I just left the Costco Tacoma, Washington . I didn't know my card expired 2-29-12.
I explained to the manager that I am on social security and I get paid tomorrow. I will definitely renew my card tomorrow.
I guess that wasn't good enough the manager was irritated. He proceeded to get loud and lecture me on how he wasn't going to approve my purchase (under $20.00) and I need to renew the card before trying shop at Costco again etc.
I am not a criminal I forgot to renew my card, 8 year member.
