A retiree's last trip to Costco

Yesterday I was at Costco buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my
loyal pet, Owen , the Wonder Dog and was in the check-out line when a woman
behind me asked if I had a dog.
What did she think I had an elephant?
So because I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse, I told her that
no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that
I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that
I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes
coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and the way that it
works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one
or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete,
(certified), so it works well and I was going to try it again.
(I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled
with my story.)
Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food
poisoned me.
I told her no, I had stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit me.
I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was
laughing so hard.
Costco won't let me shop there anymore. Better watch what you ask
retired people.
They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say.

Can't understand Costco's position on this you would think they would appreciate having their customers entertained.
