For real, costco can be a VERY dangerous place. people hover, hiding behind the nearest freezer unit, and as soon as that paper cup drops and a little morsel is placed on it… I’ve never seen so many people materialize out of nowhere. Costco is where ninjas happen.
I always feel socially obligated to complement the product i’m sampling to the people who… supervise? the sample tables. Yesterday I saw a guy who felt socially obligated to have full blown conversations with the sample people. It was awesome, and if it weren’t for the fact that it was making it impossible for the sample person to tell the 30 people who had gone through in the mean time what product they were sampling, i’m sure it would of been appreciated. Or maybe not!
