At the Spartanburg Costco today, I noticed an Associate approaching people in line and explaining the Executive Membership.
This reminded me of something that happened last Friday in the Brooklyn Costco. At the check-out line, a man came up to me, spoke to me in Spanish and flashed an Executive Membership card .
"Oh, I have one", I said.
"You have one," he said in English, nodding.
I was really flattered that he thought I looked Hispanic - I guess because I think of Hispanic women as having great style, and also because he hadn't pegged me as a tourist.
