I went to Costco today. I bring my baby bag.
Obviously, there are only diapers in there, some baby wipes and baby bottle. At the exit, like always the same guy asked to check my bag. Only that employee does it. I usually show it to him.
But after talking to many people and using google. I know I have a right to refuse. He said his supervisor will check my bag. He called his supervisor.
I decided not to wait. Waste of my time. Two men chased after me. He said they can check any bag.
The other guy said its in the contract and there is a sign. But I never got a contract and I don't look at their signs. In fact, I never seen one. I went to other Costcos they never ask or check.
So I told the supervisor, I didn't steal. He said he didn't say I did. Well, then why are you checking my bag. It's like a purse.
He said then I have to check your purse. I was tryin to tell him. He can't. But I just did it, so I can go home.
But other employees don't even check. I told some girl there, no before. She didn't do anything. This guy *** me off.
He is overweight and unhappy! He claims it's his job to check. How come all the other people just let me go? I will file a complaint against discrimination.
The guy was White. I am Asian. My friends go to Costco all the time with their baby bag. Not once did they get asked.
They live and Costco is in a white neighborhood. The one I went to today is in the ghetto. All Asians and Mexicans go there. But I have a right to refuse.
I will do it again next time. I looked further into it. I will tell them they are taking my money. America gives me a right to refuse because it's my private belongings.
Plus the guy ask me to show my purse. I want them to see check every single purse from now on I go because I will complain why mine got checked but no other female. If they check every single purse. I am sure there will be a lot of upset customers.
They will lose a lot of members.
I also read that most thefts are from employees. It's always the insiders!!!
