Accosted at Costco!

While leisurely perusing through my local Costco this morning, I was verbally accosted out of nowhere by a lady that quite frankly needed to mind her own freakin business.

I was pulling two boxes of "Egg Starts" (the Costco brand egg substitute) out of the refrigerated case when this lady who I hadn't noticed before pipes up with "those really aren't a good choice for you." Excuse me?

Flashback to 4-5 months ago when my cart at Costco would have contained that big package of go-straight-to-my-thighs muffins Costco sells and maybe the lady's comment would have been slightly warranted. But today I was buying egg substitute and the only other thing in my cart was frozen boneless skinless chicken.

So I looked at the lady and said "Excuse me?"
Her reply: "There are really better ways to lower your cholesterol than eating those."
My reply: "My cholesterol doesn't need lowering, it is in normal levels."
Her biotchy reply: "Only a doctor can tell you that and I doubt it is."
My reply: "Well he has and it is, not that it's any of your business."
Her snooty reply: "Well there are better things you should do if you want to be healthy."
My taking-the-high-road reply: "Well thank you for your input, have a good day."
Her not-getting-over-it reply: "If you want to know more I have good information......"
My walking away reply: "I'm sure you do. Bye."

I figure she was probably selling some product and thought it to be brilliantly good marketing to approach women in Costco. But what nerve to pick me out and insult my health and make comments about my food choices. Uggh.

By the way, Costco has the best price on egg substitute anywhere. It is one of my breakfast staples.
