I went to Costco with Krista today. We walked into the store, I flashed my member card (like a boss) and strutted into the warehouse. We were immediately greeted by 'television guy' - that dude who gets paid to watch TV on 8 giant flatscreens and occasionally bother you as you walk in. Well, we made it past him with no problems. Little did we know what we had in store next. (haha pun).

The next booth down looked like a water cooler you would see in the office, and that's pretty much all it was. There stood one guy in a polo shirt, next to the water cooler and behind a little black table. As we walked past, he shouted "Water!" and held a cup of liquid out to us. We laughed, thinking he was joking, but a couple seconds later he did it again: "water!"
Now, I don't know what was wrong with this guy, maybe he had a super tough day at the water station and was losing his mind, maybe he was fed up with the fact that NOBODY wanted his water. That desperate plea "water!" must have been his last resort, as he wished to god he had been assigned the ravioli station or something instead.

The funniest part was when I ran back to the front to get a cart (who walks into Costco without a cart???) and I saw 'water guy' with his head in his arms, leaning on the water cooler. He MUST have had a rough day, poor guy.

P.S. Later at Costco we had champagne and orange juice in our cart (for guess what day...) and the pop corn sample guy said that popcorn goes well with mimosas. Who knew?
