I tried to join Costco. Thankfully, I stopped before I joined. You have to walk into the store to pick up your card. They don’t mail you the cards. My nearest store is totally inaccessible to anyone who does not have a vehicle, in the snobby town of Cranberry. Cranberry took down its bus system, refusing to allow bus riders to have access. That’s how snobby they are there. I have no desire to set foot in Cranberry, though I went through there once…it is very ugly there, bunch of concrete, all stores and shit.
I called up the store and they were rude and snobby. They refused to budge, saying they would not bend their policies. After all, I might be some fraudster. Of course I am! They told me I can go to Cleveland, after all! Sure I can…..
Two hours by bus into Pittsburgh, wait for that once-a-day Amtrak, then, take the Amtrak to Cleveland (how many hours is that, five or six?), go to Costco, then, pay for a hotel in Cleveland, then, take the Amtrak back, then, take a two-hour bus back home. Will Costco pay for the dog sitter, night in a hotel, Amtrak fare, and time off of work? Why doesn’t Costco pay for a bus system to Cranberry, too?
Bye, bye, Costco. Much as I hate Amazon and Walmart, I’m stuck with them. I’m looking into Target too. I hear they deliver.
