With party season almost upon us, there’s nothing worse than having to wait your turn for the bottle opener. This torturous wait has forced many a genius to find new and creative ways to open their beer bottle. From using the edge of a desk to a door lock or even one’s eye (actually saw this happen once), those old ways pale in comparison knowing that you and 23 of your closest pals can enjoy the fruits of your labour all at once with this 24-bottle opener. While imperfect (listen to those cheers), it’s still better than nothing and should be your next party staple.
Asides from buying cheese blocks the size of your head for relatively dirt cheap (okay, I’m exaggerating about the size of the cheese) and the abundance of free samples, having to peruse items that only come in JUMBO size in a warehouse is a depressing concept. There are no boyfriend chairs to sit on as you wait for you significant other to debate the merits of buying the 30 pack of batteries versus the 40 pack, and the only feeling you will get after you consume their poutine is regret. But if you’re going to spend an hour or two in a Costco on your much valued weekend time, you might as well have fun, right? Here are 5 inappropriate things to do at Costco that’ll help you kill some time.
1. Strategically pose some stuffed animals
Because you know that some parent out there will have to explain the Birds and the Bees to their kids that day.
2. Change a sign
Is it wrong if it’s accurate?
3. Do some strategic product placement
If you know someone who works at Costco and has a fork lift license, why wouldn’t you?
4. More clever stuffed toy placement
This is what camping is all about, right?
5. Have a Costco hotdog eating contest with another bored patron
They’re 1.50 EACH!
Or you can just try to find a comfy display to sleep in to try and pass the time.
There is something to be said about sitting down with a big mug of coffee, tea, or any warm drink of your choice as it’s one of the best, most comforting feelings known to man kind.
I remember in high school when I would sit down to study or do homework I would make myself a big cup of tea or coffee to get myself calmed down and ready to be productive. It always did the trick and kept me focused and free of panic.
A mug can be sacred to a person who finds serenity in sitting down with a hot drink. For this reason, everybody should have a go-to one that is representative of their personality. It makes the experience that much more serene.
The world (and internet) is plentiful with unique mugs. I’m sure you can can even get your own made if you really wanted to. Your own mug can become your staple, also it will prevent anyone else in your family from using it if you have a one that is distinctly yours.
For me personally, I think I would invest in a big mug with Time Square on it or a quote about dreaming big. Yes, you just got the ultimate insight on who I am as a person which is my point: your mug should encompass who you are or at least a small fraction of you reflected on it.
Here are some suggestions of cool mugs to suit your unique characteristics

Gaga walked into the bar dressed in black leather and shades, reports PerezHilton. After sitting with a friend drinking whiskey and Diet Cokes, she decided to buy rounds for everybody.
One of the patrons in the bar said, “Everyone was stunned when this striking blonde came in. Most of the blokes had no idea who she was at first. She sat at the bar with a pal for two hours, downing spirits and scribbling notes. She told the locals how much she was enjoying having a drink on a day off because she can’t handle drinking before a show. She signed autographs for staff and left a huge tip – a few hundred pounds.”
