I went to Costco this morning and first went into one of the lines for the gas pumps. The pumps can be accessed from both sides, but all traffic drives one way in and one way out. The hoses are longer than usual so if your tank is on the left side, as mine is, the hose will still reach. Just barely.
I used to avoid the pumps on the left but decided I would just take what will be the quickest way through the station. Today I was trying to stretch the hose, hold my sunglasses in my hand (which I had taken off in order to read the instructions on the pump), and also my Costco card and debit card. I wanted to get rid of something so tried to put on my glasses, but nearly dropped the cards. There is always an attendant there, and the female attendant came up and took over holding the pump. I got myself straightened out but she insisted she would pump the gas for me, and told me that when I come back I can just toot the horn and an attendant will come and pump the gas for me.
I was really pleased with Costco - I don't know if that is standard with all of their stores or just the one I shop at, but it was so nice to stand and chat with the attendant while she was pumping the gas. Costco really tries to be good to its members, which is certainly a big difference from some of their competitors - B.J.'s comes to mind.
I am trying to get off the sweets I've been craving, and safely got past the biscotti and the box of 24 Danish. But further along, dang if I didn't go past another display of biscotti and my guard was down. I haven't had one for a long time and enjoyed it after my lunch. Mmmmm good!
