a few other degrees in other areas. I love to cook and I love to feed people.

  1. It is crazy at our Costco too. They are still completely out of toilet paper. Last night, my wife ordered 2 packs of TP from Costco online. She got the order confirmation and then shortly after that we got an email saying the order was cancelled because the fulfillment center is completely out of toilet paper too. This virus and the media hysteria has people going nuts. People are stockpiling toilet paper because they are afraid of being quarantined and not being able to go out. Praying for our country and the world. God bless!

  2. Bruce was about to head over to the Costco at Wads. He went yesterday, but forgot the flyer with the bargains marked out. He missed a couple of things. I wonder if Costco is about to post a record profit. 🤔

    1. Now the regular grocery stores are like this too. I just got back from King Soopers, and it took me about an hour just to get through the line. I finally went to the self-check out, which only took about 20 minutes. Everyone is in a state of panic.

    1. I know. It’s mass hysteria. We all lived through all the other “pandemics” just fine, and now this is going to be the one that kills us all off. Oh wait …. the flu is far more serious and has affected for more people, with 1000’s more deaths. People are just crazy.

  5. It’s sad to see how fear makes people so selfish and silly. I’ve asked myself the same questions I was asking during the Y2K crisis 20 years ago as everyone was stocking up on canned goods, including, “What if everyone else is out of food and I have plenty? When they come to my door, would I really refuse to share?”

  6. It’s literally one of the viruses that cause the common cold. This whole panic is a sad commentary on the state of our clickbait/gotcha/conspiracy theory-driven media and societies that have large aging populations that they are not prepared for health care-wise. Past epidemics were worse by orders of magnitude, and the flu is killing a ton of kids *this year* with non-existent media attention. But the public has a lifetime supply of toilet paper and disposable masks that won’t do jack for them. At some point there is going to be serious backlash over this hysteria.

      1. My favorite “saying the quiet part out loud” part of all of this is that CA Governor Newsom banned gatherings of 250+ people, but exempted casinos, movie theaters, and Disneyland from that decree. It’s not hard to see who paid for his election, lol. (Disneyland has since decided to close after getting a bunch of bad press.)

      2. This virus is the end of the world. It’s just like the Walking Dead. But it’s okay to spread it as long as you are bent over a slot machine because those slot machines make political donations.
