We Will Fight the Threat with Fighting

I’m so happy now. My room has room (finally) with this new set-up I just bought; I’ve finally figured out how to turn off the annoying power on/off noise on my phone; I’ve gone somewhere; and everything is A-OK.

While in Winnipeg last week, I went into a Costco for the first time. My god, it’s like that mega mart from The Simpsons, only real. It’s an ugly-as-fuck warehouse with little to no organization at all – in essence, a chaotic mess of oversized products. Some of the prices on these huge-ass things are okay, but even when confronted with the best deal, you must consider that you have to pay AT LEAST $40 a year in order to shop there, which is just fucking weird (the different levels of membership even have different store hours. It’s like we’re living in India). The store I went to even had a little restaurant/stand thing, which served everything and did not require a membership to go to (it’s basically its own entity).
The thing isn’t as frightening as a Super Wal-Mart, but there’s definitely something ugly about it. Unless you really need to have 20+ packs of toilet paper, 32-pack drinks, child-sized bags of chips, or any of the other pointless things…I don’t see any real need to shop there. And like hell would I buy a computer or iPod at a horrible warehouse store.
