Two of the strangest things just happened to me & I absolutely need to go back to the house where it’s safe 😂
I was trying to make a Costco run & thought they opened at 9a. Arrived and discovered that they open @ 10a so I killed a little time and came back shortly after they opened. THEY WERE ALREADY PACKED. 😰
People were lined up to get in before they opened. It’s that serious.

So I run in and grab my 2 items. One is near the front. The other is in the back of the store. I weave thru the maze of Nike sweatshirts & Kirkland jeans in the middle (carts can’t fit.)
Get my chicken pot pie & zig and zag my way back up front and cut thru a few gaps between carts before getting to a short line (it wasn’t easily accessible.) Whew. Victory is mine.

There’s 1 person ahead of me loading her things. Then a man comes with his cart & gets behind me.
He bumps me. I ignore it.

He bumps me again.

And again.

I turn around. His wife says something to him in their language.
By now there are more people behind him. He keeps advancing with his cart. There’s no space for me to put my things down and now I’m almost wedged between the conveyor & his cart. Finally I can put my stuff down so I do. I could’ve reached for a divider thingy for him but...
...I was not feeling courteous.

And then...

HE STEPS AROUND ME AND GETS IN FRONT OF ME.
Now he’s between me & the woman in front of me. Her Costco card is on the register. Mine is next to hers. And this MF’er who has been trying to push me out of the store with his cart now wants to go before me 😭
I said “You’re AFTER me.”

He said “before you...after you. It don’t matter. Hahaha.” And goes back behind me. The lady in front of me glared at him & then looked at me like WTF? She gets her receipt & leaves.
I tell the cashier that I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. I’ve had people crowd me but never actually walk around me and get in FRONT of me.

Cashier stays out of it but hands me my receipt & is extra nice. “Thank you so much, Ms. Fox. You have a Merry Christmas.”
I pick up my stuff, turn around and say “NOWWWWWW it’s your turn.” He didn’t say a word. Turns out he wasn’t dumb after all...
I’m walking outside, thinking about this silly mess & the couples who were in Costco MELTING DOWN. One man was trying to explain something to his wife and he was enunciating every syllable in every word. 😂😰
One of the things I’m carrying out to my car kinda starts slipping so I adjusted it. I’m kinda looking down and to my right out of the corner of my eye I see these really cute cream colored Nike Cortez w/a tan swoosh.
I’m in motion, and blurt out to the owner “I like your Cortez.” She says “my what?” I’m like “your Nike’s!” She says “OH! Thank you!”

Mind you at this point, I’ve never seen the lady’s face cuz she was looking down.

And I’m thinking...I know that voice.
“BARBARA? Barbara _____???”

She goes “YESSSS?”

I’ve known this lady professionally for almost 25 years. She was my first headhunter. Like, she got me a job at Lotus in the late 90’s.
She asks me what I’m doing now & tells me to reach out to her.

So maybe that clownery happened so I’d be delayed a few seconds & run into Barbara. The End.
