I go there because I spent the money for a gold card and I can get there clearance stuff dirt cheap. I;ve gotten 5 lbs of protein for $10, good brands too.
But I go there and dont talk to the salespeople. I have a ton of stories from when they start conversations with me though. The latest:
I'm looking for a big deal on protein. I get 10 lbs for $45 so I'm pretty happy. Now the dude, no wait kid, helping me is about 18 years old and 90 lbs. Looks like he's never seen the inside of a gym in his life. He asks me a great leading question, "So how long have you been lifting." I try to not give an answer he can turn into a sales pitch. "A few years or so." The next thing out of his bitch ass mouth makes me want to punch him. "I would have thought a guy like you would want a better protein than that brand."
I say in a pretty sarcastic voice, "What would you recommend?" Of course he recommends the most expensive brands they sell.
I should have said, "I'll take bodybuilding advice from someone who has lifted a weight before." But I just kind of rolled my eyes, paid and left.
