Yes moran, it is a free country. That is why Costco is free to refuse to serve you if they want.

/As mentioned in the redlit thread:
Business that refuses to make a cake for a gay couple? Yeah! Right on! They're free to refuse service!
Business that refuses to serve someone who won't wear a mask? This is a free country dammit! You're not allowed to do that!

Truthfully, when Costco gets idiots like this, they should then send them their membership fees in a check and tell them they are no longer welcome in the store at all.

I figure if this shiat keeps happening, they will.

Um, no, that's now how any of this works.

Protected classes are protected.  You have to to allow all ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and genders.  If you don't you can't do business.  That is the law.  If Costco had refused to let him in because he was black or gay or transgender, I think you'd agree that that is not part of being a "free country."

Being an idiot is not a protected class.  Therefore Costco can refuse service for being an idiot.

Remember all the signs that read, "Click it or ticket?"  How about we change those to, "Mask it or casket?"

They are known for doing that.  Basically if they don't think they can make you happy and you are being a PITA about it, they refund your membership and ban you.

I think my favorite part about that, and there isn't a whole lot to love, was "my three THOUSAND followers on Instagram." Like fark, I'm Internet famous too, got shiatloads of funny votes on Fark, I got a few YouTube comments up into like...a few hundred likes, and I'm a content creator to boot. What's content? Doesn't matter, you're reading it.

I find it kind of odd that he managed the get as far as he did. They should have had someone at the door checking for Member IDs that would have enforced the mask policy on the way in. Did the guy wear a mask going in the door and take it off, or did he sneak by the greeter?

I'm thinking the guidance on mask wearing should be more clearly science driven.

IF you are wearing a mask THEN you are permitted to operate in public within 6 feet of other people.

IF you are NOT wearing a mask THEN you are permitted to operate within 15 feet of other people.

I mean, that's how the masks work.  You mask controls the toxic virus-laden breath billowing out of your mouth to settle and drop to the ground in about 4 feet, with a 2 foot safety margin for occasional sneezing or coughing.  Without a mask your virus-laden cloud of exhalations easily exceeds 6 feet and can reach 10 to 15 feet when you cough or sneeze.

That's the point. The same people that support business for refusing service (when they're gay) are the ones outraged at another business refusing service. It would be hugely hypocritical without the protected class aspect. That just makes them even worse.

Ok.
So, being science driven, how do we ensure said non-mask wearing people STAY 15' away?
Assign separate entrances and exits, or make them 19' wide?
Have traffic lights on supermarket aisles?
Make them wear 30' hula hoops in open public areas?
What about car parks?

If you don't have a practical and fail-proof solution can we make them wear the masks, you know, as science dictates?

Their store, their terms.

They could impose a rule that requires you to be ass-naked wearing dunce caps before letting you on their private property, and they would be completely in their right.  At most they would be required to let you terminate your membership and give you a pro-rated refund if you don't like the new terms.

at my store, most people are wearing masks. But we don't enforce anything or even ask people to wear or consider wearing masks because we don't want a confrontation. I myself got called an asshole by some non-mask-wearer when I politely asked him to step in front of me (where the plexiglass shield seperates us). and he picked up his purchases and went over to the self scan, as if that was some kind of punishment. (Good, now I don't have to serve that asshole... :p )

Resident Muslim: If you don't have a practical and fail-proof solution can we make them wear the masks, you know, as science dictates?


yes, exactly.   if you must insist on not wearing a mask, then lots of places cannot permit your presence.  It is your choice.  You have that freedom to choose.

You cannot be in my parking lot.  15 feet is wider than cars and trucks.  I'm sorry.  You cannot be in my store, the aisles are not wide enough to handle an unmasked customer.     Perhaps the Free Market will customize their store to cater to the unmasked customer while keeping staff and fellow customers a safe experience.  No, you cannot come through this drive through lane.  You cannot pump gas at this gas station.  You need to use the other entrance to this hospital.

I went to the grocery store today and since we are in NY state, it is mandatory to wear a mask and everyone in the store was doing so. And yes, I felt safer and I'm sure so did other shoppers and especially the workers. Assholes like the one in the video deserve a couple days in jail and a fine.

Oh, I'm sure they're going to. Maybe give them a second chance, but I bet it's no more than that. Remember, like 4-5 years ago, they canceled some lady's membership for abusing their return policy, saying "We try to satisfy our customers, but you obviously aren't happy with our products. Here's your money back, and have a nice day!".

I imagine that this would be along the lines of "We like our customers to be happy, but since you feel that your rights are being taken away, we're exercising our right to cancel your membership. You're obviously unhappy with our service, so here's your money back, and have a nice day!".

I'm more curious as to whether he has ANY Instagram followers at all, since according to TFA, he posted to Reddit.

And then deleted after everyone pointed out how much of a moron he was.

And then became the 'bad' kind of Internet Famous when Redditors re-posted his idiocy.

Yes, he probably put one on to get in the store, then took it off when he thought he could get away with it.

Which he didn't, of course.

No, he had a full cart by the point of the video. Costcos aren't that big. Unless the guy was sprinting through the store, grabbing shiat as he ran by, Tison would have caught him before he made it halfway through the store.

Asshole didn't cave... he pulled the video but then decided to double down instead.  His argument?  Everyone else was wearing a mask so he shouldn't have to, and its unfair the manager followed him around trying to make him wear one.

Here I am. The guy in the Costco freak out video addressing all of you that hated on me.Check out this video on Streamable using your phone, tablet or desktop.
