I’ve had one of those crazy weeks, and I can’t believe it is only Wednesday honestly. It’s been such a weird week that I even forgot that yesterday was Tuesday and didn’t get my post published. So, sorry for skipping my regularly scheduled post.
If you’ve gone to Costco, chances are good that you drove or at least were a passenger in a car. And that definitely means you have driven through the parking lot and tried to find a parking spot. But of course, it is almost as crazy in the parking lot as it can be in the store. Of course, in the parking lot people are in cars which is a lot scarier than just a big cart. Every Costco location I’ve been to around the world has the same type of situation in the parking lot: lots of cars and people walking around with the big carts.
I don’t know what it is about the Costco parking lot but people seem to get really impatient if you want to take a few minutes to put all of the stuff from your cart into your car. What do they think? That you went to Costco but didn’t buy anything and it should take 5 seconds to put everything in the trunk? It’s like there’s all these people who have forgotten what they are shopping at Costco for in the first place. And I also don’t understand why they don’t just park a bit further away instead of stalking departing shoppers throughout the parking lot. I’ve actually had someone follow me from the door to my car and then sit there and glare at me while I got the stuff out of my car. While they were stalking me they should have noticed that my cart was piled with tons of stuff and it wasn’t going to magic its way into my car instantly.
I’m positive that everyone who has shopped at Costco more than once, has a funny, crazy, horrible, or annoying story about their experiences in the Costco parking lot. Of course, not so many of us write them down. And write them out with lots of humour too. But luckily, I’ve found a humorous take on parking lot shenanigans that will give you a good laugh. Everyone needs a good laugh by mid-week, I know I certainly could use one this week. So enjoy the laugh and maybe take a second to evaluate your own parking lot etiquette. Enjoy!
