Yikes, this sounds like the beginning of a dystopian future movie.Things are getting weird (and awkward) at Costco. Ever since the start of the pandemic, I have been noticing the people you see in there giving out samples have been slowly replaced with more and more obnoxious and pushy people.
This last time I was in there, there was some man at the end of one of the aisles who was apparently trying to sell pots and pans. It was so bizarre. It was like an infomercial was ripped from TV like a page from a book and plopped down in the middle of Costco.
So he's there beating on these things and scraping them with forks and shouting "Look at that! It's METAL! IT'S METAL! These things will last a lifetime!". And even more awkwardly than that, he had decided that he wasn't loud enough without a PA system so you could hear him before you could see him.
Are they really that desperate?
