Funny story. Went to Costco this afternoon and the lady checking membership at the door did not allow me to go in. The reason? I had a camera slung over my shoulder and apparently they are afraid of industrial espionage. Nevermind, that the camera in question was a chrome M with goggled lens... not that she would have know necessarily, but the camera was loaded with BW film. Not exactly high-tech spying gear in 2012.
the irony, of course, is that while she debated with me about the dangers posed by my camera, half a dozen shoppers with iPhones in their pockets were welcomed in without any second thoughts.
