My Best Frien-Emy

Did you know that problem gamblers can have themselves banned from their choice of casino(s) for an entire year?  That is freaking awesome!  For people who recognize they have a problem, (and likely after a really BAD binge) they can talk to the manager and have themselves put on a no-trespassing list along with their photo ID.  That way, when days pass and the remorse of the previous bender is forgotten and they want to go back, need to even, they are arrested on the spot for trespassing.  Seriously, it is BRILLIANT.  What better way to help someone who has an issue?  Keep them from the source!

Now, if only I could convince Costco to do this for me - I would be very, very happy (or, more to the point, Paul would be very, very happy...)  After trying to find a home for 14 boxes of cereal from our last trip, I think I may have a problem.

And NEED to be put on that list.

I often think of the huge ketchup container you bought 6 years ago and you asked all at your house how to store it. Laura told you to buy a smaller one next time.
Costco always has cereal. Get it next time.
Mark is at Costco right now. It's been 1.5 hours. How much is he spending...

if Costco banned you there would be 1 of 2 outcomes.
1. more trips to Superstore
2. no food at the Russell's.

Besides, I love it when you go to Costco, I feel like I've had my binge too :)



word verification...really?
