In a viral video with over 2.3 million views, the established TikTok account of Old Jewish Men (@oldjewishmen) shared their newest complaint: no raw onions at the Costco hot dog bar.

@Costco we’ve noticed and we’re taking action,” the caption read.

The older man walked up to the Costco counter to ask about his beloved raw onions that were missing as a topping. 

“How do you expect me to eat this [without] onions?” he asks. The Costco employee informed the older man that they haven’t had the raw onions out since the pandemic occurred. 

“How do you expect me to eat this then? I mean really,” he emphasized.

After a few exchanges of unintelligible words between the employee and the man, he eventually walked away.

“They can’t be serious,” he says at the end of the video.
