Maybe some day I'll be able to purchase an Orlando-auction special 997 with plasti-dipped wheels.


I can dream.

I could deliver another pizza in that time, and make more back in tips.

That sucks. I've never spent more than 5 minutes waiting for a pump.

Same here it's a matter of going at the right times like any other "low priced" gas station. I forget is costco gas a tier one like shell or tier two like arco or in between?

Well, I guess local to my previous job. It was the one in Alhambra. Worth it if you have a friend who will drive around/get it for you. Otherwise, forget it. During peak hours it's full of angry, hungry Asians who will run anyone over with their cars/carts.

I hit that Costco a couple of years ago on a Wednesday afternoon. It was a freakin' zoo.

I just got back from Tustin Costco, where you need the card to get to Chicken Bake 'cuz it's in the store. I do like the CB, but keep thinking somehow that they're gonna "go Subway" one day and maybe slip some spinach or peppers in there. The CB needs vegetables.
