Ya’ll Didn’t Appreciate The Full Danger

I wrote a post back in September about how I couldn’t really use a Costco membership but was tempted to get one just to be able to buy their hot dogs. People kept pointing out that you could go into their concession area without a membership, but they just didn’t appreciate the full danger.

You see, my wife wants a Costco membership. Badly. Costco is just fun for her. However, it just doesn’t make sense for us.

I looked at what they had, what we bought, what was actually cheaper there and what wasn’t, membership cost, and all that. The membership cost didn’t make economic sense when we were buying things that we actually bought. It only made sense if we bought other things, things that were way worse for our diet. Their toilet paper is one of the best deals…if you’re willing to use it (no, I’m not). Unless we did it just so my wife could have another store to play around in, and we already go to too many, the math didn’t work out. I just don’t want a membership.

My wife does though. She brings it up from time to time. So far, I’ve managed to deflect her and we haven’t had a membership in almost ten years. However, if we were actually AT the store in order to get hot dogs, it would be much more difficult to deflect. I know that would be enough to keep her on trying to convince me to get a membership. She wouldn’t let it go so easily anymore.

THAT’S the real danger. THAT’s why it would still cost me a membership to get their hot dogs even if you don’t have to show the membership card to get into the concession area.
