    I just had that same experience at Costco. I was in a motorized cart (broken foot) and a lady looks at me then stays in my way at the register. One side of my cart was dragging the register and the other side was smashing her in the sides, she still would not move. I hit her harder.

    When I first moved down here I managed an upscale dog kennel. I moved on when I started this business. Ran into the owner of the kennel today at Home Depot. Wants me to come back to handle the maintenance end of the business. Sure is tempting. If nothing else......less worries.

    Most Costco ppl are so.... they are terrible people. I worked there many years ago and I left when the hubs started our business. Pay is good but the members suck, not all but most!

    Most of the ones that are that way do not speak English as a first language.

    I gotta go 10 miles into town, it never fails I get stuck behind 3 rural mail carriers, 2 garabe trucks, 4 school busses, and when thing get moving Im behind a 105 year old bling man.

    Then when I reach the store I wait behind a few lazy people that will wait 20 minutes blocking my way too save 10 steps when parking, wait in line to get in the store and get a cart, 6 people wanting me to donate to there cause. So I make it into the store, trip over a half dozen employees, get run over 3 times by other shoppers, and cant get to what I want as everyone is on there cell phones blocking the isles. So after navagating all that mess the store is usually out of what I went there for in the first place........So I was able too but some beer, made it to the check out 20 minute line, then get searched on my way out because the casher dont give me a receipt for the beer, get to the car that I parked far away so no one would dent it and a shopping cart is leaning on it. Heading back home and get stuck behing 3 tractors, and someone ran over my mail box.

    Typical day.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
