I walked in the door and a woman greeted me and asked if I had my membership card. I told her politely that I did not since it was my first time in. She suddenly changed her tone, gave me a look, sighed loudly, looked at her watch and said, well, I can get you set up with one in a few minutes but you're really not going to have much time to shop tonight. After she said that she just stared at me with her eyebrows raised. I stood there for a second, shrugged and said OK, thanks and walked out the door.
I still want to check the store out, but I was put off by this. There were still 45 minutes until closing! I had no intentions of shopping until midnight!
