I picked up a box of yogurt today at Costco. I got to the check out line and put the yogurts on the belt. A female Costco employee picked up my box of yogurt and found the bar code on the bottom of the box.
Then she turned my yogurt box upside down and put it on my shopping cart so her partner would scan it. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was pretty pissed.
"Yogurt should not be upside down. Thank you. Sorry.." I said.
She turned my yogurts right side up as we exchanged fake smiles.
I thought it was pretty messed up. She’s not stupid. She knew what she was doing. Basically she didn’t care. This was the first time in many years walking out from Costco feeling mis-treated. It was a little thing she did that ruined my perfect image about Costco.
I still have a sour taste about today’s experience.
I don’t think she will work at Costco for too long, not with that kind of rotten attitude.
You don’t flip a man’s yogurt cup. You just don’t. If you do, we will whine about it.
