Guest WiFi – exercise in frustration

This is a love-hate type relationship.

Have you ever been in a store and unable to get a cell signal? Yeah, it happens more than you think. Have you been in such a store only to find there is no “Guest Wifi” available to you? Irritating. I find this most irritating while shopping at Costco. I mean, come on, it’s a warehouse for crying out-loud. It wouldn’t be that hard to put wifi in the place.

On the other hand, there are those places that have “Guest WiFi” available but it doesn’t work or is slower than molasses (here’s one for you…electronics store Best Buy has spotty guest wifi). I was traveling recently and learned that there was a place nearby (a government agency, actually) that had guest wifi. So, I went to check it out. FULL signal, this is promising! However, no data transferred at all. It was basically the same as when you’re at home and you know the wifi is on and you get a signal but it has to be rebooted so it will allow the transfer of data. So, what was promising became just an exercise in frustration.

So, we are left with the love-hate relationship again. I love stores that make it available, but I hate places that have it and it doesn’t work.

 

Costco’s moldy bagel problem

Do you like bagels? That’s a silly question, right? I mean, as long as you aren’t gluten intolerant you probably like a bagel now and again.

Costco makes pretty good bagels, but then Costco has a real bagel problem too.

When you buy bagels at Costco you get a dozen bagels for $5.99 (or something like that). You pick two sleeves of six bagels, in your favorite flavor, and off you go. The problem with the bagels is they don’t keep long, not long at all.

If you want a bagel for breakfast you better have put them in the freezer and defrost one each day. The reason being is that if you leave the bagels out on the counter for more than two days, they get moldy. I mean like REALLY fast! Day three will likely find them with mold and you aren’t gonna want to eat that. It really is a problem as I have wasted my fair share of bagels over the years and I wonder if Costco even cares.

Anyone else experience this problem of nearly instantly moldy bagels?

Costco is killing the Polish

Costco is killing the Polish and in some ways they are killing a small piece of each of us.

Goodbye cheap lunch. Goodbye cheap dinner. Goodbye cheap date night (errr, ummm…).

The Polish dog is going away at Costco and I can say I am none too pleased. Not happy at all! That was my go-to food staple. It was nearly a must when you visited the store. Sure, I am going to still be able to get the plain ol’ hot dog, but that is not the same and it won’t make me happy like the Polish did. Comfort food it was, and now I am just left with discomfort as I mourn its death.

I am not sure who is making these decisions for Costco, but in my opinion he/she is an idiot. Replacing it with “healthy options”…  #smh #wth #sad

They are implying that the Polish was “unhealthy”. Well, the only unhealthy thing about this is going to be their bottom line when the customers revolt and refuse to buy that other crap.

See the article below and feel my pain:

Costco food court changes, say goodbye to the polish dog and hello to healthy options
