Now I have posted in previously about my cart watching experiences in Costco.  And so when I recently popped into Costco for a quick trip I was a little started by what happened.  I was nonchalantly checking my grocery list on the end cap of an aisle with a pallet of peanut butter beside me, the peanut butter is an essential part of my story.  When a older lady and her older husband walked by, I saw them briefly out of the corner of my eye.  Now people here in Washington tend to be pretty friendly, at least from what I have experienced.  But this time it was a little too friendly.  I stood there looking at my phone when the older man came up to the side of me.  He looked at me and said “would you steal some of the penis butter for me?”  Yes, I thought for a second that he was kidding, I just stared at him trying to see if I had misunderstood him due to his age.  But then he confirmed his startling comment with a follow up of “I’m a dirty old man aren’t I?”  He then walked away after his wife.  I was shocked, I stood there trying to process what had just happened.  A minute later when my Mother returned to the cart she she could see from my face that I was confused.  I related the story and she was shocked to.  I laughed out of sheer amazement as I told her, I could hardly believe what happened.  Is that considered Sexual Harassment?  I have never had anything like this happen to me before, granted he was old but it was really startling to me to hear an older guy say that!  So that was a total first for me at Costco, I will be sure to stay away from that old guy if we happen to be there at the same time again.  Weird, and Creepy right?
