The Worst Thing You Can Do With Free Samples At Costco
By Haldan Kirsch
There are lots of reasons to love Costco, but one of the best ones has to be the free samples. There's nothing like browsing through flat-screen TVs and refrigerators with a tiny cup of pizza rolls in hand, and while there is no limit to the number of free samples you can take, you should keep some unspoken rules of etiquette in mind.
One of the worst things you can do after you've enjoyed your free sample at Costco is to not properly dispose of your dish, napkin, or eating utensil. There are plenty of trash cans around, and while employees might be paid to keep things tidy, there's no need to make their jobs harder than they need to be.
Also, remember that just because the people giving out the samples are happy to chat with you about the product, you still need to be aware of those around you. Some shoppers tend to block the aisle while they enjoy their treat, so try not to linger while you enjoy your sample, and keep an eye on your surroundings while you do so.
