Went to Sam's Discount Warehouse Club yesterday to pick up some necessaries. Knowing they had some trouble with the credit card companies, I asked the checkout ladies what credit cards they accepted. Here's the well-rehearsed "party line". . .

We accept Discover Card, along with debit cards and, of course, cash and checks. We also have a store credit card that's accepted at both Sam's and Wal Mart, so you have one-stop shopping convenience.

In this case, "one-stop shopping convenience" means "convenient provided that the only place you ever shop is at Wal Mart or Sam's". Which ain't so convenient.

I rolled my eyes, put back the couple of items I'd picked up, and left. There's a Costco a few blocks over, so I decided to dump my Sam's membership in favor of Costco. . .provided they accept credit cards. I popped by to find that they accept only American Express and debit cards.

I ended up buying my groceries at the local Tom Thumb, which accepts everything.

I must ask the CFO's of these two stores. . .

1. What are you smoking?
2. Where can I buy some?
3. Can I pay for it with my MasterCard, or do they only accept Diner's Club?

Did a moving starfield for the Game That Cannot Be Named. That appears to be about the limit of the stuff I can do for it. Java on phones is slooooooow.

That's good to know. I'd been thinking about starting to go to Sams or Costco but looks like I'll stick with Tom Thumb also.
