The Costco Experience

I am new to Costco and - ye gads, it takes some getting used to. Today I found this written on the Costco mens' room wall:

"My first impulse in Costco is condescension. I look around with something bordering on loathing and think, what am I doing with these women in tinted hair and pantsuits and large-bellied men in button up short-sleeved shirts and chinos? By the time I leave, however, I feel an affinity with everyone there - the parents and children and husbands and wives and lovers and brothers and sisters of my neighbors making do as best they can from paycheck to paycheck. My heart breaks for them.

I am one of them."
