    15 Questions We All Ask Ourselves Every Time We Shop At Costco

    Why is the sample lady taking so long?

    1. Should I be ashamed that I only came here for the samples?

    And should I also be ashamed that I snuck two of each one?

    2. Do I really need THAT much of my favorite food?

    They say you only regret the things in life you don't do.

    3. Are people judging me for buying alcohol in bulk?

    Come on, this much vodka for only $19.99?!

    4. Is today the day I break down and finally buy the giant bear?

    It's going to happen sooner or later.

    5. It's smart to buy more so I never run out, right?!

    Twitter: @laurentayyy83

    It'll always be there when I need it.

    6. And who decides what items get sold in bulk anyways?

    Twitter: @TheKidJayM

    I guess it would be a shame to run out.

    7. Why am I about to wait in this sample line? Why is it taking so long? Don't I have better things to do?

    No, actually nothing is more important than tasting this new chicken tetrazzini.

    8. Do I have space in my cabinet for all this?

    I will find room. Where there's a will there's a way.

    9. Do I even need to bother with the gym after all this heavy lifting?

    Twitter: @carlyflumer

    A Costco membership is basically the same thing as a gym membership.

    10. Am I out of toilet paper already?

    kendra.heff / Via

    Probably not, but it's not really a trip to Costco without getting toilet paper.

    11. Do you think people can see through my sample-scheming habits?

    @svagelj / Via

    I basically deserve an Oscar for this performance.

    12. Why do people walk so slow?

    Twitter: @ShannonReader

    Get out of my way, there's another sample over there!

    13. Do people who don't own restaurants actually buy giant tubs of mayo?

    14. Is it bad if I order a slice of pizza even though I just had dozens of samples?

    Twitter: @CostcoConoiseur

    Absolutely not. I stand by my decision.

    15. And at this point in life, I would be more upset if I lost my Costco card than if I lost my credit card.

    Credit cards can be frozen or immediately cancelled. Getting a new Costco card is basically the same as going to the DMV. No one wants to do it.
