As a cyclist, you know how easy it is to rack up expenses in pursuit of ... well, whatever it is you're chasing.
That's why you probably pounce on a good deal when you see one. And that's why, when we found these Honey Stinger waffle lookalikes at Costco (though, to be fair, the Stinger Waffles are the copycats here) we jumped on them.
Like, we bought four boxes.
But there was sadness upon visiting Costco this weekend: the waffles are gone. Not relocated to another wing of that giant, hangar-like space. Not simply out of stock temporarily.
We got over our sadness when we realized our stock is ample. But not everybody was so easily soothed. Take Kevin Gilinsky, for example. He nearly rode off the road when he heard the news. So he marched into Costco — and that's how we picture him walking in — and demanded answers.
Here's how that turned out:
Okay, yes, so they are out, but not deleted from their system. This means the buyers are not sure whether to place a reorder.
Manager told me to fill out a slip in the comment box saying we would like to have them place a reorder for item #593686. They then mail all those slips every day to the buyers.
Well that makes it pretty clear, doesn't it? Costco waffle buyers, get thee to the store and fill out a slip. Thrifty bike racers everywhere demand it!
